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.
This head has everything I need for shooting architecture. While it may not be up to the quality level of a Cube it's definitely stable and has accurate fine movements. A bargain compared to the price of the Cube
I loved (past tense) this head. It was everything I needed in a tripod head for quick and smooth adjustments, until the tripod slipped off my cart, and landed on linoleum tile floor. As you can see from the photo, the part of the head holding the mounting plate is wafer-thin. Very major design flaw.
I originally purchased this head a few months ago to replace one of my failing JR gear heads. I thought by purchasing this bigger head it would not fail as often. I was wrong. I had 3 of the JR heads because one always need to go to Arizona for repair. Now I need to do the same thing with this head.
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.
