It can be mounted directly to a DSLR or camcorder's shoe mount, and allows for the attachment of a full array of video accessories. Used to attach monitors or small lights to your camera while shooting video, this ball head has a single locking knob for fast and safe operation, and is easily removable. Alternatively, this head can also be used directly on a light stand or bracket in combination with an umbrella.

A groove for the ball head allows up to 90° of vertical articulation with a single adjustment knob for safe and easy operation. The 3/8" thread on the bottom, with a supplied 1/4"-20 bushing, will fit most light stands.

        Great little ball head

        By Scott

        from Fresno

        Comments about Vello Multi-Function Ball Head with Removable Bottom Shoe Mount, w/Umbrella Mount:

        Decent quality and really nice shoe mount on the bottom. It's actually worth buying just for the shoe mount because of the single nut it's lighter and less finicky than others.

        Comments about Vello Multi-Function Ball Head with Removable Bottom Shoe Mount, w/Umbrella Mount:

        It is a decent value/quality ratio, but I would recommend paying a bit more for a better build quality. If the items you attach are not too heavy, it will do the job, but the more the heft the less reliable it becomes. When manipulating, you will immediately notice that it is not as sturdy of a build as lets say a Pearstone equivalent item.

        This is just the thing to throw in your kit for extended function of camera
        gear. I do a lot of Audio as well and I can mount my field recorder on stand or
        my Camera with this mount.
