B&H # DABH5 Mfr # BH-5
No Longer Available

The Datavideo BH-05 is a ball head mounting solution for accessory mounting on camcorders. The camcorder should have a typical shoe mounting point while the accessory should have a 1/4-20 mounting point. The ball head will lock the accessory securely in place at the precise angle required for optimum use. This type of mounting bracket is commonly used for mounting a small LCD monitor on top a camcorder. Other accessories like small lights or a wireless audio receiver is also typically attached in this manner.

        High-quality and durable metal construction but the locking knob works itself loose very easily. You really have to wrench down on it to have confidence that it's going to stay in place.

          Comments about Datavideo BH-05 Ball Head Mounting Device:

          The intended use of this product is for mounting an external LCD monitor, but it would be suitable and handy for a number of uses. I haven't had a chance to use it much yet, but its all metal construction inspires faith that it will last. (I've had items with plastic handles that break, rendering the item pretty useless) The little hot shoe plate is removable so you can also mount the ball head on anything with a standard 1/4-20 mounting bolt. The gripping surface is not cork as pictured in the photo, but a grippy waffled rubber which is probably better than cork. This item is worth the difference in price from the cheaper models with plastic handles, though it is probably heavier.
