I often use a 500mm f/8 mirror ' lens and a light tripod for photographing animals and birds. The lens has no tripod socket, so I must fasten the camera itself to the tripod. If a ball head can hold this combo steady, I consider it a good ball head.

    Okay... But, Non-standard plate size.

    Here's the thing... Overall it's a cheap alternative and thus far seems to be okay with one flaw... It fits only the Arca Type plate that comes with it. I've tried other Arca type plates and the jaws just do not open far enough. Luckily I had the foresight to purchase a secondary base plate with the additional luck that they did not weld or loctite the base plate to the ball. So, I simply removed their base plate and replaced it with the one I'm including in the link and the problem was solved. However, I should not have had to do that. The vendor needs to resolve this problem and make the correction for the jaws to open wide enough to accept standard plates. Finally I'll mention I use the smaller mirrorless cameras so I'm not sure if this is up to the task for a heavier DSLR. ... 3/5 Michael VA (Norfolk, VA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Rebranded but a solid system

    5/5 dan - See all my reviews This review is from: Pergear Heavy Duty Photography Camera Tripod Ball Head 360 Degree Fluid Rotation Tripod Ballhead (Electronics) I've seen this exact same tripod system re-branded with so many different names but it really is a great system. Sturdy, easy to use, portable, and you can keep the mounting plate on your camera and use the loop to attach it to a Black Rapid Strap. The loop is super solid so no need to worry that it will snap off and drop your camera. It's also pretty compatible with most other systems out there like the Arca Swiss., December 30, 2014

    Buy a few of these instead of one expensive one.

    If a lot of people knew about this tripod, they wouldn't feel compelled to buy some of the more expensive ones. I do have a video tripod which cost a bit more to use DSLRS/Mirrorless cameras for video. It's very smooth for panning video because of it having the handle, etc. However, when it comes to just photography, (and even some video) I use this tripod. I have two of them. I like to make sure one is always in my trunk at all times. Here are the great things about it: Low price, therefore allowing you to have a spare one, leave in truck, or in another location. Lightweight, so not bad while hiking or getting landscapes. Good quick release plate. I also use this tripod for audio sometimes, for example with the Zoom H6 or H4n, which has a tripod thread. I use it for GoPro to get time lapses. Last but not least, the ball head. Most cheaper tripods don't come with the ball head. I like to shoot panorama's with the camera being vertical.

    Seemed nice (at first)

    1/5 SSS - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Dolica AX620B100 62-Inch Proline Tripod and Ball Head (Camera) I just sent mine back for refund. In the middle of my trip to the Grand Canyon one of the leg clamps snapped right off. I checked this out pretty good as soon as I received it and seem like a good tripod. Operated it a few times without difficulty. Easy to use. However when one of leg clamps breaks right off (the top most clamp on one of the leg extensions) right in the middle of your trip $&@/;#<£..... What more can I say. Broke off in the open position effectively making the tripod about a foot shorter. Beware any tripod with this style plastic clamp. Not nearly robust enough.

    Sturdy Ballhead that can hold my large shoulder rig.

    So far this tripod head has packed a big punch for the money and its size! The ball-head is not stiff and doesn't jerk at all while panning or tilting. I really enjoyed the adaptability of it as I experimented with all of its positions. And it has a really cool quick release plate system. The build quality of it is really sturdy and mostly metal - not too much plastic going on here. It was able to hold my heavy shoulder rig - a feat not accomplished by any other heads in this price range. And I like the look and feel of it too - the pictures don't do it justice. The only thing I would change - would be to extend the handle - I'm going to put a longer pan-handle on it - as I shoot a lot of video with my set-up. Overall, this tripod head by Noston is a really good deal for anyone who is looking for a heavy duty tripod head without spending the hefty prices associated with them.

    A well-built panoramic head.

    5/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Gemtune DH-55 Panoramic Ball Head with Indexing Rotator, With Quick Release Plate &Clamp. (Electronics) This head's quality​ is very good. All parts are solid. Rotation is a bit rough but feels ok for taking panoramas. On my item the marker seems to be unaligned with the ruler by 1mm (you can see it on photo), but this doesn't make any inconvenience, as rotation is working very well and precise. The clamp can be removed and used separately if needed. The ball head also comes with 1/4" to 3/8" adapter and a nice case. Considering the price it's a great choice for building a panoramic unit., June 5, 2016

    Perfect for what it is supposed to do

    Customer Video Review Length:: 9:16 MinsThe quality of the materials is wonderfull, i thought the ballhead would be so-so but actually it outperforms the tripod. The ballhead can handle the 11 pounds this combo claims but the tripod doenst at some angles/positions.The most important is to UNDERSTAND that if you buy this combo it doesnt mean that it will replace your regular (big) tripod. This tripod works wonderfull if you "hug" something with the legs. It also works great for macro... as you can check in my video. This tripod would have save me a lot of time asking strangers to take pictures of me and my girlfriend while traveling in Paris and Brussels.In my video you can see how it handles a Nikon D90 + Battery Grip with 2 batteries + 18-200mm VRII + SB600 flash. I also tested it with a heavier D300 + 70-300mm VR + SB600 flash.I am impressed with how this combo was able to keep everything thight hanging from a door and a tree branch.I didnt rate it... 4/5 Andres Cordon - See all my reviews, August 5, 2010

    WAS a great product until I damaged my camera and the legs broke off

    I'd like to start my review by saying that I had declared this the greatest camera accessory that I had purchased. Despite reading the bad reviews, I took the chance and bought it, keeping in mind the tips on how to minimize the "abuse" that the tripod might go through... but then two legs came off and my camera took a dive off of the "tight" mounting plate.For four days, I mounted the GorillaPod on trees, railings that overlooked mountains (Squamish, BC), bridges, and a bike. And for four days, the GorillaPod worked like a dream. It hung on solidly and there was not a bit of shake to speak of. The workflow was always the same: 1) Check the plate knob to make sure it was tight; 2) Carefully adjust the legs around the mounting point, being mindful of not applying too much stress at the point where the legs connect to the ballhead; 3) Adjusting the ballhead for the shot; 4) Carefully removing the legs from the mounting point, being mindful of not applying too... 1/5 MaJR - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Ballhead X - not too shabby

    I purchased the Joby Ballhead X and Gorrilapod Focus to replace a Gorillapod SLR Zoom/ballhead combo. The SLR Zoom was just not up to the task of supporting my Canon 50D with any of my lens. I was not about to risk my camera on that pod so it went back to the store and a different solution had to be found. I ordered the Joby Ballhead X and Gorillapod Focus and they are a night and day difference from the SLR Zoom combo.The Ballhead X is smooth in its repositioning and holds securely even when not fully tightened down. The pan base is a nice addition over the SLR Zoom ballhead and allows you to pan easily. This is not an option with the SLR Zoom ballhead. The included Arca-Swiss compatible mounting plate is aluminum and includes a flip out half ring on the mounting screw to tighten the plate securely to your camera. This is a big improvement over mounting screws that have a coin slot in the base.
