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!

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 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.

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).

I'm shooting semi-pro video and wanted a fluid head for travel with an RC2 quick release. This head is very smooth, lightweight and overall all you can ask for. You cannot really adjust the speed tension of the pan or tilt, it's either tight or loose, but the loose has very smooth resistance, there...

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.

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.

I use this primarily for a Kowa 75mm Spotting Scope, weight about 4.5 lbs. Very smooth panning and tilt, locking knobs easily accessible, and easy quick release. That is helpful for birders who also carry a DSLR with 300 mm or greater telephoto and want to also occasionally use this setup on the...

This pan/ tilt head was purchased because I needed an inexpensive head for a small, lightweight carbon fiber tripod to be used with a small spotting scope: for children to use when out Birding with me. It has worked out well for this purpose.
