I purchased this ballhead to be paired with my Induro tripod. I needed a ballhead that was light weight and still able to support a Canon 5D Mark II and Canon 70-300mm lens. This ballhead is great.

I bought this a couple years back, and operationally it is been great. I love the slight friction on the panning and it has a solid lock. However, as discussed in some other reviews there is a slight pull on the ball when it tightens which is difficult when zeroing in on a specific location with a...

Good for a lot of starter lenses. Stick to ~10-15 lb max, and no telephotos.

I am using this head along with the Really Right Stuff TP-243 Ground Pod for photographing wildlife. The head is solid and easily holds my D3s and long lenses. The panning is smooth and the oversized knobs make for easy adjustments.

its okay for what i need but just be careful not to lay it down on a concrete it will scratch easily. the material they use is so light that it bend the plate locking nob.

This is a definite step up for me. This is easy to set up and easy to use. the knobs are easy to figure out, and the construction is fine. The range is good, it is very stable, and the quick release feature is sturdy.

I purchased this ballhead based on the reviews here and I must say I am disappointed. The ballhead has two major flaws:1. There is a slight shift when tightening the ball. Very annoying when trying to get a precise frame (e.g. close-ups or telephoto work).2.

Very disappointed. Base swivel lockup failed after very limited use, sticking in one position. Also, quick release lockup difficult to get a good lockdown and seems to loosen on its own.

As a pro photographer who has had many tripods and heads I believe the Induro head is one of the best I've had. When locked it stays locked and the quick release plate is very easy to use and sensible.
