The Leofoto LH-55SC is the big boy in the range and what would be considered an oversize model. It weighs a whopping 940g and is the ultimate ballhead in Leofoto’s range. While it offers great support, make sure that you don’t intend to travel or hike with your tripod as paired with a 40mm set of legs, you’ll be close to the 4kg mark when paired with the LH-55. This is the same as the LH-55, the only difference is the Dual Profile Picatinny/Arca Clamp.


  • Weight: 940g
  • Max Load: 25kg
  • Height: 98mm
  • Ball Diameter: 55mm
  • Base Diameter: 72mm
  • Plate Model: QP-70

Leofoto’s LH ballheads are the epitome of perfect, simplistic engineering.

Before we distributed Leofoto, we walked a long journey with many different tripod manufacturers and faulty heads were a part of daily life. Torn grip pads, broken pan bearings, jammed clamps, seized balls.. and the list goes on. We’ve sold well over 1000 LH ballheads in South Africa and we have only had 2 failures; a dream come true.

These heads feature a clamshell design, which ensures maximum locking force in relation to ball size and an ultra-simple design, which simply doesn’t break, even with years of abuse.

All LH heads are paired with the new LSC-50 dual format clamp, which accepts both Arca and Picatinny rails. It also allows adjustment of the clamp gauge by hand, which means no more searching for that missing allen key when changing between arca and picatinny.

A key feature of conventional ballheads is tension control. This allows you to apply a finely controlled soft-lock to the head, which means that the head will hold your optic/rifle, but can still be adjusted with a bit more force. The pan control also means you can control tilt and pan individually, which is a great feature when spotting.
