    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 For DSLR Camera Quick Release Plate (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

    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 Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Disappointed Updated to Extremely Pleased

    I bought this based on my previous experience with a previous purchase of the original version of this tripod. I have used it a lot for the last 3 years and when I did have a problem the company provided excellent customer service to try and resolve it. Having said all that I was extremely disappointed when I received this new model. So much so I did something I rarely do and returned it. It was missing a critical part for the safety latch on the quick release base plate. The center post could not be tightened properly. Several of rubber pieces on the leg tightening nuts were so loose that it made it almost impossible to tighten them. I have a very strong grip so if it was hard for me it would be impossible for some. The new design shortened the tripod with the center post lowered. The two piece center post was made longer so as to give it height. Standing the old tripod next to the new tripod the old one was actually slightly sturdier (less flex). Surprising given that old legs are... 5/5 Jay A. Billings - See all my reviews, March 14, 2016

This review is from: Ravelli Professional 65" Ball Head Camera Video Photo Tripod with Quick Release Plate and Carry Bag (Electronics) UPDATE:Customer service with this company is INCREDIBLE. I was contacted by the company and they went above and beyond all expectations to correct the situation. I will be buying from them again and recommend them to anyone. They stand behind their product and they want you to be happy with the purchase.The product appears very nice. I bought this based on other people's positive reviews of the product and the praise of the companies customer service.(Comes with a 10 year warranty). On arrival the product appears to be a bit flimsy. I'm not sure if I received an open box product but there were some noticable dings and dents on it... One of the screws was already stripped, i'll probably have to make modifications to make it more sturdy. Not really worth the hassle of returning it...Between 1-5 stars, i'm stuck in the middle.

    I love everything about this tripod EXCEPT the legs

    3/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Ravelli Professional 65" Ball Head Camera Video Photo Tripod with Quick Release Plate and Carry Bag (Electronics) I love everything about this tripod EXCEPT the legs.

    Panning Handle for Video: The handle allows for smooth panning for video. The handle replaces the photo panning lock knob for smoother panning. Reversible
    Monopod Option: All 3 legs are removable and each can be used as a monopod. Simply unscrew any one of the legs and the ball head from the tripod, then screw the ball head directly onto the top of the leg. The standard 3/8" adapter at the top of the legs allow other standard 3/8" tripod heads to fit as well.
    Center Column Height Reduction: The bottom part of the center column is removable. The center column is still reversible to achieve low angle shots, but is not necessary.
    Single Twist Leg Locks: Twist leg locks only require a single-handed 270° twist to open and a single-handed 270° twist to close. With one hand and a quick turn of the wrist, the tripod is ready.
    Legs: Allows the tripod to fold to a mere 18.5" without the head and 21" with the head, making it easy to carry and store when not in use.

    feature rich tripod!

    5/5 Krk161321 (IL, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Dolica AX620B100 62-Inch Proline Tripod and Ball Head (Camera) It is made out of aluminum. Light enough to carry around the whole day yet still very sturdy. The aluminum ball head actually performs well. Once you've got the desired angle and lock it in place, the camera will stay on that angle until you release the lock unlike my 20 usd tripod. Im using a d80 with 18-270mm lens attached. That's about 1.2kg weight. The tripod is rated by the manufacturer to handle up to 13 lbs of equipment. Other features are a quick release plate, 2 bubble levels ( one on the head and the other on the legs), user replaceable aluminum tripod head, a threaded weight hook and spiked feet. The tripod can also converted so you can take macro shots. The legs can be locked in position independent of one another. With all these features plus great performance, this tripod is a steal!One minor hiccup, the plastic on the leg clamps, while not cheap, isnt top of the line. But they get the job done so it a no issue for me Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 26, 2009

    Great Tripod for the Price

    If you're a professional photographer, go look at Manfrotto or some of the other high end brands. If you're an amateur photographer looking for a good tripod that won't cut into your lens budget, then look no further.The ball head is nice, but is sometimes a bit unwieldy, and difficult to set. Sometimes you have to crank down the tightening nut a lot to get it to stay. The snaps that extend the legs are plastic feel cheap, but what can you expect from such an inexpensive tripod?On the good side, you are getting a ball head tripod, with legs that can be extended past their typical angle. They also have nice padding on them which is great in the Northern climates when you have to work without gloves. The tips of the legs can be rotated to reveal spikes for difficult terrain, and there's two bubble levels: one on the legs of the tripod, and one on the actual ball head. There's also a compass, if you need that utility. Even with all that, you still get a pretty... 4/5 R. Kanzig - See all my reviews, April 12, 2009

    Excellent Tripod for the Money!

    PROSLooks very nice (not cheap).The ball head allows the camera to be tilted into many positions and angles. And it stays in place once it's secured (my camera weighs 10 oz.). And the head is made of metal (I saw some more expensive tripods at Best Buy with heads made of plastic) and can be removed.The tripod can be tilted to a full 90 degrees for portrait shots.It feels sturdy and stable, yet it's light enough to carry around.The legs extend by flipping a tab, instead of having to unscrew something. This makes extending and retracting the legs quick and easy.The legs adjust to three different angles (with the last angle, the legs are almost perpendicular to the center pole) and each leg can be adjusted individually to a different angle.The legs have retractable spiked feet for greater stability on softer ground.There's a hook at the end of the center pole for hanging a weight if more... 5/5 Karen - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Best of the Cheapy Ball Heads.

    NOTE: After using this a little longer, I have found it awkward with heavier or longer lenses. You kind of need to use two hands to tighten both knobs at once, and with heavier setups (I'm talking 3-4lbs heavy, not 10lbs heavy), you can't count on a lighter tension to hold things while you tighten both knobs. Also, I've found a glitch developed in one of the tightening knobs where as you're turning it it feels like it hits a bump where it gets tighter for a bit, then looser, then tight again. Not good. I'm probably going to try a different head.Original Revue:A Cheap Good Ball Head is a rare animal. Look at the reviews for almost any head <$100 (and most <$300) and you'll see them described as junk, useless, or "maybe I can use this to hold my flash."Features you would like in your Ball head and how this Bieke/Cowboy head stacks up:SOLID - won't drift with the weight of your gear (and won't drop your gear!).

I got an adapter to place this on my Gorillapod SLR zoom tripod and it works well. When the pan knob is all the way opened the pan works smooth. The ball head grinds a little and in certain spots when there is little tension on the pan knob. It holds solid with a GH4 and a 17mm Olympus lens attached. It comes with one quick release plate that has a D-ring Screw. Which is really nice. I would recommend this ballhead to anyone looking for a good budget ballhead.I hope this was helpful., December 7, 2014

I use it with a Manfrotto MM294A4 294 and a Canon 60d. I usually have a Canon 70-200 or a Tamron 70-300 attached to the 60d. It does work and is built well. The cost us much less than the name brands. I can't say if it is as good as the name brands as I don't own any of them. it works for what I wanted and I will also use it on my tripod once I get a thread adapter. This is larger than what is on my tripod. My monopod will accept either size threads. One small thing; the part that you turn to tighten the plate to the camera is a little finicky. What I am talking about is on the bottom of the plate. It is sometimes a little hard to fold down if you don't have fingernails, and sometimes it falls down and hits when you are trying to mount the plate on the rest of the ball head.
