This is the second leveling base I have bought. This is for a second tripod that I use. Great we’ll built and easy to use .
I bought this to go with the Panorama Head by Acratech and these two product are a match made in heaven. The quality is second to none, it's easy to use and the bubble is large and easy to see. The knob is large enough to be easy to turn and the bubble is large and placed in a position that makes it easy to see. Fantastic piece of gear.
Excellent, light and massive goes perfectly with my Acratech ultimate ball head.
An interest in panoramic photography led to a need for a good leveling base. Already having an Acratech ball head, I knew, correctly, that the quality of the leveling base would be the same as the ball head. I found that leveling a tripod is significantly more successful using this leveling base as the controls are easy to use and make for a quick and accurate process. It is now a permanent part of my panoramic kit.
Another high quality, highly engineered piece of equipment. Fulfills it’s mission with precision. Truly outstanding!
This is a beautifully machined piece of hardware that operates as well as it looks. The large bubble level allows for a more precise set and the locking knob is nice and large making it easy to securely lock the base in the desired position. The leveling base adds 2-iches to the total stack height on the tripod and if I could have one minor change it would be for a slightly lower profile. Not sure that could even be done while maintaining the excellent engineering design and operation of this base, however, and definitely not a reason to not add this base to your kit.
I should have bought the leveling base years ago! The silky-smooth operation of Acratech's leveling base makes tripod set-up a breeze. No more fiddling with tripod legs trying to make small adjustments. Solid construction and lock-up means set it once and it's good for the entire photo session until it's time to move the tripod to another location. The leveling base perfectly complements Acratech's tripod heads and works well with other brands' gimbals. Highly recommended.
I purchased the smaller leveling base to fit along with my RRS series 1 tripod and the Acratech Pano Head. These two items (leveling base and pano head) together are perfect for my traveling and hiking needs. And together make single row panos a breeze.
This really comes in handy when shooting outdoors. Many times the ground is uneven and it's a pain to adjust the tripod legs for small leveling adjustments. With this, you try to get close when you set up the tripod and then make the fine adjustments with the leveling base. It's quick and easy to use. I have two tripods and I keep one of these on each of them.
