The C1 tripod head, ARCA-SWISS C1 cube with its unique patented design makes possible, a level hitherto never reached, secure and precise camera positioning through precision workmanship and variety of movements. Photographic apparatuses can be moved micrometrically in two axes.
Because the camera moves inside the circular arc, object distance and image window are hardly altered. A panorama at the base of the tripod head serves to align the camera / recording instrument to the object.
Having aligned and levelled the unit, a second panorama, located above the tilting axes permits swivelling movements of 360º without altering the perpendicular. The camera is fastened with the new, patented ARCA-SWISS Flip-lock® quick release system which guarantees secure displacements or quick exchanges of the units by way of two functions.
In spite of the complexity of the device and the required stability, it has been possible to reduce the dimensional weight by a sensational 63%. It now amounts to only 35 oz / 994 grams.
- Geared X-Y axes with adjustable gear tension.
