    It's a must have if you have for the SLR-Zoom tripod. It also works great just screwing it on to any regular tripod that didn't already have a ball head. My only complaint (why its 4 instead of 5 stars) is that you can't vary the tightness of the ball. Its either locked or completely loose. so when unscrewing the bolt, make sure you have a hand on your camera too. Having a tight, but not locked level of tightness would've been handy.

    Not as good as other ballheads

    The good thing about it is that it's small and it fits and looks well together with the Gorillapod. The quick release works fine too.
    The ball joint is what I don't quite like, when I loosened it, it was still "stuck" and I had to kinda force it to loosen up, hence it's hard to do any kinda fine tuning which I could do with my other ballheads.
    I used it with my Nikon F100 and light lenses like the 50mm/f1.4. I didn't try it with a heavier lens, as I think the Gorillapod may not be strong enough to hold heavier lens with that camera. This ballhead probably can handle it though.

        Documetary filmmaker: have several of these Joby ball heads for quick setup. The "V" plate design makes every quick connect! One way in one way out! A no brainer! The mounting plates are perminatly connected to my slider (both ends) 1/4'-20 to lightstands, Led lights for quick settings and position also 1/4"-20 lightstands, Zoom H6 with a maffer clamp mounted to my Benro Monopod. The Joby ballhead helps repostion the sound recorder the angle I need to visually monitor sound levels and at the sametime Monitor my DSLR.

                I was looking for a ball head for my Velbon Ultra Stick L50 that is light and locks down well. This one has the detachable clip so it works great when you need to setup quickly. I never use the level but it doesn't get in the way so it's no biggie that it is there. Solid, great quality

                  Small but solid and effective. Really appreciate the built in level. Combined with the the Gorillapod it makes a solid, portable tripod for my Sony A7.

                      I purchased the Joby Gorillapod SLR-Zoom Flexible Mini-Tripod on it's own and thought I could use it without the ballhead. It is feasible but way more practical and easy with this ballhead. I would definitely recommend this item.

                            If you have the gorillapod SLR Zoom you will need the ballhead. It has a quick release to attach and detach your camera. It means that you can position your camera easily and quickly. It seems strong enough for my Nikon D5100 with 18-55mm. The whole gorillapod is not as rock solid when I attach the 55-300mm lens but it's still good fun.

                              I have several of the BH1 Ballheads now and find them exceedingly useful for outdoor or action video work. You can add this head to any tripod and if filming on uneven surfaces (mountain terrain, snow, etc.), it allows you to level your camera easily and adjust the angle of your shot well. I've taken these to very dusty environments and still the ball head is smooth and locks down perfectly. A versatile tool that is worth the money.

                                I used with my Nikon 600. I can rotate around.
                                I have to be careful, need hold the cameras before you turn it.
                                It need add on the fending so I can fan around.

                                I am so amazed by how good this works for its price range! It is so easy and quick to adjust to the perfect angle, and easy to level. This head will not work for doing panning shots with video. It is perfect for still shots! I love it!

                                    This ballhead is necessary because putting a camera directly on the Gorillapod does not allow convenient pointing. The head works fine, and the level is an added plus.

                                      I use this head for mounting my SB-910 as remote flash and this works extremely well. The ball head is convenient for tilting and turning the flash head in all directions even if you use the commander mode to communicate with the flash.

                                          Meakes the Gorillapod so much better and easier to use. Bending the legs of the Gorillapod to get the right angle for the camera was a pain now it's a snap. You can also use it on a light stand or anything else with either a 1/4 or 3/8 screw.
