Counterbalance is achieved by means of a sliding top stage and a continuously-variable spring mechanism which allows the head to tilt through the full 120° tilt range in perfect balance, eliminating a considerable amount of physical effort required by the operator. In that the camera payload is perfectly balanced, it may be left at any angle, totally hands free, without engaging the tilt brake.
Though not a fluid head proper, the Vector 70 delivers the same function of smoothly conveying the camera package in a manner akin to heads filled with fluid, but with greater versatility. The Vinten LF (Lubricated Friction) drag system provides continuously variable, stiction-free drag where the torque is provided by a bearing assembly of dissimilar materials assisted with a specifically-engineered lubricant. Unique to this method of dampening, drag may be interrupted with whip pans or tilts at any point within the dampening range, then return to the normal resistance.
