About 3Pod H1 BallHead

The H1 ballheadis the first in the family from 3POD heads with a wide variety ofphoto / video tripods and monopod solutions, and sports an anodized wear-resistant finish. A universal mounting pin in the ballhead's 1/4" international standard clamping quick release plate lets you attach most camera types with minimal adjustment required.

In line with all 3POD's signature ballheadgems, the H1 employs state-of the art ergonomic design, hydraulic damping for flawlessly smooth movement and jitter-free panning.

Four knobs located on the clamp and body of the ballhead control locking and positioning. The uppermost locks the quick release plate firmly in place, while the lower three control large-angle adjustment, small-angle adjustment, and horizontal adjustment of the ball mechanism.

At the base a convenient 360º dial makes for easy, perfect positioning throughout the ballhead's full range of panoramic movement, ideal for panoramic stitching projects.

Great buy

Appears to be very well built. Sturdy. The arca-swiss compatible quick release is what I was looking for. The included quick release plate is a bonus.

Works as expected


from Lufkin, TX  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This is the first ballhead I've ever owned but I must say it works as expected. I like the build-in levels this will be very helpful out in the field.


Excellent product for the price


from Lexington, KY  -  Photo Enthusiast

I'm using this on a Gorrilla pod, and I didn't want to spend huge dollars, but wanted something stable. This works well with my Nikon D610, and a 70-200mm 2.8 mounted.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  I have a sunpak 9001 UT tripod and want to replace the existing head with a ball head. When I take of the existing head there is no screw at the top to screw a ball head onto. There is a mushroom head on top so the ball head would need to slide over the mushroom and a locking screw would be needed to hold the head on. Will this ball head work on my Sunpak?
LESLIE M  The head-to-tripod connection on this head is 3/8"-16 Female.
Richard V  Is the quick release compatible with Really Right Stuff camera bracket?
JOSEPH C. M  I am sorry I can not help, I sent my back, it was to small.
Shopper  Is the quick release on the 3Pod H1 arca compatible?
DARRYL E  It looks like it but I haven't tried it compatible with what
