Oben BA-111 Single Lever Ball Head

You Pay: $46.95
Product Highlights
  • Load Capacity: 11 lb
  • One Locking Lever for All Movement
  • Bubble Levels for All Axes
  • Quick-Release System with Safety Lock

The BA-111 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-111 Single Lever Ball Head:

          This is a great ball head for any dslr. my only complaint about it is that the ball and degree parts don't have separate tension nobs. also, this isn't really a complaint but the quick release is a little strange to use but it just takes time getting used to. However, this holds my camera beautifully and doesn't move at all. It goes great with my Slik 700dx tripod legs.

            Everything here is pretty self explanatory. The levels are quite useful in setting up a shot and the dial around the bottom is nice for giving you a number to work with in panorama shots.

                I purchased this to use on my "slider" for video using my Canon 5D Mk 2. Works great and is solidly built. I like the levels, they come in handy!

                Really nice ball head. Not too heavy, we'll balanced. Comes with tubular bubble levels. Unfortunately one of them was empty and had to return it back to B&H for an exchange. I also called Oben customer service for replacement bubble level but they referred me back to B&H. I really appreciated B&H that they responded so quickly. My replacement Oben BA-111 should be coming back to me any day now.

                    this ball head is light and holds the camera whereI put it without any problem.. the quick release is awkward to use. I have a Slik 700 Pro Dx tripod. I prefer a ball head to a pan and tilt head, but the Slik pan and tilt that came with the tripod had a better quick release.
