Oben BA-106A overview

  • 1Description

The BA-106A Single Lever Ball Head from Oben is a simple ball head with one ratcheting 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 ball head has a 90° notch which facilitates shooting in portrait orientation. A bull's eye bubble level ensures your camera is level on both the horizontal and vertical axes.

The included quick-release plate 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 is quickly removed by pressing the locking lever. A safety lock on the lever prevents your QR plate and camera from accidental release.

    Oben BA-106A reviews

    BA-106A Single Lever Ball Head is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it, should have purchased years ago. Landscape and nature photography. Tripod is not always level, but the Ball Head solves the problem.
    Date published: 2015-09-27
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, not Great Wanted a ball head to mount on a Manfrotto monopod and their head with a quick release would not fit.  So I tried this Oben instead.  Fit well but it is not as stable as I had hoped it would be.  Really have to apply pressure to the locking lever to get the ball to stay in the position you want.  Need something a bit more heavy duty for my Canon 80D and 70-300 lens.  Also, the quick release mounting plate does not have a D ring on the attachment screw....requires a coin or flat head screw driver to attach to your camera or lens.  Plate itself is also small compared to others I have tried before.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems perfect Bought this for my new monopod that my husband got me for Christmas. The release is a bid odd from the one for my other tripod but it will work. There is a screw-style to tighten the plate to the bottom of my camera which I don't care for but it works. I just need to make sure it is tightened and aligned before attaching to the release so I think keeping something handy to make sure you can tighten it properly (fingernails don't do it) is a must. I'm anxious to try it out but so far, it looks like it will work just fine and serve its purpose.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little ball hea! I use this head to quickly set up flashes in my shots. Also able to prop up constant LED lighting ( small lights 8x10). I had borrowed this from a friend for kicks and now I own 2 for setups. One thing I do wish for is a little more reality space on the quick release plate. Price is well worth it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Head Very nice, small ball head. Does exactly what it is supposed to do, at a good price. Used to replace a broken head on an old Velbon mini tripod. Now it works better than ever. Female thread is 3/8-16, but it comes with a 1/4-20 reducer bushing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! Need it something small for tabletop photography and this is just great! Small enough and strong enough to withstand bigger body's and lenses, simply great!
    Date published: 2018-04-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I attached this to my tripod quickly and I have really enjoyed it right away. It is a very good product.
