            Comments about Benro B2 Double Action Ballhead:

            I needed to replace an old worn out head on my Bogen tripod. I looked at all of the top pro ball heads and stumbled on Benro who I had never heard of. I was skeptical about it being of from China but have bought excellent products from their, so I gave it a shot. A very well made versatile head for about half the price of the top named brands.

                Comments about Benro B2 Double Action Ballhead:

                I have Canon 6D with 24-105 f4 and 70-200 f4 lenses. After using pistol grip ball head tried Benro B2. It's very sturdy and does not move once the knobs are kept tight. I use it for mostly landscape photography where I do lot of pano and waterfalls. Steady tripod with smooth motion is a must and this ball head handles it very well. I have no problem tilting camera for portrait mode. With pistol grip it can't keep it in position.I bought the demo item at a lesser price and it looks brand new

                  Comments about Benro B2 Double Action Ballhead:

                  Bought to use on a tripod (carbon) that I have yet to purchase. I have it mounted temp. on another tripod. It is a good positive locking head. I have mounted on it an Induro GHBA gimbal head with plans to use with a 300mm f/2.8 lens. Currently testing with a 300mm f/4 lens. It is a good solid combination. Especially with the gimbal head set up. Smooth tracking.

                      I am a photo hobbyist and use the Benro B2 in combination with a Manfrotto CX190 tripod. The B2 is great, combining light weight with a high maximum load and readily evident product quality.
