I have this ball head mounted on my travel tripod, so its small size was an important factor in the purchase. I've only used it on one trip, so I can't speak to long-term reliability, but it handled my mirrorless camera + long lens with ease.

Overall I'm verry please with this product. I can get my camera balenced with my DA 18-135 and shorter lenses. But when I use my 70-300 lens the image drops after I lock the head. It is necessary to aim slightly high, lock it and let the image drop to where I want it.

Bought to accomodate the weight of a D810 with an emphasis on light weight but overall strength & utility. I've used a B0 with a D300 & found a little slumping with telezooms (but hardly intolerable.) No issue with this head, the D810 & a 24-70 lens.

Landscape Photography. Seems to support the weight as advertise. No problem with ball in vertical shooting with heavy DSLR and Lens. Some problem getting the release plate tight enough to camera -camera can twist in vertical position if not as tight as you can make it.

This is a very sturdy easy to use ball head. I added it to my Vanguard tripod to take advantage of the same QR plates used on my Benro travel tripod.

I had to replace a head on my old tripod and this was exactly what I needed!!! It is so smooth and easy to use!!! I love it!!!

This is a very well built and easy to use ballhead. It provides a very steady platform even when shooting at very slow shutter speeds.

Replaced an old head with this Benro, and am happy with the results. Simple to use, and even supports my heavy lenses well.

For the money and size this is a great ballhead. It is extremely lightweight and compact and holds very well. The controls can be a little awkward but it is little so that is expected. The the tension knob spins too freely. Other than that no complaints.

The head is terribly over rated for heavy 26 pound loads. I wouldn't recommend this if you have a 300mm f2.8 lense and a Canon Digital EOS 50D to support.
