I am a professional real estate photographer. I purchased this item because I wanted to use the geared system for ultra accurate lines in my shots. It performs as described however, after only a few shoots..
I've just started using this instead of a regular ball head. I mostly shoot landscapes. While a ball head (and I have a very good one) can have tension set so it moves in smaller increments, it's not this precise.
Makes life much easier, even for high magnification moon photography - let you track movement so much easier than with a regular head.
Precise, but there is play in the mechanism requiring some additional tinkering before the exact settings are accomplished. Once set, the only noticeable wiggle was in the tripod.
We shoot real estate for MLS and virtual tours. This head is very fast and stable and holds our Canon 70Ds with 10-18 lens with no issues. We own 2 of these and have used them on hundreds of shoots without any problems.
It is probably the best head available, I have half a dozen Manfrotto heads and this one is absolutley the best for still photography I have seen or used.
The head functions well, particularly useful is the ability to release and quickly move an adjustment, and then make minor adjustments with the knobs. When the levers are released they do not always cleanly engage the gear at first.
We needed a geared head with precise movements for photographing artwork. This thing was loose right out of the box. If you would barely touch the camera the head would jiggle and move. Pretty much every access has play and movement in it, and there is no way to fix it.
i use this item to slowly pan distant hillsides when hunting. helps to make sure i look an area over carefully & methodically with smooth & steady actuation.
I received this tripod head and out of the box it just didn't work. It was very sloppy, the gears were not as tight as I hoped, and there was a manufacturing defect. No matter which way you tightened it, it just got more and more loose to the point where it wouldn't even support it's own weight.
