Fair Condition - Vinten Mk-3A tripod head
Vinten Mk-3A tripod head heavy duty
Equipment DetailsThe head is in full working condition, all knobs and controls work fine. It's in need of a little bit of oiling, though.
Physically, the unit is quite dusty in the hard to reach places, and shows signs of usual wear and age. (Scratches, scuffs, dings) The fabric strap is still in decent shape despite the age.
High res photos are available on the Model's page under the brochure.
Model DetailsThe Vinten Mk 3 Pan & Tilt head used risers and cams to maintain the centre of gravity. This made the tilting of heavy cameras considerably easier and if correctly mounted a camera could be left at any tilt angle without lock off. The design (by William Vinten's son Bill) was highly innovative for the time.

Additional Detailed Information:
The difference with the Mk 3A (3717) is that the Mk 3A boasts improved friction controls for the pan and tilt movements, and the tilt friction control is now mounted on the right side of the head. The Pan friction adjustment has now been adjusted to be situated at the rear of the unit, facing the operator.
