"The 3POD PISTOL GRIP BALLHEAD is a favorite of professional photographers. Portrait Shooters, Landscape Artists, Still Life Photographers, and even Product Photographers love the ease of use and adjustment afforded by a grip-head. The 3POD 4-Section Monopod is a professional photo and video Monopod, featuring 4 fully adjustable sections for maximum height in a minimal package, cushioned grip, flip lock leg locks, and a pivoting fluid base with tripod foot. Mounting the Tilt Head with quick release creates an excellent combination for photographic use. Grip-heads allow photographers to easily yet precisely compose an image, even with a heavy camera and lens combination. Simply squeeze the grip to allow the ballhead to be adjusted, and when you have your desired composition, release the grip, to firmly lock the ballhead in place. Since the gripping and adjusting are all done with the same hand, it leaves the other hand free to zoom, focus, balance the camera, or make other adjustments. The speed of one handed adjustment makes the grip head a favorite of photographers with time constraints, like wedding and portrait photographers, and the ease of use makes it the choice of photographers who want to focus on their subject, not their equipment. The 3POD Pistol Grip Ballhead has some great advantages and features that make it a winning choice.
