The Atlas 40 and 50 fluid heads feature the Ronford Baker-patented counterbalance system.

The Atlas 40 Head can take cameras up to 35kg at 25 cm above the heads pivotal centre. It’s operated by a single control knob, from 0 – 100 %. The Atlas 40 Head incorporates the well proven Ronford-Baker fluid system, with 7 stages of fluid control on pan & tilt. Accompanied by a zero (free) positioning, the Atlas 40 head gives unprecedented smoothness & accuracy of control & balance under all situations.

On the Atlas 50 model, the Fluid/Drag power of the head has been increased by 50% compared to the Atlas 40 model. This results in the lowest fluid/drag power setting on the Atlas 50 (position 1) being an equivalent to the fluid/drag power setting on the Atlas 40 as 3.
