        Comments about FLM CB-24E Ball Head with Mounting Platform:

        This is very compact, sturdy, and easy to use. The only downside I can find is that without a great deal of tightening pressure the camera (Leica M 240, not very heavy) will cause the head downward (gravity) to shift slightly when you let go of the camera. Perhaps with a lever style tightening knob instead of circular, you could get enough torque to prevent this. If you tried to move the ball, it is very sturdy, it's just that one little movement when you release the camera from your hands that it shifts, just a little.

          Attached to a table top tripod, it is strong enough to hold a SLR with F2.8 zoom lens.

            Very small but sturdy (I use it to support a Panosaurus with my Canon 7D attached)

            Great for portability and reducing weight and bulk.

            It is very difficult to achieve a good lock, very slippery knob and not very smooth. Comfortable with 1 Kg equipment.
