Really Right Stuff BH-40 overview

  • 1Description

The BH-40 Ball Head with No Clamp from Really Right Stuff is a 13 oz mid-sized ball head that will support camera-lens combinations weighing up to 18 lb. Crafted from aluminum and stainless steel, the BH-40 has all of the features you'd expect from a professional-level head. An over-sized, ergonomic locking T-knob allows 45-degree tilting in all directions and a 90-degree drop-notch facilitates quick and accurate switching from the horizontal landscape position to vertical portrait orientation. A separate tension knob is provided to apply the appropriate pressure that safely corresponds to the weight of your camera. A third knob loosens and locks the panning base which is laser-engraved with markers every 2.5 degrees from 0 to 360 degrees. This version of the head has no clamp, but can be customized with a RRS quick release or another manufacturer's quick release system.

Benefits
  • Ergonomic design gives superior handling and unsurpassed reliability
  • Lowest height profile in its class
  • Knobs are captive and uniquely shaped, making operation by feel very intuitive
  • 90-Degree drop-notched allows maximum flexibility for positioning the camera for portrait-orientation or extreme angle shots
  • Micrometer drag tension adjustment is repeatable and absolutely reliable
  • Precision panning base is finely laser-engraved at 2.5 degree intervals and features unique drum and brake design for effortless locking
  • Laser-engraved millimeter scale offers precise centering and positioning within the clamp jaw
  • All components are machined from solid aircraft aluminum or stainless steel for maximum durability and minimum weight

    Really Right Stuff BH-40 reviews

    BH-40 Ball Head with No Clamp is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth as Silk I have the BH-55 and just love it, but I wanted the same smooth movement and functionality in a lighter package for hiking.� I mounted the BH-40 with my extra B2-AS II clamp on a RRS Series 2 tripod and, voila!� Rock solid, almost a pound lighter and all the same quality machined features of the BH-55.� My favorite feature is the easy to loosen “sculpted” pan lock knob.� I say this because I’ve tightened the pan lock on my BH-55 too tight many times.� The BH-40 will easily handle the rated 18 lbs. and is as smooth as silk even with the off-center torque of a panning rail.
