Three years in the making, the Really Right Stuff FH-7240 fluid head is a culmination of countless hours of research and testing. The FH-7240 combines class-leading performance, high quality, precision, ergonomics, fast setup, and smooth operation seamlessly into one product. We are confident this fluid head will become an industry standard.


The head is compatible with 100mm bowls, making it compatible with most popular cinema tripods. It can also be special-ordered with a Mitchell base adapter or a flat base with a 3/8-16 threaded socket (please call for details).


The FH-7240 load capacity is more than sufficient for the heaviest rigs common to the industry.The head can perform with a load of 27 lbs. at full articulation or up to 37 lbs. with reduced articulation. It has 7 damping settings and true sinusoidal counterbalancing.


With the pinch of your left hand, both the pan and tilt axes can be released. All damping and counterbalance adjustments are also done with your left hand. This leaves your right hand free to operate the telescoping control arm.
