    Camera Head Large Ball with Plate

    Add a professional ball joint head to your tripod or monopod using this Large 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 3.8" (97mm) tall, weighs 16.6 oz. (470g), and supports up to 44.1 lbs. (20kg) of weight.

    I have lost the quick attach plate. Can it be replaced? If so, with what, as I'm not finding anything suitable on monoprice's website?
    A shopper on Jun 8, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately we would not carry the quick attach plate separate from the unit. I do apologize for any inconvenience.
    Does anyone have a photo of the bottom of the mounting plate? I'd like to attach a camera strap to the mounting plate when the camera isn't mounted on a tripod.. using a Black Rapid strap. Does the mounting plate accommodate a strap like this?
    Chris L on Jun 2, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I use a Black Rapids Strap and use it on my Canon 7D. I also use the camera head you are asking about. If you leave the plate attached to the camera body you can not use the Black Rapids Strap; they both use the same mount. When I use my canon 400 mm telephoto I can leave the mounting plate attached to the lens ( with a 400mm lens, the lens has a mounting bracket and that is what is used to attach it to the tripod via the plate) which leaves the mounting area at the bottom of the camera free for the strap. Hope this helps.

    Non-standard ballhead
    I've had this ball head and the Monoprice large carbon fiber tripod for several months now.

    The quick release system is great when considered on it's own merits. I really could go on and on about the quality of the build and design, but the cons are simply far to much for me to see past.

    Monoprice is using a non standard plate and clamp on these ball heads. The clamp bed is easily several millimeters wider than arca swiss or RC-2 plates. The ball head also has a non-standard screw securing the clamp to the ball head, so it makes fitting an arca swiss clamp to it a fidgety process.



    Minus 2 for missing features. Minus 1 for Monoprice not detailing this on the product page.

    PROS: Quality build and materials

    Functions as advertised



    CONS: Non-standard plate and clamp system

    Not compatible with arca swiss or RC-2 systems

    Heavy Duty, wins performance per dollar
    This ball head will reasonably hold a full frame DSLR with a heavy telephoto, even at odd angles. Per dollar it is fantastic. If I were being picky, slightly less lash on the panning bearing would be delightful.

    PROS: Solid. Heavy. Does what it should, smooth, adjustable resistance.

    CONS: Very minor lash when panning.
    Wonderfully inexpensive for the amount of metal and close machining.
