(From company literature) Really Right Stuff BH-55 Ball Head.


  • Ergonomic design gives superior handling and unsurpassed reliability.
  • Lowest profile in its class.
  • Large main locking knob incorporates stainless steel ballbearings for a lifetime of silky smooth control.
  • Dual drop-notches allow maximum flexibility for positioning the camera.
  • Micrometer tension adjustment is repeatable and absolutely reliable.
  • Precision panning base is finely laser-engraved at 2.5 degrees intervals and features our unique drum & brake design for effortless locking.
  • All components are of the finest Really Right Stuff quality, machined from solid aircraft aluminum or stainless steel for maximum durability and minimum weight.
