Really Right Stuff BH-25 overview

  • 1Description

The BH-25 Ball Head with Lever-Release Clamp from Really Right Stuff is an Arca-compatible, single action tripod head that represents the smallest and lightest ball head offering in the RRS line-up.

Despite the BH-25's small stature it's an impressively capable support, able to hold up to 8.8 lb, while standing just 2.6" tall and weighing a negligible 7.8 oz. The single action design of the head allows the user to unlock the 360° pan and the ball at the same time, facilitating completely free movement in any direction and locking in any position. The T-style lever lock assists the user when locking and unlocking the ball head by providing a large grip for maximum leverage. The T-style handle is also set on a spring loaded ratcheting joint, which allows the user to rotate the handle, freeing it of obstruction caused by large tripod baseplates.

On the technical side, the BH-25 features a few classic additions that make the head almost universally compatible and customizable. The bottom of the head features a standard 3/8"-16 mount for wide compatibility with most tripod legs, while the connecting stem features a standard 1/4"-20 thread that makes swapping quick release clamps as simple as possible. Also, to save weight, the 0.9" ball uses a hollow design, which maintains strength while adding to the BH-25's lightweight design.

    Really Right Stuff BH-25 reviews

    BH-25 Ball Head with Lever-Release Clamp is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for most purposes Just what I needed for an ultralight ball head for long distance hikes in the mountains. It's even smaller & lighter than It looked online. Light but it easily supports my X-T2 with 50-140 2.8 lens attached. I would recommend an L bracket for shooting in portrait mode though. It's important to know that you can't swivel the base of the tripod for pano shots without loosening the ballhead as well because the only lever controls both the ballhead & the rotation.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product but faulty design I bought this ballhead as a light setup (around 230g) to replace my ArcaSwiss P0 (almost 500g) when I need to go smaller and lighter. The ball head is well constructed and is simple to use but I was a bit disapointed by the panning design which is faulty in my opinion. With this ball, you have a single lever which blocks / or unblocks both the rotating ball mechanism AND the panning plate. What it means is that once you want to do some panning, you have to make the panning plate loose a bit (so it can move horizontally) but it also makes the moving ball loose...making your camera to lose its position. I am curious about this ergonomical choice...which is illogical. All in all the panning function of this ball is just useless which is sad since I was looking for a small ballhead that would allow me to do some panning when I need to. I have since looked for panning plates that I could add to this ballhead but the weight saving then becomes anedotic compared to the ArcaSwiss P0... :(

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Backpacking I use this RRS head (with clamp) on a lightweight Gitzo tripod while using a Fuji XT1 camera and either a Fuji 18-55mm or Zeiss 12mm lens. I love the compact size of the RRS head and how easy it is to secure the camera and then manipulate to get the position I want.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully made; smooth as silk in function This is a handsome piece of equipment. If there is an adjective more buttery than "buttery", I'd use it to describe the well-machined form and function of this RRS head. It is a centerpiece of an integrated system of RRS gear, all thought out for compatibility. Expensive, yes: but it is a lot more expensive to buy other gear, only to find out its drawbacks and stick it on the shelf or in the corner. Going "top shelf" right at the start is actually the efficient and economic way to go.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again I bought this ballhead to complement my BH-55 to makeup a lighter weight kit for my Sony a-6000. It is perfect for this camera with a smaller, lighter weight tripod. I have purchased a number of different RRS products over the years and have found them to be consistently very well made and more than adequate for the job. I have never been disappointed. However, I would have liked to see the inclusion of the padded, drawstring pouch.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Ball Head is Perfect I purchased this for my new Really Right Stuff Pocket Pod (which I love) and I'm so happy with it. I've had tripod ball heads that were difficult to move and work with. This one is really perfect. The ball moves with ease, and it's easy to adjust. Also, it doesn't add much weight to my backpack. Yup, I'm sold on this brand and recommend it.
