Worth the Buy

WildBill3081, Adorama

  • Excerpt: I bought this for a monopod. It works really well. The action is smooth, and the dials have great feel to them. The quick connects are solid as well. What I like is that it came with two quick connects, so I can always keep one on the grip, and one on the tele. Makes switching things out easier.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability

Best Purchase for my Tri-Pod

  • Excerpt: I purchased a tripod from a company, which had the traditional head, it broke at the point where the pan adjustment was. Any way. I did like the tripod so I saw the ad at Adorama, purchased this head and have liked it ever since. Glad I bought it.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Ease of Use, Good Stability, Strong Clamp

Super holding!

  • Excerpt: I have other Vangaurd ballheads on my Monopod and steel tripod. They work good for the use the get but weren't quite sturdy enough for long exposures or downward angles with my Canon 7d and L lenses. This is a perfect upgrade! I have this on my Carbon Fiber tripod for hiking. It uses the same quick release plate as the smaller models so i can leave everything on camera for both heads. But this head is so much stronger and has no drift when locked!

Looks and Functions Great

GENE, Adorama

  • Excerpt: I like the smooth action and ease of control. I can pan because of the smooth action. Does not sag when locked down. Controls are well placed, precise, and easy to use. You can set the free play tension for any weight camera. Clear easy to read degree markings for panoramic. Comes with two quick mount plates, one for camera and one for lens collar. Build quality instills confidence that equipment will be safe. Topping things off the SBH-250 is pleasing to the eye.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Easy to control, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Nice quick release, Smooth action, Strong Clamp

SBH-250 Ball Head

Jason C., Newegg
16 July 2010
  • 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...
