This head features a heavily anodized aluminum ball that is hollowed out in order to cut back on its weight. With a slimmer and lighter structure design the body shell follows the idea, yet offers increased firmness and hardness.
With a single lock-down control knob and simple round camera platform, cost and weight are reduced further.
Measuring 3.1" (80 cm) in height and a tripod mount thread size of 3/8", (a 1/4"-20 reducer bushing is also provided) this pro series II ball head has been carefully designed and manufactured to precisely position the camera easily and securely and is rated to support up to 11 lbs (5 kg).

Mounting Cameras, Flashes, reflectors Works extremely well and is lightweight for its weight capacity. No issues so far.
This item works great with my monopod and video camera. I'm sure it will do equally as well with my DSLR. I have not discovered any "cons" to mention.
