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. Also the ball is not perfectly spherical, so that rotation into the 90 degree slot needs slightly looser clamp, but this does not bother me.
  • Pros: Compact, Good Value
  • Cons: Over-simplified Design

Strong and cheap

  • 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. Is very strong, and very small. I use it on a Kirk arm to give better aim to the flash, and plan to incorporate a second one into a small tripod.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp

Useful!

  • 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. I think it would be dangerous for any kind of travel, with too much chance of loosening and falling off.<br /><br />Moreover once Adorama charged me for the advertised free shipping, the purchase seemed like a really bad deal.
  • Cons: Unstable, Weak Clamp

Functional, good value for light use

fotogato, Adorama
16 January 2012
  • Excerpt: I bought one, then ordered a second. One I use on Adorama's monopod; the second on a light stand. For light weight functions, I find it quite suitable. By light weight, I mean small point-and-shoot cameras or small binoculars. For the light stand, I use it with single bulb fixtures. I don't find it suitable for a DSLR, especially with a heavy lens.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion
