Got the K-20x about a year ago and enjoyed using it -- right up to when it broke. Let me be clear -- the fault was mine. I was loading my car, foolishly had my collapsed tripod leaning against the bumper when it slipped and hit the parking lot pavement.
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
I bought this to go with my Sirui tripod. I have not used it in the field yet but like the feel of it. Seems to be well built. I looked at other ball heads with similar specs and they were more expensive. I will update the review once I have used it.
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.
This is my first ball head. It is amazing.The friction for the ball movement is very smooth, as well as the panning mechanism; very sturdy and easy to manipulate.I am using it for photo (attached is a cropped sample) and video shots with a camera slider.
I bought this for travel and use it on a medium sized carbon fiber tripod with M43 equipment. The heaviest camera/lens combination I have used with this is a Panasonic GX8 with the Olympus 40-150 f/2.8 zoom and Olympus M14 1.4x converter, for which is was fine.
Robust, secure and smooth. I have only recently become familiar with Sirui. After several purchases I am very impressed. This and the K-30X are solid performers at a reasonable price.
It's a nice head but a little small. The plate is definitely small or at least smaller than what I was used too. Its a close fit and doesn't slide on as quickly as my old one, but I will get used it. Seems well made.
The head is mated to the Sirui w-1004 tripod as a back up lightweight tripod. when trying to change the camera to the portrait format I was unable to get a 90 degree transition when dropping the ball into the slot.
I recently purchased the K30X ball head (bigger brother of the K20x), to use on my heavier Induro tripod. My Sony A7Rii with the somewhat heavy 70-300mm lens moves very smoothly, without any jerking. The quick release safety catch works on the L-brackets too!
