worked great, for a while

  • Excerpt: This isn't strong enough for an SLR. Started to slip after a day of use. Probably just fine for a point-and-shoot.
  • Cons: Weak Clamp

Good, simple tool

Emptor, Adorama
5 June 2013
  • Excerpt: I got this for use on a monopod with Olympus PEN cameras. For most uses, I think that it will be quite good enough. Only real annoyance, as has been mentioned, is that loosening the ball allows the entire assemblage to rotate on the monopod. I disassembled it to see why. See photos.
  • Pros: Compact, Good Value
  • Cons: Over-simplified Design

Strong and cheap

the technopeasant, Adorama
29 January 2013
  • Excerpt: Will support absurdly heavy loads. Attaching is a bit awkward because when loosened, both ball (top) and socket (bottom) rotate independently, so you can't screw it onto a tripod, then loosen the ball and then easily screw that into camera base. But this is a minor complaint.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp

Useful!

Adorama
9 June 2012
  • Excerpt: I attached this nice little unit to my Sherlock hiking staff and put the knob back on top. I can remove the wooden knob and attach my camera in seconds and then use the 30x zoom with some assurance of a steady hold. Good price, good product.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Strong Clamp
  • Cons: Small Range

Mini ball head too small for min camera

Kailuan, Adorama
7 May 2012
  • Excerpt: The product always looks bigger in the picture. Once on top of my monopod, it became a tiny, fragile thing for mounting the camera. It swayed under the weight of an Olympus ps 1.
  • Cons: Unstable, Weak Clamp
