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!

Neven, Adorama

  • 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

A Good, Sturdy piece of Gear

Jerry46, Adorama
12 May 2010
  • Excerpt: I currently usually use this to support a Nikon 70-200mm lens mounted to D90 body and mounted atop a Velbon Geopod 7 monopod. This head supports the body and lens combination effortlessly. <br /><br />Its action while panning is very smooth, and when the ball is locked down, it STAYS locked down. So far, I have detected zero creep.<br /><br />Each knob, large or small, operates smoothly, too, and each knob is easy to grip and turn.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, No Detected Creep, Strong Clamp

  • Excerpt: I use this fo my E-520 &amp; 50-500 lens on wildlife photography. I've tried several and this was by far the best for the money. It's uncomplicated, strong and holds the lens exactly where I point it.
