You don’t have to stand on one leg or bend over backwards to get that perfectly composed shot. If you’ve got a tripod and the FlexTILT Head 2, your camera can do the bending for you! Edelkrone’s FlexTILT Head 2 is a small intermediate connector that sits between your camera and your tripod, giving your camera the stability of three legs, and the flexibility of two knees.
It’s a simple idea with powerful applications, really. The FlexTILT Head 2 comes with a CNC machined aluminum body and friction hinges that allow you to position your camera in multiple ways. You can lift the camera up, set it down, face it at any angle without messing with your tripod’s settings, or even face it downwards. The FlexTILT Head 2 supports a load of up to 5 kilograms, allowing you to work even with those big, heavy lenses. The friction hinges only work when you operate them (much like a laptop’s screen), and there’s even a spirit level as well as an angle-adjuster so you can tilt and even rotate the camera with relative ease. Moreover, the FlexTILT Head 2 even lets you swap your camera’s batteries without needing you to unscrew it off the tripod.
The FlexTILT Head 2 sort of opens a wide variety of possibilities. It can be used independently, as a makeshift stand, on a tripod, or even with dolly-sliders too, and is compatible with practically every camera that uses the traditional threaded mounting system.
