Announcement of Demon DB-30 Mini Ball Head from Desmond

Demon DB-30 Mini Ball Head Overview

Desmond Photographic Distribution has recently introduced the smallest member of their alternative family of Demons.
The Demon DB-30 Mini ball head despite its small size, promises silky smooth operation with affirmative locking.
As usual with Desmond products, the DB-30 maintains a great value for money ratio compared to similarly priced ball heads.
