Product Highlights

The CB-50DC Ballhead with QP-144750 Release Plate from Feisol inherits the two-locking-system design of previous Fiesol ballhead models, with the added feature of an outer layer of carbon--20g weight advantage, the feel of carbon (even in cold weather), and an attractive carbon-weave appearance. The dual-caliper design provides one system to lock the ballhead sphere, and a second to lock the base plate for even greater stability. This allows for the added capability of rotating the base plate while maintaining a locked sphere. The quick release system is Arca-Swiss compatible.

      Comments about FEISOL CB-50DC Ballhead with QP-144750 Release Plate:

      I was given a FEISOL Classic Tripod CT-3401 Rapid by a friend and needed to get a ball head for it. After researching a number of different brands and styles, I chose the Feisol CD-50DC. I wanted a carbon fiber one as I can't carry anything heavy due to health issues. However, I also wanted one that would hold up and be able to handle the weight of my equipment. I have a Nikon D300 with grip and the heaviest lens I own at present is the 70-300VR. This ball head is very secure and handles the combination beautifully. There is no creeping at all! I read some really fantastic reviews on this ball head. It is very well constructed and the locking mechanisms are solid. This ball head would serve you well. I am very pleased with this purchase and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this ball head to others!

              I use it with my 5d3/6d and 70-200 2.8 IS II, it does not slip at all. The arca swiss style release plate is very secure with safety lock.

                I have waited way too long to purchase an new ballhead with a quick release plate. The Feisol CB-50DC works perfectly with my Canon 5D Mark II.
                The controls and tension knobs are first rate, and I love this ballhead. I am using it on my Vanguard Actus tripod, and it is a great match. I would definitely recommend Feisol products.

                    I normally don't write reviews, but I was a little surprised nobody has written one on this ball head yet. I was a little reluctant to try the Feisol brand, especially when everyone is always raving about gitzo and arca-swiss. I can safely say this is a comparable high quality brand, and the support from the manufacturer is great as well. So the first thing you'll notice is this ball head is tricked out in carbon fiber, obviously. The weight savings is negligible but it looks killer. More importantly, operation is as smooth as a hot knife through butter! Very little creep when locking things down(negligible IMO), and once locked down it's as solid as a brick house. My only gripe is that the panning knob is a little hard to get at if your tripod has a large base. Most ball heads are like that, though. Overall I am very happy with this purchase and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for an arca-swiss style/quality ball head without breaking the bank. I attached a proper photo since the supplied one doesn't do it justice.
