Low-Profile Ball Head with Duo-lever Clamp

The new GNN XB-44DL is the perfect balance between weight, load capacity, and super low-profile height. These ball head specs are unmatched. The GNN XB-44DL is ideal for weight conscious individuals who still require a full featured ball head. 

Sunwayfoto made the XB-44 even shorter by machining off the neck of the ball head. (creating the GNN series)

This reduces damaging stress/leverage to internal parts, increases stability, & still allows for 23 degrees of elevation adjustment. Approximately 48 degrees of vertical travel total.  


* This product requires the DP-60R/MARC QD plate or an equivalent Arca QD plate to allow a HOG or PIG Saddle to mount to the ballhead.


The Sunwayfoto GNN XB-44DL Low-Profile Ball Head with Duo-lever Clamp is based on XB-44 and replaced the Screw-Knob Clamp with DLC-50 Screw/Lever Combo Clamp.  The screw knob side is for adjusting the width of the clamp, and the lever side is for locking the clamp quickly.  The XB-44DL Low Profile Ball Head from Sunwayfoto is the smaller of two ball heads in the XB line of low profile ball heads from Sunwayfoto. It features a very low center of gravity, very high load capacity of 40Kg and improved ball head design for smoother movements when changing position. It includes the two-drop-notch design for camera orientation and weights only 494g.

Features include:
  • Locking System is located on the side of the ball instead of the bottom of the ballhead. Whole center of gravity  is lowered more than 15%;
  • Adopts geared  locking structure,  higher locking strength;
