      Comments about Benro BH2 Ballhead with Quick Release:

      For the price, I rate this 5 stars. Very solid, the torsion lever is able to be adjusted out and still leave varying levels of friction on the ball, i.e. it's not an "all or nothing." The quick release for the camera mount seems very secure. There are probably better heads out there, but none I've found at this price point. Especially none rated for the weight this head will carry.

        not much to say....very solid and great value for the money.
        the mechanisms and construction is solid all around.
        Also, lightweight so that's a plus

        Comments about Benro BH2 Ballhead with Quick Release:

        Not that thrilled with this head, but it could be because I am so used to a professional ball head. I was hoping that I could use it for panoramas, but it just does not function well for this use. It was a disappointing purchase.

        A Little Wobbly on a 1/4

          Comments about Benro BH2 Ballhead with Quick Release:

          This ball head supports the 9 pounds of weight for my largest unit fine but I had to use a 3/8 to 1/4 inch bushing for my tripod and I find the unit is a bit wobbly for my liking. The quick release latches are not as smooth as I would like but the ball head adjustment and lock is good. The single bubble level is useful but not very accurate. I find myself using it in conjunction with the camera level for the best results. The panning would be good if I didn't have the wobbling issue already described. I would recommend this unit with tripods with 3/8" bolts only to avoid the wobble issue. Otherwise, this is a nice unit for the price.

          Comments about Benro BH2 Ballhead with Quick Release:

          I've been looking for a ball head with holding power and this one fits the bill. Previous models I've tried allowed my lenses to droop downward. Reasonably priced. It is a little bit on the heavy side but it is a small price to pay for security.

          I've been looking for a ball head with strong holding power, and this one fits the bill. Its reasonably priced too. Its a bit heavier than most similar priced units but none I've found can hold the weight like this one, so it's a small trade off

            Needed a new head after my manfrotto joystick became too soft to hold the camera. Chose this one for its simplicity and weight rating. Works great.
