Vanguard BBH-100 Reviews
BEWARE: not Arco-Swiss compatible
The clamp does not open wide enough to drop in an Arco-Swiss L-bracket. You also cannot slide it in because there is a spring loaded safety latch. Finally, A-S plates generally have a bolt head that sticks up as a safety block, but the clamp does not provide the normal notch that allows that bolt head to go in past the edge of the clamp. Basically, you'll need Vanguard branded QR plates and L-brackets. P.S. I nearly dropped my camera trying to open the clamp wide enough. BE CAREFUL.
My favorite ball head
I use the BBH 100 ballhead with along with the ProGearMedia L Bracket...very stable camera support. My only desire is for quicker camera dismount. Also, as a safety feature I would to be able to unscrew the plate to loosen it, then pull back on the screw to remove the plate entirely. Nevertheless, this is still my favorite ballhead.
Vanguard BBH 100 Ballhead
This is a great ball head. I did have a problem with the first one I received. One of the bubble vials was not working, so B&H shipped me a new one. The second one I received the Rapid Level System did not work as it was discripbed. I contacted B&H and again they understood and shipped me a new one. Both times they paid for the return of the defective one. I have a Vanguard tripod so I wanted the two systems to be compatable. I had read and heard nothing but good things about Vanguard products so I watned to stay with their system. I am very happy with the tripod and the ballhead.
BBH-100 Ball head
Meets our needs completely.
I purchased this while Vanguard was running a $40 rebate so it fit my limited budget I had to spend on my smaller DX Nikon. The head does produce a tiny bit of creep sometimes while tightening down the levers. To me it's not a big deal for the price I paid. Locked down it's solid as rock. Keep in mind I'm only holding up 4.5 lbs of equipment. Overall I'm happy with it.
Excellent piece of equipment
I needed a ball head for my Kirk L-bracket that had an Arca Swiss plate. Looking through reviews and prices I chose this one and I am very happy with it. Just did a panorama up un Portland Maine this weekend and the stability and ease of use lived up to the hype and the description in the BH catalogue.
Works very well even with a heavy 1DX body
This is my first good tripod head. What a great choice. Very smooth and easy to adjust. I use it with a Nikon D-3200 and the 55-300 zoom lens. There is no flopping forward with the camera and heavy lens - it is secure. Very good quality and no plastic junk.
