Kirk heads are the stuff of legend - there are many stories of photographers that own 20-year old Kirk heads that still work perfectly. Kirk products epitomize American manufacturing - simplistic perfection made from the very best materials in a no-fuss design that works and lasts.
The Kirk BH-1 tripod head offers serious and precise functionality in a compact and tough design that can handle serious knocks. It is rated to carry a massive 22kg, which is sufficient for anything in the world of photography, yet weighs only 850g. One large and easily adjustable knob controls all motion, making it simple and easy to change your composition. Two smaller knobs control a panning base and the amount of friction applied to the ball. This means that 95% of the time, you will only need to make use of a single knob to change your composition.
All external components are crafted from a tough 6061-T aircraft aliminium to save weight and avoid corrosion. The internal parts are either brass or stainless steel to ensure long-lasting performance. The ballcup is a self-lubricating Delrin composite, which means that the head is 100% maintenance free.
Kirk makes use of the Arca-Swiss system, which is the world-wide favorite for all of the top brands of tripod heads, plates and accessories. This means that your head is compatible with an endless variety of plates and accessories from various manufacturers.
