    Really Right Stuff BH-30 reviews

    BH-30 Ball Head with Compact Lever-Release Clamp is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight yet solid I use the BH-30 with Gitzo 1555 and 2542L tripod legs. Just took the BH-30/1555 combo to Australia and New Zealand for a month of shooting and couldn't be happier. I used that combination to support a Nikon D810 with 16-35mm f4and 70-200mm f4nikon lenses. The pictures don't betray the slightest evidence of vibration despite moderate winds in some instances and exposures as long as 30 seconds. I really like the Lever-release clamp, which closes giving a positive feel that the camera and lens are secure when clamped in place. I shot some at night, and this gave me confidence the system was secure despite not being able to see it clearly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit with Gitzo Traveler Series 1 I opted to go with this ball head instead of the one that comes with the Gitzo Traveler Series 1 tripod I purchased. I'm very happy that I did. It is beautifully build, smooth as silk, and the quick release lever clamp is so much better than the knob-type clamp. I'd certainly recommend this setup for travel and hiking.�� It fully supports my Fuji XT-2 with the 100-400mm lens easily without slipping. It could probably support my Canon 7D with the Canon 100-400mm as well but I wouldn't recommend that much weight for this size ball head routinely.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy use it It is light, simply and easy use. I use it with Gitzo 1545t.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Great Stuff A gem of a ball head right out of the box. Smooth, well designed, light, and tight locking. It holds my Sony A7rii with Sony Zeiss 50mm 1.4/f rock solid. The large locking lever has a much needed feature in that it can be rotated into different positions to always clear the upper plate as needed. My only disappointment was that the ball head didn't come with a quick release plate. For the price, it seems like it should have been included. I ordered the Really Right Stuff B9 Multi-Use Bi-Directional Plate which works beautifully with the ball head.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great but certainly not the best I bought this to go along with a RRS travel tripod so I could be as lightweight as possible on an Iceland/Switzerland trip this summer. This certainly fits the lightweight bill and it is quite steady without creep when holding my Sony A7rii w/ 70-200 f/2.8. The only reason I would give it a 4/5 stars is that it feels much less stable than my BH-55 I use when not travelling. I reserve the right to change that if it does well on my big trip, but just from feel alone, it's certainly not as solidly built.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic piece of kit Like all Really Right Stuff hardware, this is the best of its kind, If you seek a smaller ball head and are willing to pay what it’s worth, look no further. If you’re only an occasional tripod user, this may be more than you need — but if your tripod is like a third arm, you’re soon going to wonder why every piece of camera kit you possess doesn’t measure up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Compact Quick Release Tripod Ball Head Very compact quick release tripod ball head. Fits nicely inside of folded travel tripod and is also small enough to use on a monopod. It's 15 lb. load capacity is strong enough to hold a DSLR with long lens attached. I would recommend and would buy again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The right stuff Smooth, solid (locks tight) and beautiful. Also seems robust and surprisingly light. I replaced my Gitzo travel� ballhead (GH1382TQD) because on the side/horizontal setting the Gitzo head was not smooth. This RRS is also more compact. Loving it so far.
