choosing a new tripod.

BALLHEADS
Which ballhead should you buy?

Really Right Stuff designs and manufactures professional grade


tripod ballheads that can support heavy loads, lock solidly,
and move smoothly. All of our ballheads are faster to use and
inherently more stable than 3-axis “pan-tilt” tripod heads.
MID-SIZE BH-40 Tripods with ballheads are also much easier to carry and pack
40mm ball for most gear
than tripods with pan-tilt heads—no long, protruding handles.
pp20-21
A Really Right Stuff ballhead will help you learn to love your
tripod. Aiming and horizon leveling can be accomplished as
one instinctive motion, and rigid lockup takes just a quick twist
of one control. Our full-size and mid-size ballheads also offer
variable “drag” (tension) that makes them easy to control.

The Really Right Stuff quick-release system offers implicit


advantages, and all Really Right Stuff ballheads can be

About the shot: The Nikon 20 0 - 40 0mm/f4 VR lens was perfect for

onto the limb.

Equipment: Nikon D3S camera; 20 0 - 40 0mm/f4 VR II lens with


LCF‑14 replacement foot; mounted on PG - 02 LLR Pano - Gimbal head,
TA -2- LB leveling base on MC- 34 monopod; secured to safari vehicle
with prototype Safari Rig components.
