    Really Right Stuff BC-18 MICRO BALL CLAMP Reviews

    BC-18 Micro Ball Clamp is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly well designed. If you under estimate the power of the small size of this, it is a mistake. I put Fuji film GFX 50s on this, It works without any problem. Highly detailed and calculated quality of this head, of course, good for smaller cameras. But I must say, that it has enough power to hold the Fuji Film New medium format camera. And it looks sexy ! Higher priced, but top quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Startlingly Good THE best micro ball on the market. Very well designed, 101 uses and locks with zero slop/sag. It's also shockingly strong. I've used it holding a Hassy H5D with zero issues and it locks instantly with none of that minute sag at tightening so common in ball heads. It also can only drop 45 deg in any given direction so if you make a mistake, it can only drop 45. RRS should market scaled-up versions of the design.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb product. Great with multi-clamp and Leica tabletop. Great product as always from RRS. Surprisingly (really!) sturdy and stable. The camera is solidly locked. I use the clamp with the RRS multi-clamp(230g) and it is a super combination. I also have a very old Leica tabletop tripod with folding legs, that folds flat and weighs very little (110g). WIth those three components (combined weight of 450g), I can handle many if not most situations, without carrying my tripod; when for example wandering around at night, after dinner, while travelling.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Micro Ball Head on the market Great design and construction and reliable. The best ball bead for your compact gear.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing product I coupled this with my RRS BG-01 mini tripod and immediately tried out my heaviest camera and lens on it. Not a trace of movement was detectable with that combination. I was surprised at how stable this combination is. This way I'll always have a tripod with me since the whole assembly will easily fit in a pocket or camera bag.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from ReDesign Attachment to Screw Onto Typical 3/8 Tripod Stud Either RRS should redesign the attachment base or else offer some kind of specialized reducing brush / coupling nut or whatever that goes with this micro ball clamp so that it can be screwed onto a typical RRS tripod stud.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small but mighty Rock solid for rated lenses and even heavier lenses. I use it with the RRS mini tripod but you could use it as monopod mount as well. I thought it a bit pricey but in this case you get what you pay for.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from RRS BC-18 Micro Ball Clamp This clamp is really expensive, however it is also really high quality. As with all RRS Stuff you buy it once and generally have it for life, at least that has been my experience.
