FLM CB-58 overview

  • 1Description

The CB-58FTR Ball Head from FLM is a high capacity tripod head which features FLM's patented Tilt-Lock function and an independent 360° panning base.

The CB-58FTR stands 4.4" high and features a maximum load capacity of 132.3 lb, while weighing in at 29 oz. The dual lock design uses two separate knobs to control the movement of the ball and the 360° panning base, giving the user greater control. A separate tension knob adjusts the drag on the ball, allowing the user to slow or hasten the re-positioning of their camera. The FTR series also utilizes FLM's patented Tilt-Lock function which allows the user to lock the ball in all directions but one, allowing the ball to move along a straight line similar to a pan/tilt head.

The top mounting plate is covered in a friction reducing cork layer, which protects your equipment and prevents unwanted shifting and twisting. The top mounting thread is a reversible 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 stud which can be flipped to accommodate most cameras and camcorders.

    FLM CB-58 reviews

    CB-58FTR Professional Series Ball Head is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Near perfection I own this ballhead for a month now and using it out in the field already showed me that it has very good qualities, the main one being its sturdiness, but one major flaw that explain the 4 stars rating. I come from an Acratech GP ballhead that has many good features, but was slipping all the time with longer lens (Sigma 70-200mm or Sigma 150-500mm). The FLM is a big piece of metal with a large diameter ball. As I said, its main quality is its sturdiness with long telephoto lens. It doesn't slip at all. But one of its features is the possibility to set the level of friction of the ball: the main friction knob has a stop ring around it, so that you can adjust the right level of friction and set it with this stop ring. When using the ballhead in the field, you just have to unscrew the main knob until you reach the stop point set with the stop ring and there you have your ideal level of friction. Very handy system. But the problem is that there is no way to lock the stop ring. Whenever you take the ballhead out of your bag, or walk with your camera and ballhead mounted on your tripod, the stop ring will loosen because you keep hitting it and it will lose its adjustment with time. The idea is great, but the design of the system needs unfortunately more thought. There should be a way to lock the stop ring, unless there is something I don't understand in the way the system works. Otherwise, it would have been the perfect ballhead.
