Product Description

Product Description

The Hama Ball and Socket Head 50mm is a super little ball and socket head that adds versatility to any photographer’s outfit. Designed to fit onto a tripod or stand without an adjustable head, this device allows the photographer to adjust the camera for correct alignment and perfect composition for that once in a lifetime shot.

Adjustment is simply by loosening the locking knob on the side of the base, adjusting the camera or flash gun position and then re-tightening. It can be fitted to amateur and professional tripods and stands alike with its 6.4mm/1/4” threaded camera platform.

At only 50mm high, 30mm wide and weighing in at only 114g, this little ball and socket head is capable of holding most of the lighter weight DSLRs with short – medium range zoom lenses, but not with accessory motor drives attached. It can also be used to mount flashguns in studio situations on tripods or stands to allow correct position of the light path as well as in close-up photography to allow fine adjustment of camera or flash guns.

1 Ball & Socket Head

Can't fault this product. I was drawn to this as I expect many people are, having bought a gorilla pod and realised it needs a ball socket to work to its potential. I took a gamble on this as a cheaper option over the stupidly over-priced joby product. It's solid, reasuringly weighty and seems completely fit for purpose, using it with an SLR zoom gorillapod and my EOS 450D. So far it seems to handle the camera perfectly well.

Just about holds a small DSLR and wide angle lens on a gorillapod.
I use this ball and socket head on a gorillapod for low angle remote shooting. It will hold an EOS20D + 17-40/4 + radio trigger, but I think it might struggle with something heavier. Overall, I'm satisfied with it.

This is not a 50mm ball & socket head, it is a 15mm diameter ball & socket head which is 50mm overall height. The misrepresentation is by Hama not Amazon.It is useless for any camera larger than a digital point and shoot. Do not buy for a DSLR, you will be disappointed even though it looks fantastic in the photo.

I bought this head to go with a SLR gorilla pod. Very pleased with the quality and it makes the gorilla pod more useable.
