This is a usable ball head however it does not work well with long lenses. I've had it for several years and am now going to have to spend more $$ to get a head that does not drupe. It is very difficult to use with a my 70-300MM zoom lens. I can not get it to stay where I focus.
haven't used it too much yet, but appears that it is well made
I use this ball head on my U212 slik tripod and it works great! I have a 85-300mm lense on my DSLR Nikon camera and it holds all of it very well.
I have a Slik Pro 500DX that came with a pan tilt head, and while the tripod legs are excellent, I wasn't too crazy about the pan tilt head that came with it. I don't do anything in the way of shooting video so I decided to upgrade to a ballhead.
This is an easy to use quick release head with a good range of motion. It holds my 270 zoom lens securely and, it fit my 25 year old SLIK tripod base!
I have this atop a a Slik Pro 634CF and it works well. While it would be nice to have a tension knob as well as a locking knob, the single tension/locking knob does its job well.
I shoot a lot of "macro" photogaphy and I needed a good head that I could use on the Slik Pro 500DX tripod that I recently purchased while vacationing in the Philippines..... WOW!... I was more then pleasantly surprised when I received shipment of this ballhead,.. !!!
I have a really nice, older SLIK tripod. I like everything about it, except the old-fashioned, labor intensive head. It was so complicated to switch from horizontal to vertical and visa-versa that I just didn't use the tripod.
I needed a light tripod head to use when I travel but it needed to be able to support my camera and lenses, especially for vertical shots. I did some research and decided to purchase this head. I took it on a twelve day trip and used it every day. It worked like a charm.
You'd think it was more common to find a lightweight ballhead with level bubbles and a quick release plate, but it's not. Enter the SBH-280E. I have been using it for a few weeks now, and the build quality is great.
