New Cambo PCH Tripod Head

Cambo is pleased to announce the new PCH (Precision Controlled Head) tripod head to complement the Actus range of technical cameras and DSLR systems.


The PCH features tilt, swing and rotation just the same as a ball head however with the addition of precision gears for fine tuned tilt and swing. The precision geared movements are self locking and available in any position of the head.

As with other Cambo heads the top plate rotates 360 degrees, however the new PCH has a full 360 degree rotation at the base enabling precise nodal capture.

The PCH features a quick release top and includes a 1/4'' plate. This is the same QR plate that is supplied with the CBH-6, which has a safety lock preventing your camera loosening in the mount.

When the 1/4'' QR mount is removed you can attach the Cambo ACTUS camera and Wide RS camera system. This is an ARCA style mount, and is useful for quickly attaching your camera system, balancing the ACTUS on the head and how close/away you need to position the camera when shooting in the studio or setting up copy stand and macro shots.
