Oben BA-126 overview

  • 1Description

The BA-126 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-126 reviews

    BA-126 Single Lever Ball Head is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice ballhead It's quite beefy. Well made. I bought it because it was on sale. Everything worked fine except for one thing that bothered me. The lever arm has some slight play in it, maybe 1/16 to 2/16ths of an inch, not much, but it still bothered me. I asked about it on B&H and got 6 or 7 responses. About half told me their's had no play. About half said their's did. Some said it just didn't bother them so they kept it. For me I felt that it could be an issue that could only get worse after much use so I ended up sending it back for a refund. Bottomline, I don't want to disparage it as all in all it was very nice but, if that play bothered me the first day I used it, it would bother me forever so, got a refund.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from love it so much. Delivered the other day. pretty fast, great product, I love it so much, when I try my telephoto lens 150-500mm it was solid and sturdy. Thank you very much for the kind support.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Creep The metal ball head is solid and secure. My problem is with the quick release mechanism. There is too much play once the camera is mounted. The only way to adjust this ball head is to support the camera while tightening the adjustment know on the ball head. This is fine, and is recommended standard procedure. However, upon releasing the camera, the head settles into place, completely altering the composition of the shot. I understand this is common with lower priced units, but I have not experienced it to this degree in comparably priced heads.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent This is a big improvement over the pistol head I was using. Much sturdier. I like the one-knob locking method, although I'm still getting used to finding the knob, as it's a little small. Holds my medium format camera with a fairly heavy lens with no problem. A good buy for those of us who do not need a head with precise click adjustments.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Meh Average. I noticed the joint was slightly stiff and would stick every once and awhile, but nothing major. It was annoying to only have one locking knob. Why put the degree marks on the head for panning shots if every time you pan the ball head is loosened?
