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..
Precise, but there is play in the mechanism requiring some additional "tinkering" before the exactsettings 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.
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.
Very good head for adjusting the Nikon P900 when at high zoom. The threads are too course, so fine adjustments are not easy. The system has too much back-lash, you need to rotate in the opposite direction noticeably before the head moves.
A WORLD of difference! Comparing it to the regular sticky plastic head, I can actually set my scene without throwing a fit... Just turn knobs; like an etch-a-sketch. Life is good...
I bought a few of these heads for my work. We needed new setups for our VR rigs. Now we don't use super heavy VR mounts, but we do use D4s. So the weight on the head is decent. The problem I'm having is when you rotate the VR mount the head rolls around with the weight shift.
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.
