The Slik Professional SBH-550 Ballhead is an exceptionally finely machined ballhead. Its hardened aluminum parts are carefully anodized, and it is designed to provide many years of trouble free, smooth operation.

These ballheads feature an easy to use, single knob operation to lock or release the ball connected to the camera plate. The knob is oversized and has a well-textured surface for a sure grip in any condition.

The base of the head can turn on its base, and has easy-to-read degree markings for panoramic photography.
