I am very impressed that this ballhead cost as little as it did and performs as good as it does.
I have a 5D and tend to hang a lot of attachments on it; Strobe unit, remote trigger for studio lighting and a battery pack.All of this adds up to a fairly heavy package, about 4-5 lbs.The head held the the whole package in place without any problem.
The quick-release is the easiest I’ve ever used.I can put the camera on it almost as fast as I can remove it.It’s a thing of beauty.The safety lock is an excellent addition to prevent the camera from being accidentally released.
I am planning on getting more units to add to all of my tripods and monopods.
The quick release plate has a 1/4″ screw for all cameras. Additional QR plate available.Base has a 3/8″ screw thread for universal mounting to tripods and monopods. If your pod has a 1/4″ screw, we can provide step-up adapter to make it fit.
