Excerpt: I needed to replace an old worn out head on my Bogen tripod. I looked at all of the top pro ball heads and stumbled on Benro who I had never heard of. I was skeptical about it being of from China but have bought excellent products from their, so I gave it a shot.
Excerpt: I have Canon 6D with 24-105 f4 and 70-200 f4 lenses. After using pistol grip ball head tried Benro B2. It's very sturdy and does not move once the knobs are kept tight. I use it for mostly landscape photography where I do lot of pano and waterfalls.
Excerpt: Bought to use on a tripod (carbon) that I have yet to purchase. I have it mounted temp. on another tripod. It is a good positive locking head. I have mounted on it an Induro GHBA gimbal head with plans to use with a 300mm f/2.8 lens. Currently testing with a 300mm f/4 lens.
Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Solid lockup- secure
