VANGUARD BBH-100 ball head highlights

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.

Highly compatible
BBH-100 ball head features a universal Arca compatible, 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-300 or TBH series ball heads.

I love this head. I tried several other known brands before finally trying this one and I'm happy I moved away from the name brands to this. It's well-built (I had a Manfrotto break as I was tightening the camera plate to the head), it worked out the box and I like the many levels. I also like the switch that makes it easy to level the ball, I appreciate the pan function and the screws work well.

The only thing I have a gripe about is the plate holder--I have a hard time getting my camera to attach correctly. I'm afraid one of these days I'll drop my camera when trying to attach it to the head. Other than that, I'm quite pleased with this purchase.
