Product Description

The Nomad Ballhead, can also function as a gimbal head just like the GP Ballhead.  But unlike the GP, the Nomad Ballhead will require a leveling base for stitched panoramic images. The Nomad Ballhead takes advantage of our latest manufacturing technology to bring you an unprecedented value in a professional tripod head.

All Acratech Ballheads are designed to be lightweight and rugged for the active outdoor photographer. The open structure lets moisture, dirt and debris fall through instead of being trapped inside a socket. 

Available only with our Arca Swiss style, knob quick release clamp. The locking lever is not available on the Nomad Ballhead.

Camera quick release plates sold separately.

  1. perfect for now 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Mar 2017

    I just received this head. It arrived fast and in perfect state in Belgium. It looks perfect, smartly designed and light, as explained on the videos. I didn't use it yet on a real shooting, but I don't see how it could go wrong.Combine it with a quick release plate adapted to your camera, for shooting vertically.

  2. Well manufactured and very sturdy 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Dec 2016

    I am really pleased with the Nomad ballhead. Easy to adjust and very user friendly. The only problem was that it is a far better piece of kit than my tripod, so I have bought a Gitzo 3 series to keep it and the D810 happy and rock solid.
    Many thanks to you Acratech guys for developing this fine product.
