The BE-126 Ball Head from Oben is a lightweight aluminum ball head with a load capacity of 26.4 lb, a large locking knob to control the movement of the ball, and a separate knob for the 360° panning movement. The individual knobs enable higher-precision adjustments to the head than are possible with single-lever heads. Taking panoramic photos is simple thanks to the panoramic scale at the base of the head. A notch in the ball head allows orientation to quickly change between portrait and landscape.

The included Arca-type quick release plate attaches to any camera and is secured in place with the receiver's locking knob, simply and reliably. Two removable safety screws on the bottom of the plate help prevent your camera from accidentally being released prematurely. One bubble level on the clamp and another on the locking knob ensure that the camera will be level with the horizon.

Dual Action Ball Head

The BE-126 dual-action ball head boasts smooth and effortless operation and features separate locking knobs for independently adjusting the ball and panoramic base.

Arca-Type Quick Release

The BE-126 Ball Head includes an Arca-type quick release plate for easily mounting and dismounting a camera. Adding a compatible Oben quick release plate to all your cameras facilitates camera swapping so you can exchange cameras without interrupting your shoot.

Dual Bubble Levels

The ball head features two integrated bubble levels to help make sure the camera is perfectly aligned with the horizon.

Can tension be adjusted on this head to hold a camera in place??
Asked by: Terry
Yes ... but it all depends on the size of the camera and the size (lenght) of the lens. This ballhead is designed a DSLR with a SHORT lens ... or a Mirrorless Camera ... with a short lens. Check the max weight limit for the ballhead. I would not recommend this ballhead or Oben products in general. Oben products are low price and low quality and tend not to last. IMO ... spend more money on a quality ballhead or tripods ... such as Benro or Really Right Stuff ... that will last for a very long time. Same for tripods ... my Oben tripod broke after warranty and no customer service. Buy right ... the first time.
