    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent &Tough Little Guy What to expect from German engineering? nothing but the best really. This little guy can really take the weight. I mounted a canon eos m3 with a canon 24-70mm L. I can tilt the tripod forward as low as i need and the head ball holds the cam and lens in place w/o a hicup. Excellent buy and price.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from A disappointment I ordered this to use with my venerable Leitz/Leica table tripod and wish it worked better for me. The FLM CB-18 looks great on the Leitz tripod and seems decently finished but it simply does not have the holding power I need - or my fingers are not strong enough to lock it down tight enough. The knob is too small - a paddle like RRS (and Gitzo) use on their small heads would be better. �The specified weight capacity of 13 lbs. is very misleading - I have no doubt the head can hold that if it is balanced, but in practice the usable load is maybe a quarter of that. �I will keep looking for a better solution for my use. �This head would be fine if I only wanted to use my Nikon 1 gear on it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this again Replaced small Oben head with this. Has a bigger camera platform. So more support. So much better. A real jewel.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes I would buy again and again. Put this on the butt end of an RRS Safari clamp mounted with a Desmond DAC-38 clamp to gain full articulation camera angle. Works great with lighter Fuji XE-1 and shortish lenses for close up shots. Small enough for Safari clamp pkg. to remain compact IE close to the ground clamped to a log or whatever. Close up photography is chock full of challenges so this rig solved a few.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent small ball head small compact but very well made, it can handle more than it looks, perhaps does not feel as refined as its bigger brothers but still a good deal for its price. I attach this on my Leica table top tripod and it makes a great combo.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from small head with locking power! When you buy a small ball head you want the locking power for weird angles etc.. this one actually provides it. having used a lot of others this is well worth it and I will only ever buy this one again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid build It holds my Atomos Ninja Flame with two 6600 mAh batteries in any position I put it, even with sudden movements or jolts. I'd say that's a win
