Product information "d4 geared pan "MonoballFix""

The d4 is a symbiosis of a spherical head and a 3D tilt head. It is built of high quality and exceptional strenght.
ARCA-SWISS has succeeded in combining the advantages of both systems in one head and even integrating significant improvements over a conventional 3D tilt.
I think, it is a reinvention of a 3D tilt head.
The heads are small and compact, the usual annoying big levers are missing here completely.
You can use a d4 can like a normal ball head or like a 3D tilt head with geared movements.
When the X and Y axes are open, you can move the camera freely, but unlike a normal ball head, you can move them separately. This works even when both axes are open - even more accurately when one of the two is fixed.

The d4 has 2 panoramas: A rotating device is located at the base of the head.
With this the camera is aligned. The 2nd panorama is above the axes, so a perfect panoramic pan is made with the neatly adjusted camera.
The innovative design of the d4`s combines the pivot points of the X and Y movements into one point. This makes the panning radius of these movements very small. Found perspectives are preserved when readjusting.
The head's swiveling is equipped with a self-locking shock absorption feature, allowing for near total compensation of the camera's weight
Another notable feature is the positioning of the spirit levels. They are located below the upper panorama device and are arranged at a 90° angle. Both are visible so that the photographer can level his camera well even from a low position.

What does "GP" mean?

GP stands for geared panning and means that the upper panorama can optionally be freely panned or geared for a smooth continuous movement.

Question from Herr D*** , Date: 14.04.2022

This will sound dumb, but my freind and I cant seem to agree. Which direction is the camera attached to the plate? With the locking knob in the back or in the front. I like the front so its under the lens and out of the way. Am i wrong? Thanks.

Answer from the shopowner

Hello, are you talking about a camera plate or are you talking about where the camera is attached to the tripod head? The camera should always be mounted on the tripod head so that it is in "balance". So with a long, heavy focal length, the lens should be attached to the tripod head.

Question from Anonym Anonym , Date: 15.09.2021

Ich bin auf der Suche nach einem Stativkopf für nachstehende Ausrüstung und Anwendungsgebiete: - Ausrüstung: Nikon Z6 / Z7II mit 14-24 / 24-70 / 70-200 mm/2.8 Zoomobjektiven, einem Z 105 mm/2.8 Makro, sowie einigen älteren Zeiss Milvus Optiken (füt Nikon F- Bajonett)! - Anwendungsgebiete: Landschafts-, Reise- , Wildlife-, (Bike- Trekking, Hochgebirge, Safari, usw.) und zukünftig Panoramafotografie (Zunächst einzeilig Panoramen mit Brennweiten ca. 35 - 105 mm; Später auch sphärische mit Brennweiten ca. 14 - 28 mm)! Hinweis: Ich trage meine Kamera sehr häufig mit dem "Peak Design Capture"- System am Schulterriemen meiner Rucksäcke! Ich habe so die Kamera sicher im Transport und sehr schnell "schussbereit"! Welchen Stativkopf und welches Zubehör (Insbesondere für die Panoramafotografie) würden sie mir empfehlen, und warum? Welches Bedienkonzept für die Klemmung der Schnellwechselplatte würden sie mir empfehlen, und warum? Wie ist, das von ihnen vorgeschlagene System, mit meinem "Peak- Design Capture"- System kompatibel? Ist es bei ihnen möglich sich "vor Ort" die nötigen Komponenten anzusehen und auszuprobieren? Wenn "Ja", wo und zu welchen Öffnungszeiten ist das möglich? Vielen Dank für ihre Hilfe

Answer from the shopowner

Hallo, guten Tag. Ich versuche die Fragen der Reihe nach zu beantworten. Zuerst der Besuch. Sie dürfen gerne immer während der Öffnungszeiten kommen. Falls es Ihnen nicht reicht, werden wir auch einen Termin außerhalb der Öffnungszeiten finden. Stuttgart ( - und wir) sind immer eine Reise wert! Welcher Kopf? Arca-swiss unterscheidet nicht unbedingt nach verschiedenen Kamara – oder Objektivkombinationen. Arca-swiss unterscheidet in den Anwendungsbereichen. Wenn es sich um dynamische Objekte (Menschen, Tiere) handelt würde ich immer eine Kugel nehmen, bei statischen Objekten (Architektur, Landschaft, Stils etc.) würde ich Ihnen immer dazu raten die horizontale und die vertikale zu trennen., also einen 3 D Neiger zu verwenden. Bei einer Mischung von Original arca-swiss Produkten und Fremdfabrikaten bitte immer das System „classic“ nehmen. Ganz grundsätzlich wird Ihnen jeder Hersteller von Kameras (Nikon, Canon, Sony, Olympus usw. usw.) davon abraten Kameras mit montierten Objektiven am Körper in Bewegung zu transportieren. Je schwerer das Objektiv ist, desto schneller wird das Bajonett irreparabel defokussiert. Dieser Schaden ist irreparabel !
