The FLM CB-43 is a ball head with a mounting platform and two locking knobs. One knob controls 360° panning and the other controls the friction and movement of the ball. The CB-43 has a maximum load capacity of 66.1 / 30 kg lb.
The FT model adds FLM's patented Tilt-Lock function PTF™ (Patented Tilt Function) which allows the user to lock the rotation and left and right tilt of the ball so it can only tilt up and down.
The FTR model includes the patented Tilt-Lock function and adds the 15° rotation knob. When engaged, the smooth panning base will click every 15° for easy panorama shots. The panning base can also be locked in place by pressing in on the 15° stop button at position 0 allowing you to tighten the ball head onto or remove it from the tripod quickly.
It can be mounted to a tripod, monopod or any other support with a 3/8"-16 male thread. A notch in the head allows the camera to tilt 90° to shoot in portrait orientation. A camera can be attached directly to the ball head, or a quick release system can be added to speed up camera attachment.
