    FLM CB-32 reviews

    CB-32 F Ball Head is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good Lightweight Ballhead I ordered one of these ballheads to pair with a set of 3 Legged Thing X5 tripod legs. When these legs are collapsed and stored, the legs are inverted, so I needed a ballhead that would not interfere with inverting the legs. This ballhead is well made and operates smoothly. My heaviest camera/lens combination is a Nikon D7200 with the 80-400mm Nikon zoom, it weighs about 5 pounds. The CB-32 F can easily handle this weight. FLM has developed a unique locking system for their ballheads, the locking knob has a larger friction adjusting ring that fine tunes the level of friction applied to the ball. Once properly adjusted to the camera/lens combo you are using, you can move the camera to frame your shot and the ball head will hold the camera in the new position without having to tighten the locking knob. This is similar in operation to the Manfrotto Hydrostatic ballheads and is very helpful when shooting wildlife. In practice, I have found setting the friction and locking knobs on this head to be a little fiddly, you adjust one knob and then the other until you have the tension set just right. Once it is set correctly, it is a thing of beauty and you are free to concentrate on framing your shots. The mounting plate for the camera is large enough to give you a secure mount but not so large that it will interfere with operation of a quick release system if you chose to use one. The instructions that come with this ballhead are minimal, I found some videos online that show FLM ballheads in operation, once you know what you are trying for, it is not hard to accomplish. This ballhead is not in stock at B & H and may in fact be a special order. The stock status is more coming soon. Mine shipped within 5 days of my order, as usual B & H is great. I cannot think of another ballhead at this price that can match the features of this one, it is very easy to recommend. It has all the functionality of a Manfrotto Hydrostatic head at half the price and weight.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Ball Head, smart design This is my first ball head with the lock ring in addition to the tension ring, and I love it! Works really well. Using this for astrophotography and it holds a lot of weight without slipping.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lock er up! Nice! Good German engineering. Precise, smooth.... But! The knobs takes two or more cranks to be locked. If you're like me, I don't want to waste a second or so, especially if you're shooting people. Expressions come and go in seconds. If you're shooting something stationary, that may be not an issue, but when I was doing product/table top stuff, that extra crank Was a bit annoying still. When you do take the time to lock it, it is LOCKED! Also there's no creep as you lock it, meaning that it locks without any movement to the composition. This is true with the pan lock too. The tension setting is too easy to accidentally move, so that slowed me down a bit more. All in all, it's a quality ball head with smooth functions. I only wish it was more quicker.
