VANGUARD’s top-of-the-line BBH Series ball head delivers in all of the key areas – accuracy, precision, convenience and ease of use. No matter the camera’s position, its Rapid Level System enables you to guide the camera to be perfectly level with the base, quickly and efficiently. When the level position is attained, BBH holds your camera in place. This, coupled with use of its two bubble levels to ensure the tripod’s balance, enables perfectly accurate 360-degree panoramic photography and videography. This magnesium ball head has a unique open body design that helps maintain a lighter weight. The ball also boasts a scratch-free, oxidized surface for ultra smooth moment. BBH can be positioned at accurate 90-degree angles in one second.

The next level
VANGUARD’s BBH ball heads feature an innovative Rapid Level System that allows users to instantly position their camera level with the base of the head. When the Rapid Level System is engaged by sliding the designated orange switch to the right, an internal guide fixes the ball into place once the level position is achieved. This makes switching from portrait orientation to landscape very simple and quick to do. Used in combination with BBH’s two bubble levels, this system ensures a precisely level platform for panoramic shooting. Once fixed, securely lock the ball into place with its oversized locking knob – which is also handy for panning.
BBH-200 ball head features a universal, 38mm quick release clamp system with large locking knob and VANGUARD’s QS-60 quick shoe with 38mm base. This allows for easy compatibility with other heads and release plates using this popular system. Users can further customize their kit with the use of different size or specialty plates with the same 38mm base, such as the larger QS-61 from VANGUARD. They can also conveniently keep their camera mounted to QS-60 when switching to other heads using this system, such as VANGUARD’s GH-200 or TBH series ball heads.
What's more, BBH-200 was named Best Accessory 2012 by the Technical Image Press Association (TIPA). The prestigious award is voted on by the editors of nearly 30 of the world’s top photography magazines. According to the TIPA, voters were won over by the ball head's innovative Rapid Level System, stating, "Vanguard's unique 'Rapid Level System' in their new BBH-200 Ball Head makes life easier for photographers."
