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.
I do a lot of macro photography and had found my previous tripod head very frustrating to get into position. The controls on this head means I can make micro adjustments in all directions and used with a focusing rail means it's really accurate. A great product and I thoroughly recommend it.
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 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.
If I were still doing portraits or weddings I'd have sent this thing back. While the gears work okay trying to move it with the release handles is annoying at best. Usually it doesn't want to move at first and when it does it never stays where you put it when you release the handle.
I specialize in photographing architecture. The ability to level my camera with fine tuned controls attracted me to this product. We do a lot of multiple frame exposures and it is imperative the the camera is rock solid for each exposure.
I purchased this item purely because I needed slightly more control than with my previous ball head.Overall, Manfrotto have done an excellent job in the design of this item. As a Landscape photographer, it allows me to fine tune the compositions, which the ball head didn't.
Fine Tune Composition, Great Features, Lightweight
Flimsy Construction, Slight Movement
Useful quick movements followed by screw operated fine adjustments.Very light due to use of plastics but still able to hold my Eos 100-400 L lens.The usual Manfrotto quality
Durable, Great Features, Lightweight, Simple Controls
As a professional landscape photographer I prefer to use geared heads for precise compositional adjustments - I the 410 Junior and 405 geared heads both of which provide exceptional rigditiy, stability and precise control-the only downside being bulk and weight.
