FEISOL CB-30D overview

  • 1Description

The CB-30D from FEISOL is a lightweight, aluminum ball head designed to support up to 18 lb while weighing just 0.6 lb. It features a 3/8"-16 bottom mounting thread for compatibility with most tripod legs and stands just 3.2" in height.

The head's quick release clamp utilizes the Arca-type standard which allows most Arca-type compatible plates to be mounted without interference. The clamp uses a twist-knob to lock the plate in place and also features a button-style safety lock to prevent plates from slipping off the head accidentally. Additionally, the CB-30D features an independent 360° panning base with separate pan lock and a friction control knob to adjust the head's movement speed and resistance.

    FEISOL CB-30D reviews

    CB-30D Ball Head is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have for mini tripod - outstanding quality! I purchased the Feisol mini tripod and noticed the CB-30D Ball Head was available to order as an add on. I needed a setup to use with an 80mm spotting scope for elevated platforms or vehicle surfaces so I orderd both the mini tripod and CB-30D Ball Head together. After receiving the units, I was very impressed with the quality of both, especially the CB-30D Ball Head. All adjustments knobs are perfectly machined and finished and the quality of operation is perfect! There is no slop in the adjustments and the CB-30D Ball Head and mini-tripod work exceptionally with my spotting scope and 35mm camera application. I highly recommend this combo!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small but sturdy ball head I purchased this to use with a mini-pod but it is so solid and such a nice size for my use I may purchase another one to replace the ball head on my full-size tripod. I shoot with a micro four-thirds mirrorless camera and it holds all of my lenses rock-solid, even my Panasonic 100-300 mm lens. I like the small size. My only slight negative is the knob for the quick release seems longer than necessary and makes the unit have a larger than necessary footprint' for fitting into a bag. I am guessing it is longer so that you don't mistake it for the ball head adjustment knob and accidentally loosen your lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pricey and worth it I have been a Nikon guy for decades, traveling extensively, and of course bringing my photo gear with me. It all works really really well. BUT, recently a pro friend of mine (I am an enlightened amateur) suggested I try his Panasonic Lumix GX8. Frankly I am blown away by the quality of micro4/3 mirrorless images, so bought the gear with some pro lenses, and now am happy as can be with what I consider Nikon's equal, and at half the weight and size (it all costs about the same). So here I am with this lightweight compact gear, about to go on another trip, and what to do about a tripod? Enter Feisol. I have the CB-30D ball head on their compact tripod, and it all seems the perfect complement to my new direction of traveling lighter with top quality gear.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice little ballhead, Feisol CB 30D Very nice little ballhead, bought this with the Feisol tabletop tripod, is a little pricey, but, you do get what you pay for. I have hooked my Nikon 7100 and 750 and using the 70-200 or the 300 F4, holds both of them, no creeping. Glad I did this, took a little of talking myself into it, but no regrets, very nice products, it's like they are married to each other.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most underrated ball head. I own the CB-30D and the CB-40D. I have also previously owned several more expensive ball heads that ended up not being a rugged as the reasonably priced Feisol's. Very smooth operation, they feel and operate like a well oiled machine. Highly recommended.
