I use the BBH 100 ballhead with along with the ProGearMedia L Bracket...very stable camera support.My only desire is for quicker camera dismount. Also, as a safety feature I would to be able to unscrew the plate to loosen it, then pull back on the screw to remove the plate entirely.
Meets our needs completely.
I purchased this while Vanguard was running a $40 rebate so it fit my limited budget I had to spend on my smaller DX Nikon. The head does produce a tiny bit of creep sometimes while tightening down the levers. To me it's not a big deal for the price I paid. Locked down it's solid as rock.
I needed a ball head for my Kirk L-bracket that had an Arca Swiss plate. Looking through reviews and prices I chose this one and I am very happy with it. Just did a panorama up un Portland Maine this weekend and the stability and ease of use lived up to the hype and the description in the BH...
I recently purchased the BBH-100 to replace an earlier Vanguard SBH-100 that came with my tripod. I wanted the ability to utilize Arca-Swiss compatible plates and L brackets, and the BBH-100 gives me that option.
I use it in my professional work mainly for architecture pictures.It is strong, very compact and rapid to set in any position. I'm using it either with a Nikon D7100 and D800, both stay firm.The locking knob is a bit intrusive , could be shorter in my opinion.
After using Gitzo GH1780QR for 4 years and had to send it back once for repair, the same problem occured again, I decided to give Vanguard a try. The unit arrived and looked sturdy enough for my use but there are two problem:1. The quick release plate is not really quick release.
I use this with a Vanguard carbon fiber tripod and find it works perfectly. The clamps work easily and securely, and the centering feature also works as claimed. The centering assumes a flat surface so is useful mostly for urban or studio settings, but it is nice for shooting indoors, for example.
I picked up a used Benbo Trekker MKI tripod without head and started looking for a ball head. I was going to need something to hold a gripped 7D and 70-200 f2.8L.... not an easy task on the Benbo when set up in unusual positions!
I use this head on my Gitzo 1541 CF travel tripod. The BBH-100 is light, but very strong.Previously, I was using a small Linhof Universal Ballhead 1 on this tripod. The flaw with the Linhof was that the pan rotation lock screw is weak, and it compromises the stability of the entire setup.
