Really Right Stuff BH-25 with Lever Overview

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 with Lever Reviews

Great little ball head

By Gregory
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-04-05

Very well built and it should be for the price. It was backorders for some time and when it finally came I was completely satisfied with spending the price. It holds firm and secure and the clamp is very well built and is a nice easy system to quickly lock your body or lens securely to the ball head. My BH-25 was purchased for my star tracker and it's a perfect fit.

RRS products are the best

On occasion I've had to correspond with RRS and they were helpful and considerate. They simply make best heads and legs. The BH-25 is compact and sturdy enough for my SLR.

I have the RRS BH-55 which is overkill for my mirrorless system (unless I'm using the big telephoto) so I bought this ball head for hiking. I love how light weight it is. I prefer the functioning of the BH-55 but for hiking this is perfect.

Quality ball head.

Like all RRS products, very high quality. Perfect match to my mono-pod.

RRS components are so smooth. This is a great (non-panning) ball head. The weight versus carrying capacity is excellent. Only 4 stars because it's so expensive, but it's a really nice piece of kit.

ReDesign With Panning Base

By Sharon

If RRS can design the BPC-16 with a panning clamp / base, then they can include a panning feature in this ballhead, which would make it a much more attractive purchase item.

WONDERFUL SMALL BALL HEAD.

I have a number of Really Right Stuff products and they never disappoint. I bought this to put on a Gitzo monopod. The craftmanship is amazing and there is no slippage when a camera and lens is mounted like many products. This is a lifetime product.

"Springy"

By Fabrice
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2022-02-18

Works smoothly with prosumer mirrorless camera and a 2+ pounds lens but the knob feels and sounds "springy" on my sample when tightened: it sounds and feels like there is a cheap spring inside that slips and sticks as it is being extended. Was not expecting that for the price.

Is the BH-25 the best choice for use on a platypod ultra? I plan on using it with my Olympus OMD EM1 Mk2 with a 12-40MM lens. Or should I step up to the BH-30 for this use?
Asked by: Michael
The Really Right Stuff BH-30 Ball Head with Compact Lever-Release Clamp B&H # REBH30LR would be better to use with the Platypod Ultra since it has nearly double the load capacity of the BH-25.

Is there a safety on the lever-release?
Asked by: Brian
No, you do not need a safety lock on the RRS lever release. The release plate should have safety pins to prevent the plate from quickly sliding off if you release the lever by mistake.

How is this Lever-Release Clamp vs the screw knob version?

Excellent alternative. First it's quicker. Second, you don't have the protruding knob. But in final function mode, either one will do the job.
