    Really Right Stuff BH-30 reviews

    BH-30 Ball Head with Full-Size Lever-Release Clamp is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just about perfect for my use. I've used at least a dozen different heads over the years and this one is by far the best I've ever used. I don't use excessively long lenses, and this model is more than secure for my use. The quick release and locking levers are perfect for me now that arthritic fingers make using screw knobs difficult. I would highly recommend this product, not inexpensive but well worth the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Do NOT think twice... buy this ball head Took this up for some astrophotography in the Northern Sierra Nevadas last weekend. This thing is simple to use in the dark, FIRM, no-creep hold in any position, and the clamp release is just a dream to use. And it's built SOLID. Buy this, and you will probably never need another ball head in your lifetime. It's that good... don't think twice, just buy it. As they say, buy mediocre quality twice, or buy the best quality once.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, smooth, effective Using this ball head with a Sony A7r ii and 90mm macro and it fits well together with lots of room for additional weight. �At this time the ball head is mounted on a Manfrotto MT055CXPRO3 and although the base of the BH-30 is quite a bit smaller than the base plate of the tripod, it all works well together. �It's really a pleasure to use the BH-30 - it exudes quality and workmanship.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy, compact, lightweight I was wondering if this head would be rigid and rugged enough, because it is so much smaller and lighter than full-sized heads. It is more than enough, and compliments a carbon flip-lock tripod perfectly. I would like to see a bubble level on the panning base (for panos and architecture), but those are available separately.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great craftsmanship! This exceeded my expectation as far as quality. Material and craftsmanship are exceptional and very compact design, holds my DSL just as advertised. This along with the RRS L bracket make a very fast and precise pair for my tripod.
