I'm usually moving quickly from one spot to another, so I want to extend the monopod, click on the camera, shoot, unclick, collapse, and on my way. A ballhead lets me attach the camera and get my angle without having to think about where the foot of the monopod is sitting.
I've only had it for about two weeks but during that time I have had a lot of fun using it and glad it is solid and stable and reliable to use specially since the quick release plate and its respective locking mechanism are what hold the camera to the rest of the tripod.
ball head, fair price, very stable, easy to use
few minor (personal) quirks
It's Manfrotto, need I say more?
I use several of these, and like to have one on each unit, rather than having to move it from tripod to tripod, etc.
Very sturdy. It holds my 5D MarkIII very steady. Love the quality of Manfrotto heads.
So glad to get this ball head just in time for our night photography! It is made in Italy and not China made that the original tripod and ball head package came with. I lost a tiny piece of the old China-made when I dropped my tripod.
Easy to use and sturdy. Not for heavy lens. A little harder to use if you have a battery pack on your camera.
Got this for my monopod. Friction and locking controls work great. Smooth ball movement. But release for plate is frustrating and often requires two hands, leaving no way to properly hold the about-to-be-released camera.
You can really crank down on this one.
A full five stars - I'd give it a six if I could. I use it on my "Chickenfoot" monopod and it is a great combination. The weight is such that is keeps the "Chickenfoot" well balanced and it holds my Canon 6D with lens and battery grip without any issues.
