SBH-250 Ball Head

Jason C., Newegg
16 July 2010
  • Summary: Note: you must remove the camera platform from the top of this (with the push of the quick release orange button) in order to properly attach the camera to the camera platform, then once the camera is attached, just slide the camera platform in place.
  • Pros: I was looking at tripods when I found the Alta Pro 263AT and read the recommendation to buy this for it. Seeing there is only the 250 and the 100 to chose from, I couldn't tell much difference so I just went with this because it has more and more is usually better and it wasn't that much more in cost. It rotates at base with degree measure, and can lock in place. Top has a ball head rotation with a neck cut for positioning camera directly up or directly down and has t...

Love this Ball Head

Knight S., Newegg
27 April 2010
  • Summary: we own a pro studio and shoot lots of weddings and location work. this head will get used and sometimes abused so we'll see how it holds up but from what i can tell so far it is a nice combination of quality, design and value!!! Really liking what i see from vanguard at this point!
  • Pros: Purchased this ball head with the Alta Pro 263AT - love them both. The ball head is solid and well designed and inluded an extra mounting plate and good instructions. Head feels smooth and secure with MarkII and L lenses. made in America, quality craftsmanship, nice style and thoughtful design!!!

Great Ballhead

THOMAS J GOWDYK, Amazon
7 November 2013
  • Summary: This is an excellent ball head for a tripod. It is very solidly made and easy to use. The only weak point is the documentation, which was very sparse to say the least. With the exception of the documentation, I would rate this an excellent buy and good value for the money. I currently use it on a Manfrotto monopod, but only because I am having trouble getting the SBH-100 off the Vanguard tripod. Once I do that I will swap the two.

parfait pour mes besoin.

JEROME C., DIGIT-PHOTO

  • Summary: Je cherchais une rotutule peu encombrante (pour le rangement rapide dans la housse du trepied sans faire de demontage ), pouvant supporter un boitier +grip et flash annulaire pour les randos et macro: cette rotule convient parfaitement. Tres appreciable la molette de maintien reglable de la rotule lorsqu elle est debloqué permettant ainsi un deplacement fluide pour la macro.

  • Summary: Qualité de fabrication au top, boutons réglage au "toucher" agréable. Les réglages sont d'une grande précision lors de l'utilisation d'une trépied. Produit livré avec 2 plateaux rapides QS-39, ce qui est un bon +. Concernant Digit-Photo, le service est au top.
