I have an Osmo Pocket inside a PolarPro Tripod Mount and I wanted a small ball head attached to the mount. This fits the bill. It’s so small I actually just kept it attached, so I can quickly attach a mini tripod or a battery grip. I twisted off the round plate so it gives me more space to attach the type c cable while it’s on a tripod or grip. I actually have a right angle type c adapter too which helps with my set up some more. I like to hold my Osmo at a slight angle with a handle and this ball head allows me to do that while the type c cable is on. I may buy another to attach a light on the side.
This is by far the best short ball head. I've purchased very many "short" ball heads, but they are about 2 inch tall or taller. This one is 3 quarters inch shorter than any others, and I really like it. The knob is very steady and smooth, and not interfering with the surface of the base that I am attaching this ball head to. The knobs of some other ball heads are too big and I cannot tighten up because they touch the base surface. This one is designed and built right. The bottom female thread is for 1/4 without the ability to convert to 3/8, and I really like it because the screw size converters that come with some ball heads with that option get loose quite often.
I love this baby ball head. It is a quality item. It had to be well made to be so small yet effective. I love it. Very good for rigs or times where size and Weight are an issue. I have big hands, and the knob is super easy to use and holds easily. The ball head is smooth, too. I hesitate to recommend them, because I want them All! Bwaa,ha,ha,haaa!
I bought it for the design, but it didn’t live up to expectations. Couldn’t hold the weight of an iPhone
I wanted something super short for mounting gopro's....this ball head doesn't spin on the mount, so you have to screw it down exactly where you think you'll need to have it for the cutout and ball rotation to give you any framing flexibility...if they could make this size but have it spin on the mount as well, gold...now...zinc.
Love this thing, use it with a canon 80d 24-70 mm but can’t hold it cause of the weight being too much.
We've tried using other ball heads -- that were much larger in size -- to support LED lights. Those cheap plastic ball heads didn't last a year, and can't hold up the weight of the lights. The koolehaoda ballheads are smaller, sturdier, heavier, and all around better made. Most of all, the actually hold up our lights at the angles we want. And they feel like they'll last many many years.
Got this to use on top of my compact monopod together with mirroless camera. The ball is so small that no matter how much I tighten it (via also small-sized knurled knob), my camera rotates due to the ball slipping when I handle it. Being on a monopod, I was not demanding much, but this is just too incapable of being clamped tightly enough and perhaps is better used for small lightweight action cameras or other gear.
