Re: Ballhead Advice

Well I ordered and received the Benro B00 directly from China.  Took a little over a week to arrive  Just as previously mentioned, this is a great small fully functioning ballhead.  It also works well with the Really Right Stuff camera plates (clips on not just slide on).  Got it through XBay for $65 US.  Much less then every other ballhead mentioned and very well made.  With just a little tightening, the camera can be freely moved by hand and stays put when released.  Right now I have tested it on my GX1 with a Panny 9-18mm lens. Will advised when I had the chance to test it with something heavier.  Weighs 228 grams and has a bubble level outside on the clamp where it is easily seen with the camera on.

I plan on using it with the Panny 100-300, when I get the lens, but I also have ordered the lens collar from Germany so that the camera and lens is better balance on the ballhead.
