The CB-58FTR is FLM's largest ball head, built to accept both a horizontal and vertical load of
up to 130 lbs. It weighs well under 2 lbs thanks to its hollow CNC-machined ball. Photographers
requiring extra precision will enjoy the tilt lock feature, allowing one to lock the side-to-side movement
of the ball head, at any angle, and permitting only front-to-back movement of the ball. Panoramic
shooting and stitching is easily done using the PRS knob for precise audible and tactile clicks at every 15˚ when panning. The Friction Memory Ring will lock the friction at a pre-set value, enabling the photographer to tighten the ball head further, but not loosen it any further, until the Memory Ring is dis-engaged, preventing any mishaps when attaching or removing the camera to and from the ball head.
