I bought this along with a new Gitzo tripod. I like the tripod but am VERY UNHAPPY with the ballhead. The issue is that it uses the GS5370B Quick Release Plate. Everything works fine until you turn it to the portrait/vertical position. Then it is terrible.
A perfect fit for the Explorer Tripod. Well made smooth ops . What else can I say. Highly recommended !!!!
I had a standard tripod that I wrestled with each time I tried to adjust my camera's position. I finally got tired of fighting it and the Gitzo tripod and ball head. What a difference! It's so easy to reposition my camera wherever I need it.
great for macro-awkward spots, little effort to lock in position like a vice
I teamed this head with a new Gitzo GT2541EX 6X Carbon Fiber Tripod. Smooth is how I would characterize the operation of the head and the tripod. Well engineered and precise. My comment about the tripod being a good investment, not an expense, applies equally to the Gitzo GH2750 Series 2 Off Center...
The engineering brain I have keep me wondering about the quick release system. NO Problem solid as a rock !
This head is unusual in that it is possible to point the camera in any direction at all. It makes macro photography of an object below the tripod much easier. I chose it because of that feature. I use it with a Gitzo 2541 tripod. It is stable, but also small and light enough for travel.
This was a great head for sometime until the tilt knob became so hard to turn. I tried to use it yesterday and it has become impossible to turn even after over 24 hours of WD40! Did I tighten it so much? No. The darn thing just became stacked.
Thank god I've got a brilliant ballhead. After years of not having a respectable tripod, I decided for my trip to Utah now would be the time. I regret not having purchased one sooner. I hope this lasts a lifetime of infrequent use ;-)
I've never had a ball head before so it took some getting used to, but I like it. It's compact and lightweight. The only thing that I don't like is that the base sometimes begins to unthread from the tripod (a sort of pseudo-pan), but there's really nothing to do about that.
