            Comments about Benro BH1 Ballhead with Quick Release:

            The hardest part about transitioning to this new ballhead on my 055XB was removing the old 804RC head .... what a bear! I found that a pipe wrench fixed that real quick - hooray for mechanical advantage!

            The BH1 is fast and easy to use, and the lack of protruding levers and handles is great when hiking - less snags.

            I always receive excellent products from B&H. This is the second one of these I have purchased and find it the most versatile ballhead I have ever used. Great product.

              Comments about Benro BH1 Ballhead with Quick Release:

              I have a number of Benro tripod and monopod heads and like 'em. The price is very reasonable, design, build quality and finish are very good, and the ballheads lock firmly and don't droop after you let go of the camera, even with a long lens and the camera in portrait orientation. There's a load limit, of course, but these perform better than many other ballheads of similar size and price. I particularly like the BH1 because the quick release plate is compatible with the DJ80 monopod head and the smaller BH0 ballhead that came with my Benro A1690 Travel Angel travel tripod, as well as Oben's QRA-R2 Quick Release Assembly (which I put on a flash bracket). One plate on my camera lets me quickly switch between my two tripods, my monopod, and a flash bracket.

                Comments about Benro BH1 Ballhead with Quick Release:

                I use the Benro BH1 Ballhead with my Benro 1980F 4-Section Aluminum Tripod. I love the snap in and quick release feature. I chose a ball head because I prefer to align my shot with one hand and lock in quickly, rather than turning 3 different knobs to get the camera on sight and level. This ballhead is working great for me.

                    Don't let the light weight fool you. This is a strong and sturdy ball head that locks solid. I actually mount a heavy painting easel onto the mount without any issues.
