Really Right Stuff BH-55 overview

  • 1Description

The BH-55 Ball Head with Screw-Knob Panning Clamp from Really Right Stuff is a 2.3 lb ball head that will support large camera/long lens combinations weighing up to 50 lb. Crafted from aluminum and stainless steel, the BH-55 has all of the features you'd expect from a professional-level head. An over-sized, ergonomic locking knob allows 45-degree tilting in all directions and dual 90-degree drop-notches facilitate quick and accurate switching from the horizontal landscape position to vertical portrait orientation. A separate tension knob is provided to apply the appropriate pressure that safely corresponds to the weight of your camera. A third knob loosens and locks the panning base which is laser-engraved with markers every 2.5 degrees from 0 to 360 degrees. This version of the head has a special panning quick release with a bubble level and markings to 360 degrees making it ideal for panoramas.

    Really Right Stuff BH-55 reviews

    BH-55 Ball Head with Screw-Knob Panning Clamp is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality You can see and feel the quality as soon as you open the package and in use it is amazing. The holding strength with the ball at an angle is very impressive and has never let me down. There is virtually no slippage which is critical on long exposures. Superb engineered Tripod head and the best I have ever purchased and out in the field it is not only very easy to use but precise in making adjustments and handles my large lens (Nikon 300 F2.8 with TC1.4x extender) with absolute ease.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Right stuff is what it says. This is just a phenomenal product. Quality that is rare these days. I have found the feature to put some pre tension into the ball head to stop your camera from flopping around to be a very good. It is easy and lightning fast to acquire a level camera like no other tripod head I have ever use. It is also silky smooth and the over size position locking knob is perfect. I was told that the weight of it would be and issue, I don't agree. I hike with mine and fined really no issue. To have this stunning level of quality you will get some weight. What ever extra weight you carry it is totally out stripped by the function and performance of this state of the art tripod head. I could not be happier with my purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would buy again Heavy duty. The ball locks tight easily, but when unlocking it sometimes feels sticky for lack of a better word. would buy again as I like it better than my acratech. the quality of construction is certainly top notch. lastly the design for the main locking knob i thought was odd but having used it i quiet like it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from If it would break in my life (I doubt it), I'd buy another 1 It's been a long time since I want to try this bad boy and my oh my does this purchase is worth it. Solid, well constructed, easy to use, do NOT need any tool or allen key, works like a charp on either my slider, my tripod or my monopod. It's RAD!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Satisfied customer I purchased this product for landscape and wildlife photography. I have used very heavy lenses without any shaking. I would highly recommend to anyone with the money.
