Things I like:- the quick release plate is great. it is solid and well engineered- great for fine tune adjustments on your shots (it is a geared head, afterall)Things I don't like:- heavy- knobs get stuck and hard to turn at times- the pan adjustment became wobbly after about a year of use,...
Looks quite sturdy from the outside. Very nice to use but after a while play developed in the gears. When disassembled the 'gears' appeared to be surprisingly flimsy. Product had to be replaced after two years of not very frequent use.
one of the parts driven by the upper worm gear ground itself into uselessness. no heavy use, not professional day-to-day use, just what seems low quality materials (or a defect). lots of online requests for how to tighten up loose fitting adjustments after not a lot of use.
An essential tool for shooting multiple photos without converging verticals. Much better built than its cheaper, plastic cousin. The only flaw is that the knobs for gross movements are a little hard to access with large fingers. Reasonably compact, and will fit inside most tripod bags.
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.
Heavy as heck but also stable.
I like this tripod head when it works. I have bought 2 of them, on both the top knob has broken and gotten stuck. My most recent one I only had for a year, and i am debating buying this one again or trying a different brand. Both times it broke because I dropped it from like, a foot off the ground.
I have previously written a favorable review of this head, and it does have good features; I really care about geometry and precise framing during long exposures and the Manfrottos adjustments plus a solid tripod allow for that.
I love the geared motion. Its smooth and precise. Whats a challenge is the slack, or looseness around the base pivot point. It gives the head a loose feeling which is the exact opposite of what I want. Its annoying, but Ive learned to work with it.
Build quality seems good but it didn't last very long. I use my equipment 3-4 days a week for work. After 3 months of use the quick release broke and my camera almost fell off in the middle of a shoot. I had to run out to buy a second one to complete the job.
