28mm Ball heads have long been favoured on tripods as they make for a great all-rounder solution. Their versatility makes them a useful tool spanning many disciplines of photography. Apart from this usefulness, ball heads offer speed. Unlocking the ball allows freedom to adjust pan, tilt and rotation simultaneously.

At only 80mm high from base to mounting plate it can comfortably sit in a tripod with flipped up legs. It is lightweight at only 258 grams making the ball head easier to carry for extended periods of time. While it is extremely light and therefore portable, a ball size of 28mm is still strong enough to support an impressive load of up to 10kg. The high-quality materials mean you can quickly frame up and lock down your perfect shot with confidence, knowing your precious gear is securely supported.

The ball head is simple to use, perfect for when you’re required to frame up a shot quickly.

The twist locks provide precision and will not shift, which is perfect for long exposure photography. This ball head can lock up to a 10kg load, without compromising stability, which is far more than most camera setups weigh. The ball has a smooth fluid action ideal for fast paced photography. Adjusting the position of the ball head is simple and smooth. Winged twist knobs control the locking mechanism. Twist to unlock. Reposition. Twist in the opposite direction to lock.

The head has a very convenient, built-in spirit level that is ideal for quickly setting your camera perfectly horizontal when required. The base has a separate grippy knob to securely lock the heads panning axis, providing further control and stability to your shot setup. The panoramic base can be freely moved whilst the ball head is locked in place. A cut-out in the collar allow the ball’s stem to swivel down which allow the camera to shoot straight down or rotated to a portrait orientation. Because of its versatility, the ball head can be used for any type of photographic application, whether outdoors or in the studio.
