An ideal ballhead should not add too much weight to an already crammed camera bag, still it must securely hold heavy equipment. Benro’s high-end G3 ballhead makes use of magnesium alloy components to solve this dilemma; weighing 0.69 kg it promises to support a load of up to 40 kg. The 54 mm diameter magnesium ball is fixed by a locking knob with separately adjustable drag for smooth operation. The quick-release clamp is compatible to the Arca-Swiss QR system. An integrated bubble-level helps in aligning the camera and with its 360 degree panning scale the G3 ballhead supports panorama shots.
