        Comments about Slik SBH-200DQ Ballhead with Quick Release - Supports 8.8 lbs (5kg) - Black:

        I changed from using a pistil-grip ballhead for my heavy camera and lens (Sony A65 with Tamron 500mm zoom) because aiming and aligning the camera was cumbersome, and inaccurate. I found that releasing the trigger (to lock camera & lens) often resulted in a slight movement whereby the camera would be slightly mislaigned from the intended center of focus. Not so with the SBH-200DQ, which uses a single lever to move and lock the camera & lens. Couldn't be simpler: line up the camera & lens with one hand, move and lock in place with the other hand on the single lever. The grip is very strong and stable; this ball head is well designed and rugged.

          A good, sturdy ballhead with smooth acting clamp. The quick-release locks open, making it easy to insert camera instantly.

            This ball head is the most versatile, sturdy and ease of use attachment for our tripod we have come across. The quick release holds our heavy lenses perfectly when set at a vertical angle unlike our past 2 units. The 1 lever operation makes moving the camera and setting up the shot a breeze.

              I use these on my mono pods and they can be changed to the tripod which has the same type mount. It makes things much easier and quicker when doing a wedding, taking scenics or actions photos. I may orer more if I get another camersa. I use two cameras now but am looking to buy a third for backup.

                      The photo doesn't show the bubble levels but otherwise, it's just as described. It's better than what I expected and I'm very satisfied with its quality.

                        I bought this head to replace the one I had on it. It was a regular head with the long arm that always seemed to get in the way. So I looked up what ballheads are offered by Slik and I found this one. I loved that it has the levels on to tell you when you're straight. Extremely helpful!!!

                          The Ball Head is handy for still photography, but it is not damped, and thus tends not to be very useful for motion photography.

                          This is the second SLIK ballhead that I own. I bought this one to go with a new tripod, and I especially wanted on with a quick release mount (since my other ballhead doesn't have that feature). This device's operaton is fast, smooth, and easy. The quick release attaches and releases easily and quickly while still holding the camera securely. It has two bubble levels to aid in camera alignment.

                            Nicely constructed and slick ball head. Does not slip even with a large camera and lens. Does not have safety to prevent accidental release.
                            Price is very fair, Good product.

                              Comments about Slik SBH-200DQ Ballhead with Quick Release - Supports 8.8 lbs (5kg) - Black:

                              I have a Slik Pro 500 DX that came with a 3-way pan head. I thought it worked well...until I tried this ball head! I can't say enough about this terrific ball head. I've taken about 500 shots over the past several weeks with it and it is just so quick and easy to use. Yes, it was an additional cost to the Slik Pro 500 Dx since it already came with the 3-way pan head...but believe me, in the field it is worth every penny!
