Sunwayfoto XB-28 overview

  • 1Description

The Sunwayfoto XB-28 Low-Profile Ball Head is Arca-type compatible, and it has a load capacity of 9.9 lb, which is suitable for point-and-shoot and mirrorless cameras. Also, the ball head is ideal to use together with tabletop and small tripods because of its compact 2.6" in height and minimal weight of 0.4 lb. Furthermore, the main locking knob is located off to the side of the ball head instead of on the bottom, which lowers the center of gravity on the head. Also, the main knob has a ratchet feature that pulls out and repositions to gain better leverage for locking and unlocking the knob. Additionally, the head rotates a full 360° by unlocking the independent pan lock, and the CNC-machined aluminum has been anodized with a durable satin finish.

    Sunwayfoto XB-28 reviews

    XB-28 Low-Profile Ball Head is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very small for basic point and shoot camera I wasn't paying the right kind of attention when I pulled the trigger on this one. This thing is way more petite then what I needed it to be. I was searching for a new head with the style and look that this offered. I got over excited. I'd be using this with my DSLR with wide angle lens. Mine came with black securing knobs which differs from pics. Knobs are really small too where I don't have big hands. It does come with a small QR plate. Sadly It's built to hold a flash or small point and shoot camera like a Powershot. Bummed as special order item and took a month to get.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! (Should probably cost more.) I am using this ball head on a monopod with a micro 4/3 camera. I wanted the ability to take vertical photos. A ball head isn't usually the best choice for this (I would use a "L" bracket if I could find one that would work with my camera) but this unit has a bit of drag built into it that enables it to work well for this purpose. Combined with a very low profile, the ability to fit in a Pelican 1520 attached to the monopod, ARCA compatibility and a VERY IMPRESSIVE build quality for me it was the perfect product. This ball head is sold at a very low price point and it even includes with a small pouch for storage. While small it does lock securely and I would trust it with my D610 with a 70-300. (If it goes on back order again, be patient, B&H will ship it when it becomes available.)

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good ballhead for the price This ballhead is great for the price, but you have to keep that price in mind when you think of performance. It is not very smooth and it really needs to be tightened down to hold my X-T2 with 16-55mm 2.8 lens. But, it does the job and for the money I can't complain. The fact that it's arca-swiss compatible is nice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice... Nice ball head, especially at the price. Can do more than the cheapest Really Right Stuff ball head for much less money. Only fault I could force is that the clamp is not removable. I would recommend it to a friend.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice quality, inexpensive. Very nice quality head. Only drawback is the that while it is arca-type compatible, it comes with a low profile plate for mounting to your camera. A regular arca plate will fit, but not in its optimal position.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent small bullhead This seems to be a very good copy of RRS small bullhead. I use it on on Gitzo 0 series tripod as well as Sunwayfoto own table tripod also a RRS clone. It is a perfect setup for some occasions.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for m4/3 and Gorillapod I found this to be just the right size for a Gorillapod tripod and a perfect compliment for micro-4/3rds gear. Add to it ARCA compatibility and a low price and it is a definite winner.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good The product does not level on the tripod. Not working at all.
