Works great for stills or any other situation where you need can quickly position the camera in any way you'd like (landscape, portrait, dutch angle, etc), lock the head in place firmly and quickly and leave it alone till you need to need to reframe.

This is a GREAT ball head; wonderfully and simply designed (they go together no?) and beautifully finished. I use it on top of my Sirui P-326 monopod for greater flexibility than the one-axis head afforded me and it fits like a glove (the bottom of the head is aligned perfectly with the top of the...
