3 Legged Thing AirHed Cine-A Video Head Arca-Swiss Compatible Summary

The AirHed Cine-A is 3 Legged Thing's first dedicated video head and as they don't do things by halves it’s made from precision milled from aerospace-grade magnesium alloy. The head features a distinctive spiderweb design and has an adjustable, tilt mechanism that offers smooth movement and can be controlled directly, or with the included panning arm. The arm can be fitted to either side of the head for right or left-handed operation.

The head features a friction control for the tilt mechanism, knurled clamp knob for improved grip and leverage and 360 panning base which can be locked off as required. The side of the head includes a 1/4"-20 screw thread for the attachment of accessories such as articulated arms, and there are built-in bubble levels in the clamp and base for precise levelling.

The AirHed Cine-A's Arca-Swiss compatible mounting plate is made from anodised magnesium alloy and includes a 1/4"-20 Stainless Steel mounting screw, and rubberised pads for secure connection to camera bases.
