I tried to like it but couldn't. The lockouts killed me. Not sure what Manfrotto was thinking. I realize that for some of you, the lockouts may not be a big deal. BUT, if you've been shooting on Manfrotto for a while (like me), or own other Manfrotto heads (also like me), or shoot with people who...

Very smooth but be careful of camera weight. It is much better than I expected it to be. I use it with the Manfrotto RC Pan Bar EX Remote Control for LANC Cameras. A good combo.

Tilt release is on wrong side!!!! You cannot have your right hand on the handle and "release" the head tilt as it is on the right side of the head. Additionally, the plate is very difficult to "slide in". I have the models predecessor and love it.

Wish I had purchase this years ago!I removed the spreader and just use the tripod without it. I also removed the feet and just use the spikes for outdoors.I can take close-ups at ground level, or get photos of birds in flight. It's very versatile.The fluid head works great.

I'm using this system with my fully rigged Ursa Mini Pro. Just perfect for me!

This Manfrotto head & tripod kit is absolutely the best I have ever owned. I am taking videos like a pro. The action of the head is very smooth. The tripod is extremely durable and quite flexible at matching almost any "filming" condition. Use the Manfrotto carry bag. It is a perfect match.

The bolt that releases the place was clean snapped off flush with the base. I've seen a lot of reviews that express this same disappointment. The head itself is just ok.
