I was a bit worried as I did not purchase as a kit with a tripod. I wanted the 327RC Pro Joystick Ball Head which was a step up and a bit heaver to go with my Manfrotto carbon 190Pro3 Carbon tripod. Well, zero problem with my Fuji and heavy 50-140mm f2.8 zoom.

Well made, easy to use and makes using a tripod a joy!

Very smooth quick and easy to adjust.<br /><br />Has a friction control wheel under the grip for adjusting the tension required on the ball.<br /><br />Find it holds a D810 with battery pack and f2.8 70-200 attached without any problem at all.

I shoot a D7000 with an 18-300mm lens. This lens is not equipped with a shoe to mount via the lens. This puts a fair amount of weight out in front of the camera. Saying that, the head feels loose even with no camera on it.

Was looking to add another Manfrotto ball-head for a new camera stand, but the model we already have is discontinued. This one doesn't seat the shoe as tightly/as easily and there's a slight shift when you release the grip. The tension seems like it should be tighter than the unit allows.

I have my 327 since 2012, until now it has been very useful in my nature, studio, portrait and macro photography, it supports my nikon d610 with 105mm and the nikon R1 flashes, no problem with that, Is it heavy? a little bit, but I prefer a heavy stuff that works that a light one that doesnt....

Great range of motion with a quick grip of the trigger. Easy to use and very solid. Handles camera and a heavy lens well.
