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.

    It is a steal with a minor inconvenience

    I have a small travel tripod that I have been using on several recent overseas trips. The ball head was OK but is getting worse; so I was looking for a replacement because the legs are still perfectly fine. I was going to buy a small ballhead from brands such Induro or Sirui. After checking the prices, I took a step back. I started looking for cheaper options and there were several.This Pergear is near the bottom in terms of price but not the cheapest but has decent reviews. Given the low price, I placed an order. It was delivered yesterday and I immediately replaced the old ball head. The ball is larger than the old one and so the whole head is larger; however, interestingly, it does not change much the tripod folded dimensions.In terms of performance, I am more than satisfied especially at this low asking price. Because of the larger ball diameter, it is more secure than the old ball head ever was. Panning is just as smooth as my much more expensive Induro... 5/5 Photographer - See all my reviews Enthusiast: Photography Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    5/5 Kenny Ross - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Pergear Heavy Duty Photography Camera Tripod Ball Head 360 Degree Fluid Rotation Tripod Ballhead (Electronics) I received it today. It fits perfectly on my Neewer slider via the 1/4" to 3/8" convert screw adapter. The quality of it is very solid. It's able to support my Canon 80D. No problems at all. I recommend this for anyone looking for a quality ball head mount without breaking the bank., August 13, 2016

    Deflects and changes camera position as tightened, fails to serve intended purpose.

    A ballhead should allow you to smoothly adjust the camera in all angles when the knobs are loose, then clamp the camera firmly into the desired position when tightened. Of course different ballheads will support different equipment weight, so you do need to choose a model designed for your setup. In my case I'm using a Canon 70D with a variety of Canon, Tamron and Sigma lenses, no combination of which comes close to the Pergear's maximum 8kg weight specification.The problem with this ballhead is immediately apparent when you first mount and try adjusting the camera. When you want to adjust the camera position your choice is to loosen the main knob to the point that the camera is completely loose, or leave some tension on the main knob and wind up with gritty, jerky camera movement. Perhaps this can be forgiven in a ball head costing only $30. However, the fatal flaw is that when you try to tighten the main knob the entire ball flexes in the base causing the camera to... 1/5 Mark (Bump) (NJ) - See all my reviews Enthusiast: Photography Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Pro Review: Works great for my photo work in the field without spending big bucks or causing embarrassment

    I don't always use a tripod, but when I do, I usually need it to take portraits for a family with small children who don't want to look at the camera. Being a one-man-crew, I try to pop out from behind the lens and make them smile/laugh and look at the camera... which is impossible without a tripod. In addition to the above, I occasionally do some urban photography, residential and landscapes - but not too often. I already have a studio tripod, and while incredibly stable, it also weighs about 20lb and folds down to about 36" long. So bearing that in mind, here's my must haves:1) Needs to be light enough for me to carry all over creation without too much trouble ~ 4lb2) Needs to be tall enough for me (6ft 5in) to operate comfortably3) Needs to be sturdy enough to hold a large DSLR and long lens ~ 15lb load4) Needs to fold down to a relatively short length ~ 25"5) Needs to be stable enough to do longer exposures (2-3 sec) in real world... 5/5 Paul Tucker (KC, MO USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Fantastic sturdy ball head tripod for the price!

    I'm a nature photographer and I was previously using a cheapy $15-$20 Vivitar pan/tilt tripod in case I destroyed it venturing off the beaten path. The ball head is such an upgrade and for the price this little Dolica tripod does everything 10x better than my previous Vivitar!Pros:- Price. At only $20-$30 more for the unit, I feel comfortable taking this tripod out into the wild. I don't have to worry about scratching it, getting it dirty, or even losing it. It can be easily replaced if it is attacked by animals or whatever.- The ball head seems to hold heavier equipment nicely. I have a T5i and a 6D camera body, and the ball head has no problem holding the 6D with it's heaviest lens.- You can reveal little spikes on the bottom of the legs. Perfect to add more stability in rough areas that are uneven.- Nice travel bag- Locking pin on the attachment for the ball head. Even if you don't have the camera securely tightened to the ball head, there... 5/5 Kelso - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Almost perfect

    I love this tripod, which replaces an aluminum Bogen that I've had for years. The tripod sets up quickly, and unlike the experience of another reviewer, mine is perfectly level when the legs are at full extension. There were no flaws, no loose screws, and this is an unbelievably versatile tripod compared to what I had before. I use this for travel and hiking. It is a little on the heavier side than some of the other aluminum tripods on the market, but it is rock solid. It is extremely stable even with the center column fully extended. I love the degree markings on the head, perfect for stitching panoramic shots. The feet have metal spikes, but also rubber feet that will screw down over the spikes for indoor work. The only reason I titled this review "almost perfect" is that if the tripod had a removable handle for rotating the ball hand, for panning for example, it would be perfect. I spent a LOT of time researching all the tripods available in the market now (12/1/2011) and I found... 5/5 Sceaga - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
