Magnus BH-11 overview

  • 1Description

The Magnus BH-11 Medium Ball Head has a load capacity of 11.0 lb and can be attached to tripods or other support systems that feature a 3/8"-16 mount.

By loosening the BH-11 Medium Ball Head's locking knob, its ball-and-socket joint can be quickly swiveled 360°, angled, fully tilted at either one of two sides, or returned to its upright position.

Cameras or accessories that are compatible with a 1/4"-20 mount can be connected to the BH-11 Medium Ball Head's rubberized, non-slip platform, which includes an integrated thumbwheel. Turning the platform's thumbwheel allows its 1/4"-20 mount to rotate and thread directly into a compatible camera or device.

    Magnus BH-11 reviews

    Magnus BH-11 Medium Ball Head is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love that thumbscrew mount This is a pretty well built ball head...the housing is metal not plastic, and it tightens tight, can't budge it. It can hold 11 pounds. Not expensive for what you get. I broke a Barska pistol grip that was bulky and difficult to operate. This head is a breeze to use.Love that thumbscrew. For 15 yrs I owned a Canon adapter for their 35mm manual tilt shift lens that I attached to the tripod head plate, it had a thumbscrew. I could change cameras in a flash without having to deal with changing mount plates or removing plates for handheld use. I recently lost it and was heartbroken. I could only find a couple in Japan for way to much money until I saw this. I recommend this product 110%. Thanks B&H

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent for the price!! Wanted this as an added feature for my new Vanguard Monopod. I did not want to spend a bunch for something I probably wouldn't use that often. This turned out to be the perfect ticket. It is well built and the adjustment is solid. I like the wider flange at the top for fixing to the camera or telephoto lens. Just be aware that the connection on this is 3/8-16 and my monopod is 1/4-20. I ended up purchasing a reducing flange which works great. I would rate this a solid 4.5 stars.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality for the price. I bought this head to go along with a Siuri monopod that I bought. I have been pleased with the quality. It fits well on the monopod. I especially like the easy-to-use camera base, which makes changing cameras fast. The ball head holds tight no matter where I position it. The tightening wheel seems a bit not up to the quality of the rest of the head, but it should still be adequate enough. And one cannot beat the price. Overall, I am most pleased with this head.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect small size ballhead The Magnus BH11 ball head is especially sturdy for its size, and it's easy to use.��I recommend it for anyone who wants a secondary head that is light and easy to carry around.� It works really well on my Platypod.� It's short enough so even a DSLR won't overbalance the Platypod.� Having a convenient secondary head means I don't have to take the larger ball head from my tripod.� All that coupled with the low price makes this ball head a great value.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Head Originally purchased it to hold tri-hot shoe flash adapter. Plan on also using it as the shorter head on my Leica tabletop legs as the current long head is a little too long as a chest pod. This is a 3/8 " base opening so need to have an adapter available separately to use with 1/4" screws. This small head costs less than 1/10th the price of the Leica small table top head!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magnus BH-11 Ball Head What an excellent value. I didn’t need something super expensive for my monopod, and did the job perfectly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice ball head for medium weight film cameras Seems well-made.� Camera platform is a good size with rubber material to keep camera in place.
