For those of you arriving here at Enthusiast Photographer via a web-search, I’ve completed my first review of the head. It can be found here. I’ve got two big trips in the next couple of months to Europe and Asia, so it will get a good workout and I’ll bring back some additional comments and hopefully some good images!
A few weeks ago on one of my photography forums, a representative from Sunwayfoto created a thread asking for people interested in reviewing their newest ball heads. Since I’d seen these particular products in person at CES and thought they looked very nice, I raised my hand and was lucky enough to be selected to review their newest XB-44. This and the big-brother model XB-52 were recently added to the website at B&H for pre-order.
I’d gotten a note this morning that the package was out for delivery, but it turned out my wife was away when they came by, so I was bummed. But lo and behold, they came back by in the late afternoon! Thanks DHL!
Unfortunately, I’ve got a busy weekend planned this weekend and a bunch of travel coming up through next weekend, so I won’t be able to do much more than post some photos and give some general thoughts in the next few days. In the meantime, I figured I’d post a first photo and let you know a fuller review was on the way! It should be fun to compare it to my RRS BH-40!
