In short I love this ball head and totally recommend it.I previously have owned the Benro VE-1 ball head which is also a sturdy ball head but I was having issues with the friction control screw which was very easy to turn even when I was not intended to and thus changing the friction of ball head.
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
First is the lightness- Second is the ease of set up and third is how well the nobes work you don't have touse force to close them .I Have used more costly heads and heaver heads they worked but at a cost in more weight and longer lock up time.
I had a small Sirui ball head & quick release plate with my ultralight Sirui tripod. I replaced the ball head on my large tripod with this in order to have a compatible mounting system & the ease of a quick release plate.
This is exactly as stated, perfectly machined, not sure about the rubber collar staying in place over the long haul, but so far works wonderfully.
Good quality and smooth turning knobs. Easy to install and use. having the levels is always a plus. I would definitely buy it again.
Is perfect for my d750. A little heavy
The ball head worked great when I first received it several years ago. I used it occasionally. When I put it on my monopod, the ball was very difficult to move. I adjusted the tension screw all the way out to release all tension.
After many years of using Manfrotto Head I made the switch to Arca Swiss style plate. I went with the Sirui from all the reviews and price. Out of the box I found that it moves a lot smother than the Manfrotto. The tension adjustment was a little tough getting used to.
Solid ball head. Smooth movements and very stable. Use it with a Canon 5D with 70-200 2.8, extremely steady with no drift.
