Oben BA-108 overview

  • 1Description

The BA-108 Single Lever Ball Head from Oben is a simple ball head with one locking knob to control all motion. The knob allows you to unlock the ball so that you can quickly orient your camera properly, retighten the knob, and return to shooting. This enables fast setup changes, and frees you to keep a finger on the trigger while you're making a quick adjustment to the head's orientation. The head has a 90° notch which facilitates shooting in portrait orientation. One bull's eye and three tubular bubble levels ensure your camera is level on both the horizontal and vertical axes.

The included quick-release plate has a retractable video pin, and attaches to your camera via its standard 1/4"-20 screw. With your camera attached to the quick-release plate, it easily snaps and locks into place on the ball head, and a safety lock on the release lever prevents it from being accidentally released.

    Oben BA-108 reviews

    BA-108 Single Lever Ball Head is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 37.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent for Macro I purchased this to go with my Vanguard Alta Pro 264AT 4-Section Aluminum Tripod for use in macro photography. I wanted something that I could easily manipulate, close to the ground with the camera inverted. I also wanted something that would be relatively small. This head does a pretty good job meeting my requirements, although I have found that it does sag just a little after tightening down. I am happy enough that I ordered a second one to go on my monopod.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple Design Bought this ball head to mount my DSLR onto my slider. I like the simplicity of its design; single lever that adjusts everything I need, lock it in place and I'm ready to shoot. It also has a quick-release feature that comes very handy. It has bubble levelers in every corner you might need it. It's mostly made of metal which I expect to last a long time. It is compact that makes it a breeze to install and fits easily in my bag. Everything is good about this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made I really like this ball head. It purchased it to go on a monopod. It did come with the thread adapter to do this with. It is very functional and has smooth range of motion. The quick release is easy to use and it also locks in place very well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality I have used it serveral times so far and it make useing my tripod a breeze. It is very easy to put my camera on and off the tripod. I take mostly wildlife photo's while I drive around different place so my camera is in and out of the case a lot. When I make a day of shooting it is not as important. But when I'm in and out of the car it is. I'm very satified with my purchase. Jim

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Ball Head But.... Bought this with my monopod recently. And I like the bubble levels, the quick release, and the ability to orient my camera where I want to. But I wonder why the head has the ability to swivel at the bottom? It does not rotate around like it should, which is probably not all bad. But it seems like this ball head deserves to be redesigned. A few times I found the mounting beginning to unscrew when trying to rotate my camera using the bottom swivel. Other than that, there is not a problem with this.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't Support Any Weight This ball head advertises a max load weight of 8 pounds, however it can't even support my Lumix G7, which weighs less than 2lbs, without sagging. Keep in mind when purchasing this that you're paying for four redundant bubble levels and metal construction, not anything that actually works.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Addition Updated my Bogen monopod to handle the new gear, just like the other tripod. It came with the step down screw adapter so I did not need to order it separately. Otherwise, just as ordered.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Travel This is my second Oben Ba-108 Ball Head. I wanted it for my monopod and I also wanted a second one to use for travel, one on my smaller tripod and one on the monopod. Also one plate on each of two different cameras to make a quick switch. My cameras are a micro four-thirds mirrorless, total weight with heaviest lens about 27 ozs., and a small point and shoot. I'm also planning to get a cell phone holder. This is a perfect addition to my travel gear.
