Product Highlights
  • Load Capacity: 8.8 lb
  • One Locking Lever for All Movement
  • Bubble Levels for All Axes
  • Quick-Release System with Safety Lock

The BA-108 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 head has a 90° notch which facilitates shooting in portrait orientation. One bull's eye and three tubular bubble levels ensure your camera is level on both the horizontal and vertical axes.

The included quick-release plate has a retractable video pin, and 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 a safety lock on the release lever prevents it from being accidentally released.

                Comments about Oben BA-108 Single Lever Ball Head:

                Bought this ball head to mount my DSLR onto my slider. I like the simplicity of its design; single lever that adjusts everything I need, lock it in place and I'm ready to shoot. It also has a quick-release feature that comes very handy. It has bubble levelers in every corner you might need it. It's mostly made of metal which I expect to last a long time. It is compact that makes it a breeze to install and fits easily in my bag. Everything is good about this product.

                      Updated my Bogen monopod to handle the new gear, just like the other tripod. It came with the step down screw adapter so I did not need to order it separately. Otherwise, just as ordered.

                        I have an older Bogen tripod & it works fine. The head has 4 different knobs to losen or tighten to make adjustments. So it takes time to set the shot. Wow, the customer rep who talked to me on the phone told me how easy it is to use a ball head & that I'm going to love how fast I can set up shots. He was right. If you are still using the reg. style head you owe it to get one to try out. If you don't like it just return it.(but I know you won't)

                        I really like this ball head. It purchased it to go on a monopod. It did come with the thread adapter to do this with. It is very functional and has smooth range of motion. The quick release is easy to use and it also locks in place very well.
