Slik SBH-60 overview

  • 1Description

This compact, lightweight ballhead is ideal for any point-and-shoot digital or film camera. The head features an easy to use single-lever release that locks the camera into place with one single action. Differing itself from many inexpensive ball heads on the market, the base of this head can rotate in addition to the ball movement. This makes horizontal movement of the camera much faster and easier.

All-metal construction
Compact and lightweight
Panning base
Base diameter of 0.95" (24mm)
Camera platform diameter of 1.3" (33mm)
Speedy Attachment Without a Quick Release's Additional Weight
Just 3 or 4 half-turns of the mounting platform attaches the camera to the ballhead, and the underside of the platform is ergonomically designed to aide in this task.  Slik's solution here is slightly slower than snap-in and at least as fast as 'vise grip' quick release assemblies, but eliminates their size, weight and cost.

    Slik SBH-60 reviews

    SBH-60 Compact Ballhead 60 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very lightweight This item is very small and lightweight. I purchased it for one purpose only, to mount my Gopro camera on a medium light stand. For that purpose it works perfectly, and I give it 5 stars for supporting this camera. However I would NOT ask it to support much more weight than that of a Gopro camera, or similarly sized item.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the money I use this ballhead in combination with an inexpensive tripod to mount a Plamp articulated arm for steadying plants for macrophotography. Works great. It feels like it could actually hold considerably more load than its rating suggests. It's able to pan, but not in a way that would be useful in panorama photography, as only one clamp lever locks/unlocks the ball and the panning rotation simultaneously.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Little Ballhead. This is a great all metal ballhead. I use it with a Pedco ultra clamp to hold my Drift HD. The plastic ball head that came on the ultra clamp still didn't provide complete stability in high vibration situations. The Slik sorted this out perfectly, without being too bulky or heavy. As usual excellent service from the team at BH. Great range of products, prices and customer service. Thanks v much!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tiny, but useful for point and shoot This head was used on top of a small slik tripod for a point and shoot camera. If I'd realized how small it is, I'd probably get the next size up, but it works very well. The way you attach it to the camera and the way you adjust its orientation are both very easy to use. I prefer t his over the bulkier ballheads with handles, unless you're shooting video.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little item I film Hockey games for my three grandsons and my monopod was useless because I need to tilt the camera when there is action in front of me. This thing works like a charm. I saw some complaints that it was not smooth action - but you just need to add a little oil and adjust the tension on the ball and it is smooth as can be.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very useful. This little ball head is great on a monopod so you can tilt the camera for vertical shots. And I use it on flash brackets so I can aim the flash in the desired direction to bounce light off of walls and ceilings.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality basic mount Simple mount design, easy to use, great quality product. It is surprisingly heavy which gives it a more expensive feel (some may list this as a con, but the weight is not a concern for me).

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok for the minet Not for anything heavy, just a light off camera flash. Put my ice light knock off in it and it was too heavy...meaning where i positioned the ball head wouldn't stay.
