Not so good in the cold

By Robert

I really wanted to love the PromediaGear BH50 ball head. It is the perfect size and weight for my needs. It pans smoothly and (when warm) the locking is solid and easily controlled. I like the size and layout of the various knobs and if I had bought this in the warm weather, I would have kept it. But I live and do most of my photography in Connecticut and winter temps are usually in the 20s to 40 degrees F. The tension on this head gets stiff even at 40 and the colder it gets the stiffer it got even with all knobs set to have no tension at all. It was tested at 10, 20, 30, and 40 degrees in my garage and inside my house at 65. I attempted to communicate with Promediagear to find out if it is a characteristic of this head or a one-off problem with just this one. I got nowhere with that. So, unfortunately, it goes back to the store. There are very few reviews out there on this head but one other talked about issues in the cold weather.

This is a robust and flexible Ball Head that is a real winner. The ball is very smooth with little to no sticktion, even with a decent amount of friction dialed in. Dual drop notches are a nice touch and the large locking knob is really great.
