Product Highlights

  • Separate Panning Lock
  • Bubble Levels

The BE-108T Ball Head from Oben is a lightweight aluminum ball head that features an Arca-type compatible quick-release system. It has a large locking knob to control the movement of the ball, and a separate knob for the 360° panning movement.

The BE-108T's multiple knobs enable higher-precision adjustments to the head than are possible with single-lever heads. Taking panoramic photos is simple, for instance, because you can pan a specific number of degrees while keeping the head's tilt position locked. In fact, the BE-108T features degree markings around its circumference to aid in that task.

This travel ball head has a trim profile, making it ideal for compact travel tripods that have reversible folding legs. A notch in the ball head allows you to quickly change between portrait and landscape orientation.

The included quick-release plate attaches to your camera via its standard 1/4"-20 screw, and is secured in place with an Arca-type clamp. A locking knob controls the opening and closing of the aluminum clamp simply and reliably. Two safety screws on the bottom of the plate help prevent your camera from accidentally being released when adjusting the plate fore and aft. One bubble level on the clamp, and another on the locking knob, both ensure that your camera will be level with the horizon.

      Good ball head, quirky QR-10 Arca plate

          Comments about Oben BE-108T Ball Head:

          The head works fine, and has pan control knob not seen in product photo. Bought this to replace ball head on a MeFoto DayTrip tripod that has nonstandard mini-Arca plate (32mm, not 37mm). The Oben BE-108T knobs have a little too fine of a texture for gripping, but still ok. The QR-10 Arca plate is a problem because the 1/4"-20 screw requires an Allen wrench to tighten, it has no screw slot for a coin, so is useless in the field without Allen wrench. Accordingly, I am replacing QR-10 plate with Induro PU-50 or PU-60 Arca plates.
