Does Sirui Have Photo and Video Heads and How Much Do They Cost?

Anamika Hossain

The best ball heads are arguably an unsung hero of photography. While everyone who's spent any time taking photos will recommend the best tripods, and probably fall over themselves to argue the merits of this brand or that, the humble ball head does get forgotten about. A good ball head can be transformative for your shooting, and it's worth investing in one rather than relying on the basic head bundled with your tripod.
The best thing is to pick a head with a larger ball diameter: around 40 or 50mm is a good compromise between stability and portability. Of course, if you're using a small camera with diminutive lenses, you can probably get away with something smaller. But fancy ball heads will provide functionality like smoother panning movement and well-engineered quick-release systems, often based on the Arca Swiss standard. Once you get used to stuff like this, it's hard to remember how you got on without it!

Sirui presents the best series of photo and video heads that will fill everyone's checklist of owning a ball head. 

The price of the photo and video heads cost between $49.90 USD to $499.90 USD. This price includes delivery and warranty.

Now, lets move forward and let us introduce you to each series of photo and video heads.

Starting with the Sirui SIRUI B-00 Photo Ball Head. The price of this ball head is $49.90 USD
The B-00 Series Mini Ball Head is an Arca-type compatible, anodized aluminum head that weighs 7.2 oz and has a load capacity of 11 lb.It is available in three colors, Blue(B00B), Black(B00K) and Red(B00R).  The 2.76" tall ball head has a portrait notch on the side of the head that allows an attached camera to move in 90° angle, for vertical shooting. At the base, a scale with index direction marks enables you to accurately move a camera in a 360° pan and lock into place with its independent panning lock. The ball head also includes the TY-C10 quick release plate, which can slide out by opening the head's clamp, but a safety-lock release button needs to be pressed to release the plate as well.

Next up is the Sirui G-X Series Ball Heads. The price of the ball heads cost between $99.90 USD and $119.90 USD. 

This Series has two photo heads.

The Sirui G-10KX Ball Head is an extremely sturdy head with separate control knobs for pan, tilt, and tension, plus an Arca-style clamp for the included quick-release plate. The price of this ball head is $99.90 USD.

The Sirui G-20KX Ball Head is an extremely sturdy head with separate control knobs for pan, tilt, and tension, plus an Arca-style clamp for the included quick-release plate.The price of this ball head is $119.90 USD.

The ball locks down extremely tightly thanks to the double-bevel locking system which allows support of cameras up to 44 lb and safe 90° tilting for portrait orientation. The quick-release clamp features a secondary release button that prevents any inadvertent disengagement of the camera/plate from the clamp, thereby adding to the head's overall security and stability.
Three separate controls (pan, tilt and lock) allow a photographer to exercise extremely fine control over the orientation of the camera, whether it's a DSLR, 35mm, medium-format camera, or even a camcorder. Pan, for instance, can be adjusted while the tilt stays locked, enabling precise movement that's measurable via degree markers for panoramic photography at the panning base.
