I messed around with a few other brands on sale and sent them back. Finally decided to spend a bit more and get the Manfrotto and this was a good lesson in value. This is a ballhead that is very well constructed and simply has a feeling of long lasting quality and endurance.
This unit is a heavy duty build and appears extremely durable. I like the twin leveling bubbles, one making level pans easier and the other ensuring portrait shots are plumb. The way the quick release plate sets down into the top of the assembly gives a more secure feeling when locking the camera in...
Really good product,good quality easy to use it would have been perfect if it was lighter. But anyway it's a really good gear!
Good product: it holds about 1.8 kg of my DSLR & medium-range zoom lens in nearly vertical position without apparent slipping. If you taking a lot of video clips you may be better off with a video-type head (with a handle!).
This is a great improvement over the one that came with my Oben tripod. Keeps my heavier body/lens combinations in place and stable.
The head works great on my monopod holding a Tamron 150-600 G2 on a Canon 7d. This camera/ lens combination is about 6 1/2 pounds.I can set the tension adjuster once and lock the ballhead for carrying on my shoulder and unlock the ball head when I'm ready to shoot.
Wow what a ball head! I used to have the cheaper manfrottos and they were nice but I later upgraded to a mefoto setup for a smaller lighter tripod. Realizing over the year and a half how much it didn't work for me I decided to go ahead and spend a $4-500 on a nice ballhead and legs.
I love this new ball head. With 3 individul controls for; panning, friction control and overall ball head movement. I put it to the test with my Nikon D 7000 & 80-200 f 2.8 with 2x teleconverter and it locks down in every position tested.
I recently purchased a canon 80D and a used 5D. My previous system was a canon sx 50 a much lighter bridge camera. The new gear weighs much more, especially with long lenses. The ball head and quick release system are very stable and quick to adjust.
I'm on a medication that promotes "shakes"...not that I was any good without the "shakes"! I turned to the ball head to help steady myself and found it worked wonders with a monopod!!!
