The Sunwayfoto XB-44 Ballhead Review
What a great past 2 weeks it has been in my world of photographic subjects, and it was perfect timing to put the Sunwayfoto XB-44 Low-Profile, High Performance Ballhead through its paces!
A quick recap of those events are: a very late blooming of a beautiful Lily shot in HDR, The Majestic and Powerful Tahquamenon Falls in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, and the current Supermoon, not seen since 1948!
Sunwayfoto has been manufacturing photographic support equipment for many years, and their product line is a very compete one. This review is focusing on one of their Flagship Ballheads’ the low-profile XB-44. It is the SMALLER one in the XB series, but still extremely strong (40kg load), ROCK SOLID and SILKY SMOOTH! It is an Ellipsoidal, Progressive design, so as the ball is tilted it ‘tightens’ up a bit to reduce camera flop while maintaining total control.
As an owner of other Sunwayfoto gear, I have come accustomed to and appreciate their packaging. Like their products, the packaging is all business, no frills, very strong and protective!
