FLM CB-48 overview

  • 1Description

The CB-48F from FLM is a ball head with a mounting platform and two locking knobs. One knob controls 360° panning and the other controls the friction and movement of the ball. The CB-48F has a maximum load capacity of 77.2 lb.

It can be mounted to a tripod, monopod or any other support with a 3/8"-16 male thread. A notch in the head allows the camera to tilt 90° to shoot in portrait orientation. A camera can be attached directly to the ball head, or a quick release system can be added to speed up camera attachment.

    FLM CB-48 reviews

    CB-48F Ball Head with Mounting Platform is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most precise ball head ever The FLM CB-48F II is easily the best ball head I've used (and I've used several other popular brands over the past 30 years). I assumed that no ball head would achieve this level of precision in use; I thought I'd have to get a geared head.� I am super happy to have found this one.� I have the ease of a normal ball head but precision like I've never seen before.� It just doesn't shift while I tighten the ball.� It is a joy to use. Pros:�� - Platform not locked down, easy to use any clamp I want - Extreme precision without noticeable shifting on lockdown - Easy to use all controls with gloves - Easy to see all marks on the panning base - Relatively small and light - Extremely strong (holds my heavy DSLR gear at any silly awkward angle) - Works well in cold temps - Relatively inexpensive compared to most big name brands - good ergonomics No cons yet.� I think this is as good as it gets. I'm thinking about buying a 2nd one as a backup.
