It works great for holding a speed light, a point and shoot, and a small DSLR.

I use it with a car window mount for taking pictues while sitting in my truck. I slao use it on my tripod.
I first starting using Manfrotto tripods and accessories 30 years ago and they continue to be my go-to source for camera mounting both professionally and for my personal photos. Parts continue to be well designed, well made, good looking, good feeling, and reasonably priced. This little ball head is no exception.
