Matthews BH-30 overview

  • 1Description

Unlike most other ball head mounts which are manufactured from die cast components, the Matthews BH-30 Ball Head is individually CNC machined from solid bar stock to ensure precise control over all critical dimensions and elements.

This ball head will support up to 39.6 lb (18 kg). It is supplied with a precision machined quick release plate that is well balanced and allows quick, safe and positive-locking of the camera to the ball head mount. The mounting plate can stay permanently attached to the camera to avoid taking the time to screw the camera onto the ball or screwing the ball onto the camera.

    Matthews BH-30 reviews

    BH-30 Ball Head is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid and sturdy design This is a wonderful tripod head that offers great adjustability by incorporating a swivel function in it's base. The parts are very well machined and even the knobs drip with precision and quality. The shoe is quite modular and with a couple turns of a finger screw it tips right out. There's a safety feature that prevents a camera from sliding out accidentally if the clamp is loosened a bit. This is paired nicely to my Induro AT-213 tripod. Only reason why it is getting 4 of 5 stars is that one of the spirit levels (yes, it comes with two!) looked to defective/empty of any fluid. I have an internal level on my Canon 60D so it isn't a big deal for me. Might be for others... I highly recommend this product

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from all around great head it is a really quality quality head and amazingly light. Feels like it will last through years of abuse. I will probably replace the mount, so that i can have a level on the mount. The dial has measurements, but it is independently moveable so it can be a little confusing. The whole head does not spin too easily when it is mounted on the tripod. It can really hold a good long lens, and cant overtighten.
