The BE-126 Ball Head & CWM-01 Car Window Mount Kit from B&H Photo combines a lightweight ball head with a clamp-on car window mount. Supporting up to 26.4 lb, this kit can be used in capturing interior or exterior vehicle shots with your DSLR, mirrorless, or camcorder rig.
Oben BE-126 Ball Head
The BE-126 Ball Head from Oben is a lightweight aluminum ball head that features an Arca-type compatible quick-release system. It has a large locking knob to control the movement of the ball, and a separate knob for the 360° panning movement.
The BE-126's multiple knobs enable higher-precision adjustments to the head than are possible with single-lever heads. Taking panoramic photos is simple, for instance, because you can pan a specific number of degrees while keeping the head's tilt position locked. In fact, the BE-126 features degree markings around its circumference to aid in that task. A notch in the ball head allows you to quickly change between portrait and landscape orientation.
The included quick-release plate attaches to your camera via its standard 1/4"-20 screw, and is secured in place with an Arca-type clamp. A locking knob controls the opening and closing of the aluminum clamp simply and reliably. Two safety screws on the bottom of the plate help prevent your camera from accidentally being released when adjusting the plate fore and aft. One bubble level on the clamp, and another on the locking knob, both ensure that your camera will be level with the horizon.
Oben Car Window Mount
The Oben Car Window Mount clamps directly to a car window and provides a 3/8"-16 mounting stud for attaching a head and camera. It enables you to shoot photos and video from inside your car in various applications. A popular use is capturing wildlife in a safari or similar setting without having to get out of the car. It can also be used to slowly drive by your subject in film or commercial applications. The mount is secured to windows and other surfaces with a clamp range up to 0.5" thick, and it also provides a lip rest for window-to-door stabilization. It also features padding to provide scratch protection for the window and door.
