    Comments about Vello Multi-Function Ball Head with Removable Bottom Shoe Mount, w/Umbrella Mount:

    In this small but versatile ball head Vello has produced another speed light shooter accessory that delivers. I have 4 of them I think, and they are a great grip tool for the speed light shooter.

    Great little ball head

    By Scott

    from Fresno

    Comments about Vello Multi-Function Ball Head with Removable Bottom Shoe Mount, w/Umbrella Mount:

    Decent quality and really nice shoe mount on the bottom. It's actually worth buying just for the shoe mount because of the single nut it's lighter and less finicky than others.

    Comments about Vello Multi-Function Ball Head with Removable Bottom Shoe Mount, w/Umbrella Mount:

    It is a decent value/quality ratio, but I would recommend paying a bit more for a better build quality. If the items you attach are not too heavy, it will do the job, but the more the heft the less reliable it becomes. When manipulating, you will immediately notice that it is not as sturdy of a build as lets say a Pearstone equivalent item.

    Comments about Vello Multi-Function Ball Head with Removable Bottom Shoe Mount, w/Umbrella Mount:

    This is just the thing to throw in your kit for extended function of camera
    gear. I do a lot of Audio as well and I can mount my field recorder on stand or
    my Camera with this mount.
