    Camera Head Small Ball with Plate

    Add a professional ball joint head to your tripod or monopod using this Small Ball Fixed Camera Head from Monoprice!

    This camera head is constructed of aviation grade anodized aluminum for superior strength and durability, as well as light weight. It features a quick release sliding plate with a patented safety locking system to ensure that your camera does not accidentally fall off the head, even when the QR lever is released.

    The sliding plate features a standard 1/4"x20 threaded screw mount and rubber pads to ensure a positive grip on your camera, while preventing any scratching caused by slack in the mount. It includes two levels, one horizontal and the other vertical, so that it can be adjusted for exact leveling whether it is used horizontally, or tilted 90 degrees to one side.

    A locking lever on the body locks the ball joint in place, while a corresponding locking knob locks the azimuth adjustment. The base features a mark every 5 degrees of panning, so you can accurately adjust for panoramic shots. The head mounts onto a standard 3/8"x16 threaded head mount screw.

    The head is 3.2" (81mm) tall, weighs 9.2 oz. (260g), and supports up to 22.0 lbs. (10kg) of weight.

    Is the sliding plate ARCA-SWISS compatible? What's the size?

    Are plate and related part of the head following the Arca-Swiss standard?

    BEST ANSWER: The Plates and ballheads are Produced by Nest in the UK

    check with their website
    I have an older Monoprice compact video tripod head (Monoprice 12029) which is no longer available. I'd like to know if the plate (although different in design) might be compatible with this quick release so I don't need to switch plates all the time. The 12029 plate is beveled on all 4 sides, so it's really just determining if the plate bottom is the same dimensions. Could someone measure the bottom of their plate for me?

    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Unfortunately we would not have any information regarding if the plate on the 12029 would fit on the 12024. Looking into it, due to the design of the plates, it would be highly unlikely. Should you wish to purchase it and try it out for yourself, you are welcome to. We do offer a 30 day return policy, so you can return it should it not work out for you. I hope this helps.

    Burely Ballhead for cheap
    Great ball head, very feature rich.

    The tension wheel is a nice touch. same with the independent pan built into the base of the head.

    Bought this one on sale, but i would probably buy another full price if I needed to.

    Very nice, high quality
    This is surprisingly nice for the money, well built and with a good range of adjustment and stop limits. The construction quality is nicer than expected.

    nice quality but needs additional part
    I really like the head I was going to replace 2 on my tripods but found that on both I need to hunt down a 1/4-20 to 3/8-16 bushing. I found these online listed as photography accessories so I assume they are needed often. It would be great if the head came with the bushing.

    Would recommend this product is perfect with my dslr and telephoto lens
    Just tried it out with my 9# telephoto lens and it held up spectacularly no slipping, no wiggling, and when doing photos of far off items brought in close proximity you need the stability of a good tripod and good camera head. Well worth the price
