The BA-106 Single Lever Ball Head from Oben is a simple ball head with one locking knob to control all motion. The knob allows you to unlock the ball so that you can quickly orient your camera properly, retighten the knob, and return to shooting. This enables fast setup changes, and frees you to keep a finger on the trigger while you're making a quick adjustment to the head's orientation.

The ball head has a 90° notch which facilitates shooting in portrait orientation. One bull's eye bubble level ensures your camera is level on both the horizontal and vertical axes.

The included quick-release plate attaches to your camera via its standard 1/4"-20 screw. With your camera attached to the quick-release plate, it easily snaps and locks into place on the ball head, and is quickly removed by pressing the locking lever.

    95% awesome

    Comments about Oben BA-106 Single Lever Ball Head:

    4 of 5 stars because on vertical shots the screw tends to slip a little. Some Teflon take fixes this. Very sturdy even with a large camera and lens. Super versatile and great functionality.

    Comments about Oben BA-106 Single Lever Ball Head:

    There is a springy little part where the camera adapter plate sits and it's little screw is loose. However, I bought this head to replace the pan-head on a light weight tripod of mine and it worked very well. Just be careful with it while the camera plate is off.
