Constructed with magnesium for durability, this Pistol Grip Ball Head from Studio Assets can support any equipment as heavy as 17.6 lb for easy positioning. Its main feature is the pistol-style grip, with a bar that can be pressed down to allow for free movement and then simply released to lock in the desired position. Paired with the ball head is a quick release plate, which uses a 1/4"-20 screw to attach to your camera and allows for easy mounting and unmounting.

The tall design of the tripod head allows it to tilt 90° in any direction, resulting in a total range of 180°. A bubble level is available at the base of the pistol grip in case you want to precisely straighten your camera. With a height of 7.9" and a weight of 1.5 lb, this head can be installed on any tripod with a 3/8"-16 screw.

    Magnesium Pistol Grip Ball Head with Quick Release Plate is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Well Built I use this for a heavy spotting scope. This pistol grip is built like a tank. When I position my spotting scope and let go of the pistol grip handle, it doesn't move at all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely LOVE this pistol grip. I would always have such a hard time with the basic tripod heads, and when searching online for an alternative came across a video with this pistol grip. I have not looked back since. It was strong enough to hold a projector and tray (says it can hold up to 18lbs of weight) and it holds true so far! I would absolutely buy again if I ever needed to.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cool in some ways I only got this yesterday and began to play around with it. I do love that I can maneuver it easily with the exception of putting the camera in portrait mode. �There is really only one thing that I don't like about this and ....well, it's kind of a big one. �When I have the camera in portrait mode, the camera starts to tip very slowly down because the screw that fits into the camera base keeps coming loose. �My old tripods I could tighten the bolt on the underside of the plate to the camera and if there was any "play" I could lock the plate in and carefully tighten it by turning the camera (my Manfrotto was awesome for this). When you try this, the entire bolt turns so it does not get any tighter. �My fear is that while the camera is in portrait mode it will just come unscrewed from the plate and fall on the floor. �I was only playing around with it for about 35 minutes and tightened it three times. Otherwise the concept and performance are pretty awesome. You can turn the camera at different angles and they will stay put. �I will update once I use this in an actual session to see how it holds up.
