The SIRUI VA-5 Ultra-Compact Video Head uses a fluid system to produce smooth pans and tilts for binoculars and spotting scopes weighing up to 6.6 lb. It features independent pan and tilt locks and uses an internal spring-assisted counterbalance mechanism for smoother tilt movements with heavier cameras. A TY-70A quick-release plate comes included, for forward/backward adjustment possible when attached to the head to help balance your camera. A dual safety lock system prevents the plate and your camera from falling off the head when the primary locking mechanism is loosened. To release the plate, simply press the secondary release button. To assist in horizontal alignment of your shots, the head has two bubble levels: one on the base of the head to align the tripod and one on the top of the head to align the camera. One pan handle comes included.
