The Oben BA-2 Ball Head
is a sturdy, lightweight aluminum ball head for photography that enables both pan and tilt adjustments by way of a single-lever lock. With a load capacity of 26.45 lb, the BA-2 head will support DSLR cameras even as they're equipped with long, heavy telephoto lenses and multiple accessories.
The BA-2 head's single-action knob allows you to unlock all axes of movement in one fell swoop, so you can quickly orient your camera properly, retighten the knob, and return to shooting. The ball-locking mechanism is remarkably strong for reliably stable performance.
The included quick-release plate attaches to your camera via its standard 1/4"-20 screw. A retractable, removable video pin provides additional stability for camcorders. The quick-release plate easily snaps and locks into place on the BA-2 head. The safety lock on the quick-release mechanism prevents the camera from disengaging inadvertently.
The head pans a full 360°, and degree markers around its base help you properly orient your shooting
