The geared movements are a little stiff but may smooth out with use. However, the mount is not centered over the tripod. Any pans will be offset. Why did they do this? If you are trying to do a precise movement the requires a horizontal pan of any kind, you will be frustrated as the camera is not...
This is a great gear head. The only reason for 4 stars is I wish they gave you options for what type of camera mounting plate it came with. I use Manfrotto quick release plates on all my cameras and long lens and this plate is not the right kind for that application.
This is the first gear head that I have purchased and am quite pleased with the product. I have used ball head leveling for architectural work but having experienced the gear head system, the ball head is now exclusively used for supporting the off camera flash.
I have other heads from Manfrotto but this one is perfect for my stills. Very reliable and easy to adjust after a few clicks! It holds perfectly my D750 with a Micro 105mm lens in every angle I need it.It's sturdy and I believe it'll last for a long time!
I use this head for real estate photography and other times when I need a long exposure. Previously I've used the Manfrotto pistol grip heads and have also used ball heads. This one is much more stable and precise, allowing me to dial in those critical angles to make real estate and architecture...
I purchased this (along with a Manfrotto tripod) a few weeks back primarily for architectural/real estate work, as well as product photography. After using it for a few shoots over the last two weeks, I can say that I have zero complaints.
Its nice but after some use it becomes very difficult to adjust. I have had this a little over a year and I had to buy the Pro today because this is too loose. If you need to do multiple shots and layer them you cannot touch the head after you begin shooting or the shots won't line up.
I bought that head primarily for mounting a spotting scope and coupled it with the Manfrotto 055 tripod legs. This is a 3-dimension head with very smooth and slow movement, though there is a mechanism of temporary disengagement of geared movement.
Great for lining up distant objects, moon, planets, etc. like the feature that allows you to get aligned near the subject quickly, then fine tune with the dials. A bit pricy but wort it.
I purchased the 410 Junior Geared Head for use in my commercial product photo studio with tilt and shift lenses. I am very pleased with how it complements the movements of these lenses. The adjustments are precise just like on the PC lenses.
