Nice ball head for tripod

Steve W., Adorama
24 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Changed the three way head for this one for more convenience.<br />I am using a Nikon D40, one of the smaller cameras.<br />Haven't had any problems with the head.<br />Though it is sometimes tricky to position the camera and the clamp when trying for a portrait frame.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fits Well

Smooth Articulation

Adorama
23 January 2012
  • Excerpt: When I nest the quick-release plate that automatically trips the cam lock, the camera is retained but with a little play. Further snugging the cam lock removes the play. Not sure if this is by design but it's not real a problem - especially for the price. Very smooth articulation for an inexpensive ball head.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fits Well, Improves Monopod function, Solid/Sturdy

Nice ball head

twokatmew, Adorama
17 May 2010
  • Excerpt: This is a very nice, inexpensive but sturdy ball head. I really like the quick release. I leave the plate on my camera all the time, as it's small and doesn't get in the way. I have this ball head on my Slik monopod as well as my table-top tripod. I use the bigger ball head (SBH-120DQ) on my full-size tripod.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable

Cheap &amp; Good

Adorama
16 February 2010
  • Excerpt: Got it to use on my Leki Walking stick that can double as a monopod. Supports my FZ35 well when I zoom the lens all out. Wish it has 3/8&quot; mounting, but for the price, its OK. Very lightweight compared to Manfrotto 482 ballhead on my table tripod. How reliable it is, time will tell.

Bargain hunters tripod converter

Adorama
10 January 2010
  • Excerpt: Let's say I'm frugal (&quot;cheap&quot; sounds so tacky), so this little ball head let me convert a really inexpensive (&lt;$20) video tripod into a fully functional light-weight still-photography tripod; video tripods don't let you change platform orientation. My Nikon D70 weighs 2.5#, so the ball-head's 3.5# limit is just fine. I highly recommend this ball head for other frugal photographers. The 1/4-20 female thread allows it to be adapted to any tripod..
