Nice ball head – Genuine Ruby 005H Ball-Head with Quick Release Plate Adapter - Black (Loading-4KG) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
- Very solid - Smooth movement - Independent tightening screw for horizontal turn and ball. - Tightening screws are very effective (I think hydraulic)
Cons:
The quick release mechanism is solid but somehow uncomfortable, you have to slide the plate from one side and once in place , tighten the fixing screw. To release, untighten the screw, push the button and release horizontally.
Other:
Good ballhead, not best I´ve seen but quite good anyway.
Bottomline:
I´m using it with SKU.54027 tripod, replacing the original ballhead. Sometimes I attach the original one in top of this to gain height and take advantage of the better quick release mechanism.
