The Slik SBH-280 DQ Professional Ballhead (Black) is made from finely machined and carefully anodized hardened aluminum parts that are designed to give many years of trouble-free smooth operation.

SBH series ballheads feature an easy to use, single knob operation to lock or release the ball connected to the camera plate. The knob is oversized and has a well-textured surface for a sure grip in any condition.

This version also includes the DQ quick release system. A feature of the Slik DQ system is the low-profile camera plate that will not interfere when mounted on vertical grips. The plate also has an extra wide camera lock wheel to make mounting and removing the plate a breeze.

      Comments about SBH-280 DQ Professional Ballhead - Grey:

      I recently bought a 300mm prime lens that was too heavy for my previous ballhead. This ballhead easily holds the weight of my big len and quickly adjusts to just about every angle I need. I have a very lightweight setup, and this ballhead isn't super light weight.

      Best Uses

        Comments about SBH-280 DQ Professional Ballhead - Black:

        I bought this product about two years ago. Well build, but the clamp is not too strong. A little impact broke it apart. I can't use it anymore. There is no replacement.
        Do not buy it if you planing to hit the track.
