ProMediaGear BH50c40 Ball Head Overview

The ProMediaGear BH50c40 Ball Head is the same as the ProMediaGear BH50c60. The main difference is the clamp type as the name implies.

Just like the BH50c60, this ball head provides a solid grip on the camera while providing precise and smooth movements.

Build quality is great as it is made of solid T6061 aluminum. This makes it lightweight and durable. At only 1.54 lbs, it has the same weight as the other variant. It is easy to carry and pack.

The Arca-compatible clamp makes this ball head perfect for your photography system. You can place any camera or accessory as long as it has an Arca-compatible plate.

Panning from left to right is smooth - all thanks to the independent panning knob. This knob is also repositionable so you can move it depending on where you are comfortable with it.

Just like other tripod heads, this ball head has a standard tripod mount. Also, it has a built-in bubble level and laser engraved markings for precise positioning.

Shooting from landscape to portrait is easier too with the two drop slots.

Like the majority of other ProMediaGear products, the BH50c40 ball head has a 5-year warranty. Get yours today and take your photography to the next level.
