Solid Ball Head

j, B&H Photo
22 January 2014
  • Excerpt: For the price, I rate this 5 stars. Very solid, the torsion lever is able to be adjusted out and still leave varying levels of friction on the ball, i.e. it's not an "all or nothing." The quick release for the camera mount seems very secure. There are probably better heads out there, but none I've found at this price point. Especially none rated for the weight this head will carry.
  • Pros: Easy to Use

Just Ok

  • Excerpt: Not that thrilled with this head, but it could be because I am so used to a professional ball head. I was hoping that I could use it for panoramas, but it just does not function well for this use. It was a disappointing purchase.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability
  • Cons: Can Not Pan With It, Small Range

A Little Wobbly on a 1/4

7 July 2012
  • Excerpt: This ball head supports the 9 pounds of weight for my largest unit fine but I had to use a 3/8 to 1/4 inch bushing for my tripod and I find the unit is a bit wobbly for my liking. The quick release latches are not as smooth as I would like but the ball head adjustment and lock is good. The single bubble level is useful but not very accurate. I find myself using it in conjunction with the camera level for the best results.
  • Pros: Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp

Exactly what I've been looking for

  • Excerpt: I've been looking for a ball head with holding power and this one fits the bill. Previous models I've tried allowed my lenses to droop downward. Reasonably priced. It is a little bit on the heavy side but it is a small price to pay for security.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly
  • Cons: Heavy

  • Excerpt: I've been looking for a ball head with strong holding power, and this one fits the bill. Its reasonably priced too. Its a bit heavier than most similar priced units but none I've found can hold the weight like this one, so it's a small trade off
  • Pros: Good Stability

Strong Replacment Head

  • Excerpt: Needed a new head after my manfrotto joystick became too soft to hold the camera. Chose this one for its simplicity and weight rating. Works great.
