Features full-size sure-grip knobs (same size as our BH-1) for easy control, even while wearing gloves! Constructed of aluminium, brass, and stainless steel for rugged dependability and light weight. The price includes a special universal Arca-style quick release body/lens plate worth £29.95, so you can immediately upgrade to quick-release convenience. For use with lenses smaller than 300mm f2.8 or 400mm f4.5

BH-3 Ball Head main features:

  • Weighs just 20 ounces!

  • Ball Diameter: 1.65 inches
  • Pan Base Diameter: 2.4 inches
  • Ball tilt: 45 & 90 degrees
  • Pan Base: 360 degree rotation with positive lock
  • Five-year warranty
  • Kirk's compact BH-3 panning ball head delivers American-made quality, precise handling, and rugged stability...guaranteed!

Kirk Enterprises now offers compact precision ball head designed for a lifetime of trouble-free performance. Featuring the same efficiency and rugged construction that have made the Kirk BH-1 ball head an industry standard, the BH-3 features a Satisfaction Guarantee and Five-year Warranty.

Weighing only 20 ounces (compared to 32 ounces for the BH-1), this ball head features the same silky smooth ball-and-socket action as its big brother. You have fast aiming and framing control just by releasing and locking a single knob. Two smaller knobs control the 360-degree panning base and the amount of ball friction.

Both the BH-1 and BH-3 feature quick-release platforms that accept all Arca-style plates and mounts. To avoid corrosion, all external components are crafted from tough 6061-T aircraft aluminium including the solid, captive-design knobs, and the internal metal parts are stainless steel and brass. The ballcup is a self-lubricating Delrin composite, and the tripod socket accepts 3/8-inch thread. This could be the last compact ball head you ever need to buy!
