  • 1Description

The IB2 Triple Action Ball Head from Benro is an Arca-type compatible head with a load capacity of 22 lb. It stands 3.9" high, and weighs 14.5 oz. There are separate locks for both the ball movement and the 360° panning motion, as well as a friction control knob. A 90° notch makes it easy to switch to portrait orientation. The numbered scale on the head's base allows for easily repeatable pans, and a bull's eye bubble helps ensure they head is level with the horizon.

    Benro IB2 reviews

    IB2 Triple Action Ball Head is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best I bought this head and I loved it. I really liked that you can lock the movement of the ball head and adjust the friction level with two different knobs. I also liked that you can adjust the panning with a separate knob. I tried the ball head out and really did not like the release plate with a knob. I prefer the quick release plate to lock in place much easier and quicker than this one. If you like this ball head, buy it. As for me, I returned it and purchased another Benro ball head with a quick release plate.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for most cameras, but not Heavy ones I purchased this ball head with the intention of using it with my Cambo SC2 4x5 monorail camera. I chose a head with a 22lb rating because since the camera weighs less than 22lbs, I assumed it would be able to hold it. Unfortunately, this isn't the case. It is not able to hold position with the Cambo without slipping. It was clear within the first few moments of trying it that the camera severely overloaded this head. I'm not sure what the 22lb rating actually relates to, because I don't see how this head could possibly hold a 22lb camera in position. That being said... it IS an excellent ball head for those cameras that it is able to hold. And I will say that this is MOST of the usual cameras people have. It has no problem at all with my hefty Nikon D800 with a chunky lens attached. And it has no problem with a Zone VI wooden 4x5 field camera. The only camera in my collection that this head can't handle is the Cambo SC2, and that's too bad, but it's not enough to make me dissatisfied with the purchase. I can still use the Cambo with the matching Benro tripod legs (also rated at 22lb) with the head removed and it holds it just fine - just not as easy to maneuver into position. Overall, I'll say this is a very good head even if the weight rating is perhaps a bit misleading. I like the style of mounting plate; it feels very secure. I could walk around with the tripod slung over my shoulder with a wooden field camera mounted to it and the plate held it safely in place.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this again. Use for travel, either on a monopod or a compact tripod. The built quality is excellent. The movement is smooth and once locked, it is quite solid.
