Slik & Cullman ball heads, inexpensive.

Closet cleanout continues. Next up is a pair of slightly cheesy but still useful ball heads. One is a Slik model SBH-120 DQ, a compact head that I used to use on a Slik Sprint Pro II tripod. Nothing fancy and the paint is chipped off in a few places, but it works just fine. Comes with a quick-release plate. Base diameter is 1.5 inches, threaded for 3/8-16 but has a ¼-20 adapter.

The other was once part of a Cullman Magic tripod (the one that folds flat). The current version of this tripod apparently uses a different, but similar, head. This one’s a little more robust than the Slik and would probably support more weight, and is in better shape cosmetically (no paint loss). Also has a quick-release plate. Base diameter of 1.375 inches, threaded for ¼-20 only.

Both of these are fully functional, and would be useful on a small travel tripod. Price: $20 each, both for $35. That includes PayPal fees and USPS shipping in the US.
