High performance professional ball head with the Markins tradition of superior craftsmanship

The elusive quest for rock-steady camera support has been turned inside out, again.

Smaller and lighter than the Markins Q20i and the Markins Q10i
The very slim and compact Q3T was designed tor use on Gitzo Traveler tripods and for other light tripod and monopod users who want a more slim profile package

It has:

  • A pan base almost the size of the ball head housing
  • The clamp knob is directly attached to the clamp
  • While retaining the same mechanical characteristics of the Q3 Emille
  • The highest load-to-weight efficiency ratio in its class
  • The amazing and unique Markins "sweet spot"

The Q3T comes with the Markins QR-48 Quick Knob Release shoe (clamp) attached.
This high quality quick release shoe is compatible with Kirk, Arca Swiss, RRS, Wimberley as well as all other industry standard dove tail plates, and has:

  • Captive knob.
  • Integrated bubble level
  • All corners and edges rounded to a super-finishing by a barreling method, so it won't damage your valuable other equipment.
  • A patented spring loaded stop pin preventing plates from accidentally sliding out with your gear.

Most plates for cameras and lenses are custom fit so they have to be ordered separately.
