DETAILS

The Really Right Stuff BH-40 Mid-Size Ballhead is designed specifically for large camera and long lens setups up to an 18 lb load capacity. This ballhead comes with a Really Right Stuff BP-CS Conventional Plate that is 2.8" long and suitable for most cameras. If you need a heftier plate for super telephoto lenses, please consider renting the Really Right Stuff L84 Fore-Aft Plate, which is 3.6" long. It pairs well with the Really Right Stuff TQC-14 Series 1 Carbon Fiber Tripod or Really Right Stuff TVC-24L Series 2 Carbon Fiber Tripod, which are rentable separately. If you're using the Really Right Stuff TVC-34L Versa Series 3 Carbon Fiber Tripod then we recommend the Really Right Stuff BH-55 Full Size Ballhead instead of this mid-size one.

Crafted from aluminum and stainless steel, the BH-40 is ergonomic and sports a low profile. The knobs are oversized, tactile, and allow for quick, easy, and intuitive adjustments while the laser-engraved millimeter scale on the clamp jaw ensures precise positioning. There is one 90º notch to drop your setup into for portrait orientation and the panning base is laser-engraved at 2.5º intervals over a full 360º and features a drum and brake design for comfortable locking. The ergonomic, locking T-knob allows 45º tilting in all directions while the smallest control knob works in concert with the main lock knob to set a minimum amount of resistance on the ball joint at all times, independent of the main lock knob being fully loosened or not.

This ballhead delivers solid performance in all weather conditions thanks to its rugged build. The markings, oversized knobs, high load capacity, and low profile makes it an ideal choice for professional and enthusiast photographers alike.
