The panning base has a separate lock and is laser-engraved in 2.5-degree increments from 0-360 degrees for accurate repeatability.

    Really Right Stuff BH-30 reviews

    BH-30 Ball Head with Compact Lever-Release Clamp is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 11.
    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 Easy use it It is light, simply and easy use. I use it with Gitzo 1545t.

    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 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal Ballhead This head is very easy and quick to fasten the camera on the tripod. It's sturdy and light-weighted. I recommend it.
