    Vello CS-BH2 reviews

    Multi-Function Ball Head with Removable Bottom Shoe Mount is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 85.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Would not buy again. This product has the potential to be great, but it's way too loose to hold a solid montior up on a DSLR/mirrorless camera. The head gets loose too easily, can't handle the load. Maybe I'm exceeding the load capacity or something, but it's definitely not doing a great job of keeping my new Atomos Ninja Flame up and locked into the shoe mount. Every time I have to move the camera with the monitor on it using this ball head, I'm panicking thinking that it would go crashing to the ground at any moment. And I have to tighten it wayyyyy to hard for it to stay put... but then it just slips out of the hotshoe mount on my camera. Can't recommend this to anyone, sorry...

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not trustworthy, almost broke my monitor One of the worst products I purchased in BH. Does not fit tight in the hotshoe mount. The screw is plastic and it slips. It almost broke my monitor when it felt loose slipping out of the hotshoe leaving my Blackmagic LCD in the ground. Would send it back if I lived in the USA. Its illogic to buy this piece instead of the manfrotto ballhead, the price difference is not worthy breaking a 200 500 dollars monitors it is supposed to hold, because it doesn't hold tight. I threw mine in the trash can.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice size and weight Pretty sturdy, nice materials used in construction. However it's a little too easy to loosen the bottom hot shoe bit. If it's not very tight then your unit can wobble which is bad because it sends vibrations through the camera. It could just be my copy but I had to tighten it pretty hard to get it to stay in place. I am NOT referring to the thumb screw for the ball mount which is very secure. I use this to hold my Atomos Ninja Assassin to the top of my Sony A7RII and Canon c100. For a little more money there are other brands which I would probably go for if I had to buy again.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well Works well. I saw this as a recommendation after purchasing the atomos shogun for my A7S. It works. Be warned - hold the atomos at all times. I didn't secure the cold shoe properly to the A7S (thats my bad) and the atomos slid and almost hit the ground. I hear that would definatley have smashed the screen. So, if you buy this, please done be like me. Always secure the accesory on the hot show and doubel check. If its more than 1000 dollars, triple check. If you saved up for months to buy the accesory... wiggle it one last time...just for safety. Then enjoy it :-)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Way To Attach Monitor to Tripod If you try to find a solution to attach a tablet as a monitor for your DSLR this is it. You can put it on top of your camera on the hotshoe. If you need to use the hotshoe for a flash or a trigger and already have a superclamp simply detach the bottom and use the pin that comes with the superclamp (see picture) Now you can put your monitor anywhere. Tether tools and other vendors have setups that go above $100; sometimes even more than $200.In the picture Istabilizer tabmount B&H # ISTTABM01 $ Impact Superclamp B&H # IMCC106T $ This product is $ so all the setup comes down to $ but the Istabilizer and superclamp will be very useful for many other things and many other ways.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have like 10 of these! All of my light stands have a 5/8 thread on top. I un-screw the cold foot from the Ball Head, and then screw the Ball Head onto a light stand. I can then screw on a LED light with a 1/4-20 mounting hole, or I can screw on a cold shoe adapter onto the top of the Ball Head in order to mount a compact flash unit.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from All metal construction Everything about the construction says well made for the price, except for the most important part, the knob and screw that tightens this puppy up. I can't torque it down enough to hold a 600EX in place. I have solved the problem under my own terms, and now this thing is a diamond in the ruff. So much so that I am buying two more. I'm only rating a three, but it could easily be a five if I didn't have to fix the absolute obvious.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Can't quite support a Shogun! We're using this with our FS5 and Shogun combo and when moving the tripod around, it just can't keep it stable, so everyone's heart skips a beat when the ball head topples over. A Shogun is certain not 4.4 lbs =)
