Details BH-40 Ball Head Overview A RRS ball head is the best choice for all general photography, and will give you fast and accurate control and solid support of your camera or lens. Aiming and horizon leveling can be accomplished as one instinctive motion, and rigid lockup takes just a quick twist of one control. As a result, our ball heads are faster to use and inherently more stable than 3-axis pan-tilt tripod heads. Since the ball head profile is smaller and lacks the protruding handles, they are also much easier to carry and pack.


  • Patented lever-release clamp for fast and easy mounting
  • Ergonomic design gives superior handling and unsurpassed reliability
  • Lowest height profile in its class
  • Knobs are captive and uniquely shaped, making operation "by feel" very intuitive
  • 90 degree drop-notched allows maximum flexibility for positioning the camera for portrait-orientation or extreme angle shots
  • Micrometer drag tension adjustment is repeatable and absolutely reliable
  • Precision panning base is finely laser-engraved at 2.5 degree intervals and features our unique drum and brake design for effortless locking
  • Laser-engraved millimeter scale offers precise centering and positioning within the clamp jaw
