Does it come with a case? If not what is recommended?
Asked by: Patrick
You would think that with a high-precision instrument like this there would be an included bag or case. I would suggest a lens pouch. This one would fit and cuddle your ballhead in neoprene niceness.

question

What is arca plate compatible?
Asked by: Donna I.
Arca or Arca Swiss is a company that developed a quick release plate system that uses a dove tail base. It is very stable and easy to use. Many companies have now imitated this style and thus the plates are almost always interchangeable with all arca type heads.

question

what is the diameter of the thread on the bottom of this head?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Vanguard BBH-200 Ballhead has a 3/8 -16 thread for mounting to a tripod. It also comes with a /4 -20 to 3/8 Reducer Bushing for tripods and monopods that have the smaller thread size for mounting a head.

question

Does this head accommodate the acra L plate as well?
Asked by: Angelika P.
It's a little too small for my arca-type bracket. I can slide the bracket in when the mount is fully opened, but it's still tight and a pain to get on and off. I also had to loosen the safety pin to be able to slide it on.

question

Is this ballhead compatible with a all vanguard tripods or just a select few?
Asked by: Anonymous
As far as I know, it is all tripods. Ballheads screw onto the x 20 screw in the top of the tripod and then you use the lockdown screws to tighten the head in place. The only consideration would be that the 200 is for a heavier camera and may not work well on small or lightweight tripods. Hope that helps V.

question

Is the notch on this ball head 90 degree? (In other words, when you drop into the notch for portrait orientation, is it perfectly 90 deg? Many ball heads go past 90 deg, and you have to fiddle with it and lock it down to make it perfectly 90 deg)
Asked by: Andy
Hi, yes its a perfect 90 deg placement no adjustments needed.
