Oben BD-02 Overview

  • 1Description

The Oben BD-02 Mini Ball Head a great option to top off a miniature or table-top tripod model. Constructed of precisely-machined aluminum, the BD-02 functions like most full-sized ball heads but features a low-profile design with a wide top platform. A single-action lever loosens the ball along with the pan so it allows the head to move freely in all directions. In addition, a groove allows the head to tilt 90° in one direction.

The BD-02 head can serve as a replacement head for an Oben TT-100, TT-200, or TT-300 table-top tripod. Or it can allow you to properly orient your camera on any other tripod model, whether it has a 1/4"-20 or a 3/8"-16 stud – the head has a 3/8" thread and comes with a reducer bushing to make it compatible with the 1/4"-type stud.

    Oben BD-02 Reviews

    BD-02 Mini Ball Head is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pocket size This is a good mini ball head for using smaller cameras.  Im primarily using this on one of my mini table top tripods with an action camera.  Its small enough to easily throw it into your pocket and strong enough to hold lighter cameras and accessories.   [I received this product in exchange for buy honest review.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Platypod This is idea size to use with platypod on my full frame DSLR with wide angle lens. Same great quality you get with Oben products. Just because it is small it is very well built, look forward to many years of use from this little small ball head.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didnt quite work. I had planned to use this ball head with the Manfrotto 243 car window pod to support a lightweight spotting scope or my wife’s D3400 Nikon. The head has no problem supporting the weight of either optic. The issue is with trying to pan or adjust the position of the scope or camera. With the locking screw (knob) just loose enough to be able to tilt or pan the camera or scope, the optic can be panned clockwise to a certain extent. Any attempt to pan counterclockwise will result in the tripod screw coming loose from the camera. I was unable to get the tripod screw/plastic thumb nut tight enough into the tripod socket to avoid this problem. I doubt even hacking everything up with a pliers would make it sufficiently tight. This ball head might be ok with a little point and shoot or very lightweight mirrorless camera, but I believe that it is better suited to something that will be mounted in a stationary position such as a trail camera or a flash unit. I have a Manfrotto 496 pan head which works on the car window pod, but it’s large size and height with the quick release makes it almost too tall for car window use. The Oben would have been just the right height. Its a solid little unit. Ill keep it.
