Joby JB01514 Overview

  • 1Description

Supporting equipment weighing up to 11 lb, the BallHead 5K from Joby uses a standard 1/4"-20 threaded screw to mount compatible DSLRs, mirrorless cameras, and speedlights. It features full 360° panning and 90° tilting for nearly unrestricted movement, complemented by a separate panning lock for precise adjustments along a single axis. An Arca-type compatible quick release plate is employed for quickly attaching and detaching your gear while you work.

A numbered scale at the base of the tripod head allows you to accurately repeat 360° pans and adjust your position. At only 5.1 oz and with a height of 3.3", the BallHead 5K is portable and can be easily carried without weighing you down. It is designed to be paired with the GorillaPod 5K stand and works with several Joby pro-level accessories that can extend the versatility of your ball head. However, it can also be used on any standard tripod with a 1/4"-20 mount.

  • Standard 1/4"-20 screw for attaching equipment weighing up to 11 lb
  • 360° panning and 90° tilt for optimal position control
  • Arca-type compatible quick release plate makes for a fast and convenient setup
  • Secondary knob that locks pan separately and enables more precise movement along an axis
  • Numbered scale on base lets you accurately repeat 360° pans and adjust your angle
  • Portable design weighing only 5.1 oz and with a height of 3.3"
  • Works with Joby pro-level accessories such as the GripTight PRO Mounts and GorillaPod Arms that allow you to use GoPro adapters, flash clips, and microphones
  • Can be deployed on the GorillaPod 5K stand or any other tripod with a standard 1/4"-20 mount

    Joby JB01514 Reviews

    BallHead 5K is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product failed me Purchased two of these and had a mounting bracket screw fall out on one making it non-functional. Made several calls to the company, 20 minutes from my house, asking for help, which were not returned! The product worked well before this. Will have to buy a new head now from another manufacturer.

    Will the Joby BallHead 5k support a Manfrotto 501 style plate?
    Asked by: Logan
    I use both and NO, the throat on the Joby BallHead 5K is too narrow for the width of the Manfrotto 501 plate.

    Is this rc2 compatible?

    Is this rc2 compatible?
    Asked by: Morgen
    I have no idea what rc2 compatible might mean. All I know is that the Joby 5K is a nice Arca Swiss ball head for a Sirui P-306 monopod. I replaced the Arca Swiss clamp that came with the ball head with a Sunwayfoto DDC-60i clamp that I like much better than the one that comes with the Joby 5K because it has rule markings and a level.
