    Benro IB0 reviews

    IB0 Triple Action Ball Head is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid. Seems dependable I needed a ball head that could also pan and which was relatively light weight. This one fits the bill. The tension adjustments are sensitive and can be adjusted exactly as needed. It seems much better constructed than my Oben head and I am satisfied. Hopefully, it will hold u a long time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little head for still use This works really good for still photography. I purchased it to use on a video slider and it holds the camera in place while the slide is working but when moving the slider around I have to take the camera off as the head won't hold it in place. I say this so if you are shooting with a longer lens or a heavier setup and you are moving around with you tripod over you shoulder keep an eye on it. I think it is a great value for the cost.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cannot hold the camera/lens in place - it sags badly I use it with my Nikon D810 having a 24-70mm attached, the ball head sags really bad. I have to tighten both the friction and the main knobs real tight to prevent the gear from slipping. Its load capacity is rated 13.2 lb, what I have on it shouldn't be a problem but it apparently can't handle it, this maybe OK for a light point and shoot camera though.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Triple Action Ball Head Not the most expensive, but well designed and extremely functional. It handles my Nikon D750 and whatever lens I need. No sagging, easy to use, very happy with it. Will see how well it lasts, but I'm feeling good about it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light Travel Head The IB0 ball head is a good head for my light weight travel tripod, it is smooth operating and solid. I love the safety feature of the clamp, all arca screw clamps should come with this feature. Now that im older I hate carrying around alot of heavy gear so the 13 lb. rating is more than enough for my needs. I will be making the switch from heavy and clunky DSLRs to mirrorless soon and this head will be all i need. For the money this is a nice little ball head.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made but needs to be refined I use this small ball head for tabletop macro work with a Nikon D800, a RRS FOCUSSING RAIL, and a 105 mm Nikon macro lens. Unfortunately, when pointed downward the camera/rail begins to drift downward. However, the weight of the setup is well within the specifications of the ballhead. To prevent the drifting requires extreme tightening of the ballhead control, which works most of the time. The unit is otherwise well made and the controls work smoothly.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor quality control at benro I was confused when I received a second copy of this ball head with the same exact defect as the first, so I sent a picture to B&H customer support and they confirmed that it should not look the way it did. I returned my whole order. On the flip side I received excellent customer support!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect. I use this for my Fuji XT2 and it works so well that I put it on both my tripods. The weight of the head is just right, so that it doesn't make my lightweight portable or my larger tripod feel out of balance. The ball is held in place securely, so that the camera doesn't move after being positioned. And it's easy to move the plate in and out of the the bracket. The knob that tightens/loosens the bracket's jaws, is turned leftward to be loosened so that the plate can be slid sideways, but the jaws are not opened enough to let the plate fall out of the bracket. The user has to pull on the knob then give it another twist leftward to open the bracket's jaw the added amount required to get the plate out of the bracket. This give's the user a measure of confidence that repositioning the camera will not risk it falling off. Nice. The head comes with a bushing so that it can be used for both large and small threads (their measurements escape me :-o ) I would make two changes to the design though. I would make the knobs more aggressive so that it would be easier to tighten them with wet or slippery fingers or with fingers stiff from cold or age. And I would give the three knobs some distinct look or feel. There are three knobs, one to control the pan function (lowest knob), one knob to tighten the ball (the larger of the two upper knobs) and one to adjust the friction with which a loosen ball moves (smaller of the two upper knobs). Their similar look and touch makes it a bit confusing when trying to adjust the right one while simultaneously looking through the camera's viewfinder.
