    When your shooting an entire day and on the move, you dont want to carry an allen wrench key with you to keep fastening the bottom plate to the ball every hour. The vibration from walking slowly makes the top plate thats attached to the camera slowly slide out. Some places you dont have the space for a rugged tripod so I really wanted this to be a secondary tripod. I bought 2 ballhead x with their gorilla force tripod but now it just end up being a stand for my flash. Most pro equipment is stiff and takes time to break in and just operates smooth like after breaking in a baseball glove. This works really very well initially but wares down extremely fast. I have a Gitzo tripod and I know its very pricy but when you have $5k it gives you peace of mind. I hope JOBY invest more in their prosumer/professional line as their creative and flexible approach is in a fun niche of their own. The pro line should be more quality conscious rather than price conscious.

    When I had a headless gorillapod, I was extremely limited in the framing options for photography. I had to find the exact right tree branch, and if I couldn't get the right shot (say, the stationary object lent itself to holding the camera in portrait orientation when the subject demanded a landscape orientation), I ended up not taking the shot at all. With the Ballhead X, that's no longer an issue. As long as there's a place to stick the gorillapod, I can orient the camera however I want. The ballhead is easy to use, like most ballheads. One know tightens the tension on the ball; a separate, smaller knob controls rotation for panoramas. The quick-release mechanism is arca-compatible, so one plate works for a lot of gear. I use a Peak Design Capture plate on my camera with this ballhead, and it fits nicely. The Ballhead uses all standard threading, so you could get buy with this ballhead on a full grown tripod.

    I teach photography in places like Antarctica where you jump on a zodiac, get smashed by waves on the way into a beach then have a limited time in a cold area to shoot incredible wildlife and landscapes. I had a full Manfrotto carbon setup which is great but I found it very bulky in that environment. The Joby Ballhead X is a wonderful substitute. No it can't do a lot of what my big tripod can do but I found that I ended up taking my Joby all the time. Time-lapse, slow shutter speed, all those things are no problem. As for height, you find yourself putting the Joby in the strangest of places to get height! Not good for a big lens but perfect for primes. I shoot with Nikon, mainly D4 and D800 bodies. This, a 50mm 1.4 and you are very light and shooting very well. Well done Joby

    Product works as expected although the rubber mat on top of the plate can lift off and somewhat separate from the metal base of the plate. Even then it still works fine.

    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    The Ballhead X is very comfortable to use and allows you to quickly change your point of view before a shot. The product remains solid, reliable and very enjoyable to use. I just notice that the ballhead (like the articulations of the GorillaPod) "sticks" to its sheath when it has stayed in the same position for a while. In that case, you may need to force the ballhead to move, but nothing damaging to deplore so far.

    After using a few ball heads from various manufactures, this one is the real deal.  Has separate ball head movement from the horizontal rotation that you won't find on a ball head at this price.  The Arca Swiss style plate works well and I use the newer Ultra plate (sold separately) to keep a mounted Ultra sling, and use the plate that comes with the ball head on my backup body.  Holds a gripped full frame 6D just right.

    I bought the heavy duty tripod and a bunch of accessories this to take on safari and was so disappointed... it was hard to set up and it fell apart twice the first day.  I ended up ditching it and not using it the whole three week trip.  I had such great expectations for the set up... but ended up regretting the purchase and lugging a heavy, useless item the whole time.  ;-(
