    Best Head I've used - Perfect in every way - Thank you

    Perfect Compact System Head
    If you are looking for the perfect lightweight head, here it is!
    Quality engineering and beautiful finish with all the features you could wish for - Details such as:

    1. The lock knobs positioned at 1/3ds so that tripod legs fold neatly between them

    2. Panoramic head above the ball so even if the body of the head is not level the camera will Pan-level. (An L-Bracket attached to the camera would also enable portrait format panoramas)

    3. Arca-Swiss compatible QR

    4. Smooth edged control knobs with good grip without resorting to perishable rubber

    5. The ball adjustment knob has excellent friction control and easily locks the ball without resorting to force

    To further improve this head I would like to see a larger and therefore more sensitive bubble level

    I have used many top quality heads, and this one is up there with them - A bargain!

    I bought the CBH-40 specifically for the panoramic head built into the clamp, and the Area Swiss compatibility. Considering the high price of similar heads on the market, this is really well made, the gears are positive and smooth with excellent friction control, and it is finished nicely with the feel of a much more expensive piece of kit.

    Overall, I'm very please and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a panoramic head at a bargain price.

    Value for money

    This is the third Novo Ball Head that I've bought. I use an LGH 25 on my small travel tripod, an LGH-55 on my big Feisol tripod, and this CBH-40 on my day to day tripod (Feisol 3442). All are well engineered, and reliable, and I'm very pleased with them. Also, they seem very good value for money.

    Quality product

    I own Arca Swiss Monoball PO, Vanguard BBH100 & Manfrotto 468MG Hydrostatic heads & the Novo was bought for my spare tripod, it's now on my everyday tripod I was really surprised at the quality, it's just a very good head and for the price (about a 1/4 of the Arca) it really is seriously great value, highly recommended.
