I've had the new 405 for less than 6 months and the quick release lever fell apart in my hand. I've been using Manfrotto products for going on 15 years. Product reliability until now has been stellar.
After messing around with my ball head manfrotto tripod attempting to shoot city scenes during the blue light hour I decided to replace the ball with a gear head. The control you get with a gear head over a ball is like night and day, especially when shooting a 70-200mm Tamron f 2.8 in a portrait...
Solid strong and smooth
I wasn't sure how quick this would be compared to my last ball head, but this gear head is awesome! Super easy and fast to use.
I've had the 410 for a few years and was never that happy with it since it developed a little play in it right away. Wish I had just bought the 405 to begin with, it's much more solid and has no play or movement. So far very happy with it.
I am very happy with this Manfrotto Geared Head. So nice, smoooth and precise. Thanks Manfrotto.
Big, heavy and awesome. I really enjoy the ability to precisely position the camera for product photography. Amazing for it's repeatable accuracy.
This is a must-have for product photography. I waited way too long to make the purchase. Rock solid and precise adjustments. I use this on my camera stand in the studio. I've added a RRS leveling base to the bottom and a RRS quick release stacked on top.
I rarely write reviews but I have to rave about this product. I already owned a nice Manfrotto ball head however, being an architectural photographer, I thought a geared head would be something really nice to have. And oh boy! It made my work so much easier!
I can't believe I waited this long to purchase this head. As a food photographer I use my tripod for some food shots, but also for interiors and exteriors of the food spaces I shoot.
