I purchased this for use on top of a monopod. I wouldn't recommend it if you are looking for "rock solid" with heavy gear but it works smooth and is adequate for average weight gear. I liked the quick connect mount a lot but I was confused about the quick connect and thought is was Arca-Swiss which it is NOT. I really liked it but [...] the mount was not compatible with my other Arca mounts.

    Comments about Benro BH0 Ball Head with Quick Release:

    I intended to use this ballhead on a light stand or monopod to support a field audio recorder. It's a bit big for the job, but still a good ballhead. It's very basic: no damping and no lube, but it is compact and very well designed. Benro may not have the cachet of Gitzo, but their products are very good and much less expensive.

              Comments about Benro BH0 Ball Head with Quick Release:

              This is my first time using Benro product and i must say that i am satisfied with its quality. First intention of use is for traveling. But after using it for quite some time, I regularly swap it with my 3-way-pan Manfrotto head beacause of its durability and compactness. The ball head holds my D700 along with my 24-70 & 70-200 2.8 without fail.

              Great head for hiking and super light traveling. Pocket size and not bad stability for the price and size. I wouldn't recommend it for any serious photography unless you go to remote locations and don't have any other choice for more stable gear.

                Comments about Benro BH0 Ball Head with Quick Release:

                This is my first experience with a ball head and overall I really love it. The one issue I've encountered is that it is easy to over-tighten the swivel on the tripod. I did this the very first time I used it. You need to take care to not over-tighten. Otherwise, it's great: holds the camera steady, attaches firmly and is easy to use.

                  I purchased the 2 stage BHO ballhead to go on my Benro Monopod. The quick release system works great and is very simple to use. I can switch from horizontal to vertical in a snap!

                    I purchased this for use on top of a monopod. I wouldn't recommend it if you are looking for "rock solid" with heavy gear but it works smooth and is adequate for average weight gear. I liked the quick connect mount a lot but I was confused about the quick connect and thought is was Arca-Swiss which it is NOT. I really liked it but [...] the mount was not compatible with my other Arca mounts.
