It’s not overly heavy and I bought it to mount on top of a monopod. The attraction for me was having the spirit level and so being able to get the camera straight.
The other surprise was that this came with a 1/4 inch insert which when taken out, becomes 3/8 inch. I expected a 3/8 and was going to have to buy an adapter for my monopod.
It rotates as well as tilts so would work really well on a tripod with a ‘friction’ feel. Again, not expected at this price level. The ball and socket doesn’t do what some do, as in drop the camera suddenly when you loosen the adjustments. The slight friction is very useful in order to save the camera from smashing down onto your support.
There is a locking screw on two sides so no need to ‘overtighten’ As you sometimes have to do with ball heads that only have one. You sometimes feel that you need to really screw the single ones down, where this one locks in, with not a great deal of screw pressure from two sides.
Two spirit levels so the camera can be used in panoramic or upright position, retaining the level adjustment.
The plate mechanism is simple and quick to operate so the camera comes off easily. No messing around like you can feel with some plate mechanisms that I’ve used in the past. There are two retaining screws underneath which means that the plate won’t sit with the camera on it, squarely onto a table. That would have been a bonus for those small cameras that you might want to sit on a table.
The plate itself is excellent in that you can move the position of the holding screw by pushing down on the top while unscrewing. Then it comes off of the plate and you can screw it in another slot further forward or further back. Two extra slots are provided to allow you to centre the camera on the plate.
Good finish and in my case, a venture into a cheaper mounting mechanism just to see whether it could match more expensive alternatives that I have. It does and in my opinion is well worth the price, which in the case of Neewer, I have found over and over with their photographic products which I am very familiar with, including lights and microphones. Good company that offer some terrific value products.
This is better than I expected.
I'm impressed with the ball head. The panning action is smooth, and you can lock the tilt movement while panning or vice versa.
There are two knobs adjusting the ball action. One controls the resistance, the other fixes the ball in place. This allows me to adjust the resistance according to the weight of the camera and lens, so that I can move the ball with variable resistance levels.
The clamp has a positive action in securing the plate, and there is a screw restrictor on either end of the supplied plate that prevents the camera sliding out.
The supplied plate is well made and doesn't rattle. The plate has a groove that slides into the base, and a clamp tightens to secure the camera.
When the camera is in the portrait position, a cut out in the ball cup, there doesn't appear to be any creep. I have a heavy tripod though so I'm happy to take the risk of supporting the camera off centre but with a long lens I will use the L plate once I get a secure fit.
The only big con to me are the knobs. The rubber on them isn't integrated so if you want to really give them a good tighten when using a heavy camera, they slip and prevent that. You'd ideally want knurling to give you something to grip on to properly, but for a £20 item i can't fault it too much for skipping on this kind of detail, and for most people using lightweight digital stuff it's a non issue.
The only other nitpick i can think of is the spirit level bubble you see in the picture is poorly placed. You want to have the plate tightening knob facing towards you so you can use it easily, this means once you put a camera on there the bubble level is now under your lens and unusable. Just means you have to level the head with the camera off the body if you want to use it.
Definitely worth a buy if you want to try a ball head for the first time or want a better option than the default head you got one your tripod.
