Sirui K-20x

High-qual­ity ball head that can take a se­ri­ous load

We’re just start­ing to see what Sirui’s prod­uct range has to of­fer, and this mid-range ball head demon­strates that this is a company that is tak­ing the de­sign and qual­ity of its prod­ucts se­ri­ously. The K-20x has a max­i­mum load of 25kg (enough to hold a Nikon D750 with 70-200mm f/2.8 eas­ily), and the sim­ple de­sign has no out­wardly fussy switches or di­als that over­com­pli­cate its use out in the field. The per­for­mance is solid, with the knob on the side en­abling the adjustment of the an­gle and po­si­tion of the head. Fric­tion can then be ad­justed with a small dial on the end of the knob. The base plate is of the Arca-Swiss type, giv­ing good com­pat­i­bil­ity with other ac­ces­sories, and has two built-in spirit lev­els to en­sure easy lev­el­ling. A quick­re­lease but­ton makes re­mov­ing the cam­era easy once the plate is re­leased. The base also has 360-de­gree mark­ings for aid­ing panoramic shoots.
