Great Value

This is a great value. I shot a wedding with it this weekend. It worked great. I know other companies make similar products for considerably more. This product does exactly what I expect. The only changes I would make would be to the quick release. Those type of plates are difficult to mount. I'd prefer that ones that slide into place. I knew this when I bought it. Seems to be very stable and easy to use. The clamp is almost perfect. The only times it slips is when I have a long lens that is ...

This is a great value. I shot a wedding with it this weekend. It worked great. I know other companies make similar products for considerably more. This product does exactly what I expect. The only changes I would make would be to the quick release. Those type of plates are difficult to mount. I'd prefer that ones that slide into place. I knew this when I bought it. Seems to be very stable and easy to use. The clamp is almost perfect. The only times it slips is when I have a long lens that is extended completely and the mount is almost completely on it's side. That would be the weakest place on any grip of this sort. The bubble level is also great. It can set my camera position with a release of a grip. I no longer have to adjust the tripod legs worrying if my camera is level. I just release the grip when the bubble is in the middle. Nikon D90 Sigma 18-200 lens Nikon 55mm 1.4 Nikon SB-600

Great product

By

This pistol grip ballhead is used with my Sony A57 and 28 75 lenses and so far it has worked very good. Holds position very well and is easy to use. Like the quick release feature and is an excellent accessory for the money. Very pleased with the purchase.

Poor quality product

By

Being my first Ball Tripod Head I was really happy about it at the start. Has a wide range of motion and easy to use. However, after only to months of light to normal usage the clamp that holds the platform on has already broken. Adorama informed me to contact the company directly about repair or replacement, but after phone calls and emails I have not heard anything back from them. If a company cannot stand behind the poor quality product they put out, I will no longer use them. I recommend avoiding this and any other product put out by SUNPAK.

A solid camera mount

By

The Sunpak Pistol Grip Ball Head is a very solid camera mount. I was especially pleased with its ease of use: Squeeze and hold the trigger to position the camera; release the trigger and the camera locks rigidly in position. It will securely hold my Pentax K-5 with a heavy Sigma 120-400mm lens. This is a very good ballhead at an attractive price. Highly recommended.

Love this pistol grip

By

This is the first pistol grip I have owned. I mounted it on an old tripod and it's like it gave it new life. So simple to use, just press the trigger and move it anywhere you want.

Good enough but not sure how long will i

By

This works as intended, the one issue i find is attaching and removeing the plate is rather difficult. also the craftsmanship appear rathre poor and im not sure how long it will last. For the price i paid [$] I'm happy with the purchase.

Sunpak gets the job done

By

"I have been a published professional photographer since 1972. Took a hiatus for 7 years because of sickness. I am now hopefully better and I am updating to digital. This has to be one of THE most "MUST HAVES" in your photo equipment. I photograph artwork at times, so therefore I use a tripod with the Sunpak Pistol Grip Ball Head. It makes my life easier. It is extremely sturdy and very good quality as I would expect from Sunpak. It has a good weight to it and it is easy to operate. If there was a rating page I would give it all 10 out of 10 stars. I used the Sunpak to do the attached photo. Because of the muliti debth of the artwork, I have to be able to position the camera just so and do time lapsed photography for her. That is the way the artist can get the colors she wants!"

It was a good product right up until the locking lever broke only a couple of weeks after I bought it.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  will this work on the Sunpak Compact Mono Pod 2 ?
LYNN W  i use the ball head with quick release on a vanguard tracker ap-364 it works the quick realease function allows me to remove camera quickley.I it for action sports shooting.
Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
JOHN I  Good reviews, ease of use, and low cost compared to the alternatives (e.g. Manfrotto at $140-$200).
Shopper  will this work with veldon 480 tripod too?
JOHN I  I assume you mean Velbon, not Veldon. The answer is yes, if you can remove the head from your Velbon tripod by unscrewing it from the rest of the tripod. I have an older Velbon tripod (not the 480) and the head unscrews on a standard 1/4-inch thread (same thread as on the bottom of your camera). With other brands of tripod, notably Bogen, Manfrotto and Dynatran (Amvona), and probably others, the head attaches to the tripod with a 3/8-inch screw. The Sunpak pistol grip will work with either size thread, as a 3/8-to-1/4 adapter bushing is included. Remove the bushing with a large flat-blade screwdriver or a coin if your tripod has a 3/8-inch screw thread for attaching the head.
