Vanguard BBH-200 ball head for tripods

The Vanguard BBH-200 is an easy to use ball head for any tripod. The open body design hides it’s deceptive strength. With a max load of 44 lbs (20 kg), this head will support pretty much any configuration you need.  I put the BBH-200 through it’s paces with a Canon 7D with a battery grip and a 70-200mm f4 IS.

Vanguard BBH Ballheads

In addition to the new GH-200 pistol-grip ball head, Vanguard also had its new BBH Series of pro ball heads on display at CES 2012.

I’ve been a big fan of Vanguard ball heads since I picked up the SBH-250 a couple of years ago.  The new BBH Series builds on the good stuff from the SBH Series and then adds some more oomph for the professional touch and feel. [click to continue…]

Vanguard GH-200

On my last day at CES 2012, I stopped by the Vanguard booth to check out some of their new products.  I’ve been a Vanguard fan since I bought the SBH-250 ball head a couple of years or so back.

One of the new items from Vanguard this year is an updated version of their pistol-grip ball head.  The GH-100 was last year’s model, which I’ve used and enjoyed quite a bit – although I have neglected to publish a review on it.  The GH-200 is the new model and it improves on the few minor complaints I had about the otherwise solid GH-100.  In essence, you can take this as a review of both units with some notes on what makes the GH-200 an improved offering.
