I got this ball head to replace my aging Manfrotto 488 which has a loose panning lock. Sirui claims this head will support 55 pounds. I am running a D7000 with a Nikon af-s 300 f4 and this head will not stay put when carrying my camera over my shoulder and slips during shooting.
I will reserve a "10" for those heads costing 3x more. This seems as close to a 10 without costing like one. Can handle light or heavy loads and is a good match for the
light but solid, fine tension control, load bearing
none so far
Prfect balance of precision, finish and quality. Supports the D-850 and 200-500 without a sweat and without adding excessive weight.
The Sirui K-20X operates very smoothly and has great controls. I can adjust the movement of my camera + lens from locked to free wheeling with lots of control over the amount offriction in-between. This will even hold a FF DSLR w/ battery grip and 150-600mm lens without any creep.
This ball head is rated for 55 lbs. I loaded a Canon 80D camera, EF 24-70 F4 L lens with a Canon 300ex speedlite flash unit. Total load was just 3.7 lb. on the head. The tripod was a Manfrotto 190go.
This ball head does what it says it will do. I used it this week doing macro, with my camera extended on Oben focus rails as far as it would go (at least 10 to the end of the lens). There was absolutely no sag. I was able to do focus stacks that lined right up.
Ive only used it a few times, but each time I was in below-freezing temps (around 23 F). I love the tension on this head - performed admirably for me. Had no issues while trekking through the woods with the camera on the tripod, flung over my shoulder.
Great upgrade to my old head. Super stable and a fantastic fine tune feature. Handles 36lb set up with no problems.
Really happy to get it.
I previously purchased a K-40x ball head to use on a new full sized tripod. I was quite pleased with it and found it to be equivalent to the Arca Swiss B1 head I had been using for the last 25+ years. So when I got a new travel tripod I decided Id give the K-20x a try.
