Hi,

Can those who been to very low temp places (-20 deg C) share which brand of ballhead that were used and does not become seized.

Thanks.

Regards,

Used my Manfrotto 488rc2 in -25 deg C and did not sieze up. worked perfectly. Just that my hands felt as if they are going to drop off.

Daredevil bro,

Thanks for the feedback.
I tried my new Sirui ballhead but it seized.
Other than that low temp experience the ball works fine.

Travel to any cold region this winter?
