Cambo CS-396 overview

  • 1Description

The CS-396 Ball Head from Cambo is a 1.5" tall, single locking knob head that is use to support a microphone, a monitor, or a small video light. Moreover, the equipment can also be elevated with the CS-M8 arm to a higher vantage point while mounted to the head, and a 1/4"-20 male thread is provided at the top of the head with a 1/4"-20 female thread at the base, so it can virtually mount to any tabletop tripod, camera rig, or bracket as well.

    Cambo CS-396 reviews

    CS-396 Ball Head is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid but lube it Out of the box I could not tighten the knob enough by hand to keep the ball from moving. The action was very irregular. I almost returned it but decided to unscrew the knob and look at the construction. Nice design very solid as you would expect from Cambo but there was only a small amount of grease on the upper surface of the ball clamp and none on the locking flange. I cleaned and applied synthetic grease to the whole mechanism and now it operates superbly. Clean, compact good looking design. (For even smoother performance a little 300 grit emery cloth did the trick. Which means this ball will get better with time.)
