I have used this head for a few years. And although the ease of the knobs is great and it holds my nikon 55-300 just fine, my big complaint is that I always need an allen wrench with me to tighten the location where the plate and the ballhead meet.
This is a small, well-built ballhead and is serving me well. It's perfect for my micro four thirds system. However, no product is perfect and there are two negatives I've found that other purchasers should be aware of:1)The panning base is extremely stiff in cold weather.
I bought this panning tripod head to use on a Manfrotto Befree Compact tripod because the head that comes with that nice piece of gear doesn't have a separate panning function. This is the fourth Giottos tripod head I've purchased and like the others works perfectly in this application-iphoneography...
I was looking for a medium size ballhead that would securely hold my mid-size camera, an Olympus OM-D E-M1. The Giottos MH-1302 with quick release works perfectly for this application. The clamps hold the camera with the 300mm (600 mm in 35mm equivalent terms) lens very securely.

I wanted a small ballhead for my Panasonic G5 and G1 mirrorless cameras. I had another brand which was not satisfactory for the longer telephoto lenses. This one holds extremely well. In fact, I put my Canon 40D with a 200mm F2.8 on it and is was steady as a rock.
Really intuitive. Does just what you want. Easy , firm adjustments, no hastle. small - medium size
I use this with a small carbon fiber travel tripod. Not only is this much smoother and precise than the ball head I had before, but it's much more stable. I have my own quick release system so didn't buy the version with quick release.
Great Ballhead that can hold up to 13 lbs. In my opinion Tension Control is a must, Panning Lock is additional treat. This ballhead greatly complements my lightweight MT-8350 MT Series Professional Carbon Fiber Tripod. Arca Swiss compatible.
Lightweight and comfortable Ballhead for the slider.
