Fingertip control for "Sweet Spot" setting
You adjust the integral friction limit dial with a fingertip according to the weight of your gear. Now, the Progressive Friction Control (PFC) knob, using a unique triple bi-axial mechanism locks your heaviest equipment at a quarter of a turn if you feel you need to. This triple action sliding cam construction securely clamps the ball while still letting you easily slide your camera in any position. The limit dial prevents the friction control from turning loose beyond the safe point set, avoiding flops and drops

Few, robust controls make the system easy to work with and operation in gloves is not an issue, something important for the outdoor photographer. With the smooth panning base you track moving objects with ease and the pan index at the base helps panorama stitching.

Tough beauty
The hard anodized Q10i and Q20i ball heads are extremely resistant to scratching and have a beautiful, silky finishing. The heads come in one color: Black.

Self-cleaning
The compact ball heads Q10i and Q20i are self-cleaning, self-lubricating made out of ultra durable 7075-T6 Duraluminum and are virtually maintenance free.

Compatible connection plate system
The Markins quick shoe connection plate system is compatible with Arca Swiss, Foba, RRS and Kirk. Plates for most camera manufacturers and tele-lenses such as Nikon, Canon, Minolta, Hasselblad and Mamiya and generic plates for other systems are available.
