One thing common to all magazine and advertising photography is that images have to be sharp, and more and more clients want you in and out quickly. This ball head sets the camera as quickly as can be done. It is a real nice experience using this head.
I liked the stability of this head but I did not like that the lowest tension could not give it free wiggling room and was still rather tight.Mainly the plate locking mechanism with was uncomfortable to attach and moreso to remove the camera.
Very well made and easy to use for positioning the camera; a bit of a heavy side but this is no problem for me as I use it in a studio environment.It provide a sense of security that your expensive camera/lens are not going anywhere, will definitely recommend to a friend.
Good ball head for heavy gear and larger lens's. Movement is precise and accurate and it stays where you put it. The amount of friction adjustment allows for very granular control to be set for any load and both the pan and ball movements are silky smooth.It is a heavy head and may not be the best...
Great ball head, but the plate to ball post is ill fitting. The keyed surfaces between the plate and the ball are a loose fit even when the screw is tight. The only thing keeping it from rotating a few degrees when assembled is how much torque is applied to the screw. Once really tightened its OK.
I use this ball head with my 1Dx. While it's a little bit of overkill in terms of the weight applied, I use this exclusively outdoors on civil construction sites with numerous heavy excavators and trucks running around so I wanted something with a bit of extra bulk that could take the knocks that...
It is a very easy to use, very solid and reliable!
Bought this for general landscape use as well as some close-up macro work. This has a great motion and grabs nicely when locked.It is heavy, but this is reasonable considering the solid feel.Quick release is nice and re-attaches to head very easily.
Solid head, doesn't move. Very sturdy base!
I just got this 057 magnesium ball head w/ RC4 QR by manfrotto last week. I used it with my Canon 7D with 70-200mm 2.8 lens and 580 EX ii Speedlite. It works great. The panning and portrait selectors is wonderful.
