Rollei T8S Pano
The most versatile member of Rollei's new generation of professional ball heads is undoubtedly the T8S Pano. Carefully milled from quality aluminium, the individual parts of the panorama head work together absolutely backlash-free and allow a maximum payload of an impressive 35 kg. This load-bearing capacity is even sufficient for full-frame cameras equipped with premium class super telephoto lenses. The fixation of the ball element holds the maximum load even in the 90° recess absolutely securely directed to the desired motif - your quality guarantee for pin-sharp long-term exposures and filter shots. The enclosed Arca Swiss quick-change plate has a length of 60 mm and offers sufficient contact surface for particularly heavy professional housings and other high-end accessories.
The highlight: the second panorama axis for difficult terrain
For perfect panoramic shots from a tripod, the ball head with the spirit levels must be precisely aligned to the horizon - on uneven ground or rocky subsoils, levelling over the tripod leg length is often quite time-consuming and laborious. The new Rollei T8S Pano makes this adjustment work much easier. When ground conditions are uncomplicated, use the clearly visible scale at the foot of the tripod head, present the damping via the separate rotary knob, which can also be easily operated with gloves, and finally fix the ball. If the tripod is tilted, you do not have to align the individual legs with much effort, but can use the second panorama axis above the ball head. Directly under the Arca-Swiss fixation there is another scale and a locking screw. You can use your own spirit level to precisely align your camera and start taking panoramic pictures immediately.
