Nice lightweight ball head for lighter gear
on March 29, 2013
I Got the Benro BH00 ball head for my monopod, because my tripod is a Benro that uses this same head. So I can just mount the quick-release PH-07 on my Nikon D5000 and leave it there. The ball head is light weight, so it doesn't bog me down when carrying my monopod. My camera is an APS-C DSLR body with lenses that each weigh under two pounds, so the ball head doesn't have to support a huge amount of weight. I wouldn't expect this head to support those monster teles that serious birders use, but for my equipment it is perfectly adequate. The head attaches to the monopod or tripod with a 3/8"-16 screw, so if your 'pod doesn't have a 3/8" attachment, you will need to buy an inexpensive adapter along with the ball head. The single lever control of the ball is perfect for a monopod, where I want to level the head once I have steadied myself in position. There's really no need for a separate pan control with a monopod, so this head is all I need.
