Put this ball head on my old Manfrotto tripod because of the ability to hold 33 lbs. With my 180 - 600mm lens it is rock stable! So far, I love this ball head.

If you're a professional photographer, you'll have at least $ of equipment in your hands at any given time. Why take a chance and purchase cheap equipment when you can easily invest $ on the 057 Ball Head and save yourself a headache.

I liked the stability of this head but I did not like that the lowest tension could not give it free wiggling room and was still rather tight. Mainly the plate locking mechanism with was uncomfortable to attach and moreso to remove the camera.

This is a very well made ball head that can handle large DSLR camera configurations. It's quite large, but easy to use (very easy to adjust drag). I can fully recommend this ball head without reservation.

Very well made and easy to use for positioning the camera; a bit of a heavy side but this is no problem for me as I use it in a studio environment. It provide a sense of security that your expensive camera/lens are not going anywhere, will definitely recommend to a friend.

I was searching for an upgrade of my ball head and I found this. I wanted something strong but at the same time, not as heavy.First I though this ball head would be kind of light and compact, and I was not expecting good quality out of it, although it is a manfrotto (the photos of the product make...

Got this ball head to mount on my big Tripod, B.H. is about 3 pounds by its self and it feels all of it. All actions are solid and smooth as expected. I have the lighter brother (the 055 model) for my Carbon tripod and it is almost exactly the same except for the very noticeable weight difference.
