This is my second 700RC2. I got it for a video monopod. Originally I bought aManfrotto Befree Live Video Head because it offered camera balancing, but the tilting action was unacceptable, so we're back to the 700RC2.

I have a Swarovski 80mm scope. I had been using Manfrotto metal legs and 128RC head. I purchased the Manfrotto 190CX3 carbon fiber legs to save 2 lbs. I purchased this 700RC2 head to save 1 lb over the 128RC head. Both heads use the same quick release plate which works very well.

The 700RC2 is a good head for the price giving a nice fluid-like action for video work. At 10x the head can give smooth action with a careful touch - hard to achieve with most other semi-fluid heads.

  • +

    Economical with good fluid-like action

  • -

    Minimal amount of adjustments

Impressed with the build quality of the head. Very silky panning. I can;t get over the oversight with the side screw though, being uselessly designed for DSLR usage (design for long camcorders, not wide cameras).

Wish I can edit my review...Anyway, on my last review I gave it 3 stars for the screw that holds the quick release plate was a pain to tighten as I had to twist the camera sideways to give it room. I'd still recommend changing the screw so it cant be twisted in the way.But I did solve my problem!

The screw to tighten the quick release has a sort of thumb grip to make it 'easier'. However, if you have a camera that goes over it, which is probable most of them, you cant tighten it. So what I have to do is turn my camera sideways enough to tighten the quick release.

A friend gave me this head for use with my Sony RX10iii. At first I couldn't lock the plate because the head is designed for camcorders, not something wide like the RX10iii. The camera got in the way of the locking knob.

I used this fluid head on top of a slik 634 carbon tripod for hunting with a swarovski spotter. It has been awesome so far. The only thing i would change is to have a shorter arm on it to make it easier to fit into a pack. Awesome setup for sure.

This is a very nice, lightweight, easy to pack fluid head. It worked remarkably well with my Panasonic AG-AC30. The only reason that I didn't give it 5 stars, is that I had to strain to tighten the up/down to hold it in place.

Does ok on movement and tracking, but disappointed in quick release and locks
