Questions? Ask our experts:

The Oben BD-0 Mini Ball Head is the perfect topper for a miniature or table-top tripod model. Constructed of aluminum, the BD-0 functions like most full-sized ball heads but features a supremely low-profile design. A single-action lever loosens the ball and allows it to move freely in all directions, and in addition, a groove allows it to tilt 90° in one direction.


The BD-0 head can serve as a replacement head for an Oben TT-100, TT-200, or TT-300 table-top tripod. Or it can allow you to properly orient your camera on any other tripod model, whether it has a 1/4"-20 or a 3/8"-16 stud – the head has a 3/8" thread and comes with a reducer bushing to make it compatible with the 1/4"-type stud.

    It is very companct, a high priority for me, because I have to carry the equipment.For when I change from landscape(horizontal) to portrait(vertical), the head was unable to hold my Nikon D5200 and Nkion 18-200mm lens in a locked position no matter how tight I cinch down the knob. So It will be in landscape(horizontal) only.Also the ball head tightening knob is too long to clear the metal wheel used to tighten my monopaod to my camera, so I had to remove the metal wheel which leaves enough clearance.Overall, I really didn't expect too much from this inexpensive and little ball head, it is a good value for me though.

        This head is really tiny and lightweight, but stronger than it looks and budget friendly. The action could be smoother when using with an actual camera/lens at the higher end of the support capacity.

                  Comments about Oben BD-0 Mini Ball Head:

                  This little ball head is a great addition to my Benro A100EXU. I'm using this set up with a m4/3 mirrorless camera so I cant comment on how well it'll hold up with a larger DSLR camera system. I'll be going to Eurooe in a few weeks and I wanted a lightweight, compact, verstaile tripod head to use with my current tripod and I didnt want to fiddle around with bulky quick release plates so I started looking for alternatives. This Oben BD-0 Mini ball head fit the bill perfectly. It is small, light, swivels 360 degrees as well as tilts 90 degrees, and best of all its inexpensive! It easily attaches to my tripod and doesnt add much weight to it. I also love the single action adjustment knob. I can quickly set up my camera onto the tripod by loosening/tighting one knob. Im actually thinking of ordering another one to use with my mefoto backpacker. I definitely reccomend this product to anyone wanting to use it with a small light weight travel tripod.

                    This was exactly what I was searching for. I actually have this mounted on my Manfrotto 693 tripod. It looks like a mini-me, but functions beautifully and fits in my Frotto bag along with my monopod.
                    Great price to boot.

                      I bought this for my slider for doing timelapse photography. This tiny little head supports my DSLR cameras without a problem for this. A real minimal head that gets the job done for very little money.

                      Just the right size for my Sony a6000 on a tabletop tripod. Smooth travel. Quick release-plunger makes adjustments quick & easy. Nice price, too. No down side.

                          It came with my small magnus tripod in set. So far it is good. The only thing is that the screw of the ball head is a bit close to the tripod so sometimes it isn't so easy to twist. I mean if you have big shovel type hands it can be challenging for you.

                                  I have a nice hiking stick with a camera screw under the grip but I can only use it as a monopod in landscape mode. This mini ball head is easily pocketable and allows me to stabilize the camera in portrait mode, too.

                                      I bought four of these to use with my SB-800 flash unites. These are perfect for using with the speedlights. They fit on the top of standard 1/4-20 stands because they come with the screw in adapter. Great for the price!

                                          I will often use a flash off camera and trigger it remotely. but sometimes using a light stand is not an option, so, I purchased this with a super clamp and it works well when a light stand is not feasible.

                                          It can hold a shoe mounted flash but I don't think I would want to test it with too much more weight.

                                              This is an inexpensive ballhead for light weight items. I use it for attaching an iPhone to a mini tripod with a Joby GripTight Mount. It's perfect. Exactly meets expectations.
