question

does it wiggle when there is wind?
Asked by: Anonymous
While this head would not wiggle in windy conditions, it is important to stay within the load capacity of the head for the best stability.

question

Will the Kirk BH-1P Pouch fit this ballhead? I am certain that it will fit vertically, but I am not too sure if it would fit horizontally. The BBH-100 ballhead is much wider than it appears, once the knobs are taken into consideration. If the Kirk won't fit, what other recommendations might you have?
Asked by: Anonymous
The case is too small for that head.There are many others that will work. These are links to some of them.http://bhpho.to/1ajTMDxhttp://bhpho.to/1kFLQxq

question

Can I mount this ballhead on a Manfrotto 055XPROB tripod?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Vanguard BBH-100 Ballhead is compatible with the Manfrotto 055XPROB legs. The Manfrotto 055XPROB legs have a 3/8-16 mount thread, as does the Vanguard BBH-100. The Vanguard also comes with a reducer bushing should you want to mount it onto a set of legs/monopod with 1/4-20 thread.
