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 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
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.
I had read good things about this little product and when I decided to try some tripod landscape work with my 1D MK4 I needed a ball head type system. I have not been disappointed with this easy to use, light and what appears to be a very strong device. Smooth ball socket operation as well.
For its weight, it's a very competent head. Easily holds its rated weight and the pan fluidity isn't bad for a head so small, although if you want better you'd want a larger version. I've used Giottos and other heads, for years now, and I like the Giottos best.
Nice little ballhead, well crafted. Not suitable for telephoto work.
What a great ball head to use with my new 055CXPRO4 4-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs (Black) by Manfrotto. It fit perfectly and was easy to operate. I like the panning function and the easy to turn knobs for friction control as well as the locking control.
I bought this for an inexpensive tripod setup I was assembling. Overall I've been pleased in general with the feel and usability of the head, but honestly they must be smoking crack if they think it'll hold 13 pounds. I've used my Nikon D7000 w/18-200 and had it creep and wiggle and slump over.
