I received this bullhead Friday evening and promptly mounted it atop my Sirui N-2204X Carbon tripod. I had a hiking trip planned for the next morning. At the trailhead (Ramsey's Cascade) I mounted my 5D lll with the 24-70 2.8 and tightened the adjustment knobs for no movement while hiking.
The Benro B-3 is well finished and pretty easy to work with. The ball action is good & smooth-as are the tension knobs. I am giving it a 4 star rating because, like many ( I have not tried all of them) these units do not seem to be as stable with a heavy load as the manufacturer claims.
I have only been using this head for a little over a month but it is outstanding. Very smooth and holds like a vice. Zero creep with my Sony 99M2 & 70 to 400mm lens. I have not seen any problem with the friction knob or ball lock knob coming loose.
I bought the Benro B3 to use with my EOS 550, weighty Tamron 24-70mm / Canon 75-300mm zoom lenses, Nissan Di 700 flash head and my 'pre-loved' Manfrotto Neotec tripod. To date, I have tested it on location inside Norwich Cathedral, for outdoor landscapes and also indoors for still life & macro work.
Compact, Easily Adjusted, Locks In Tight, Smooth Movement
This is my first bullhead. I bought it to hold a Nikon 200-500mm VR lens. It seems up to the task. It mounted without a hitch on an older tripod I already owned and the quick release plate works good.
Can't compare it to any others this being the first ballhead I have owned. It does the job well so far. Even supports my Nikon D810 with the Nikkor 200-500 f5.6 well.
very well made. the safety machism to prevent the PS60 plate coming off is incredible. i feel confident to keep my gears mounted on it and hold the tripod by leg over my shoulder and not worry about it falling off or loosening. It also adds additional 4 to tripod height.
This is a strong head, with a solid build. I like the safety interlock on the bracket release, which prevents the camera from fully releasing pre-maturely when you loosen the bracket.
Cant go wrong for the price.Holds a D800E and 70-200mm just fine.
Great ballhead for the price! I use it for landscape and real estate photography.
