I bought this ball head for my trip to South Dakota. I wanted to get some good landscape shots in the Badlands and the Black Hills. The ball head was easy to set up and use and I got some great shots. I also got some great shots of the Buffalo and wild horses.
This is a very well designed and manufactured product. Heavy duty construction should last for years. Ball rotates very smoothly. I use relatively heavy equipment (Nikon 300s and Nikkor 17-55 F2.8 lens). This is a heavy camera and lens but this head holds it securely.
I use this ball head on my U212 slik tripod and it works great! I have a 85-300mm lense on my DSLR Nikon camera and it holds all of it very well.
I needed a light tripod head to use when I travel but it needed to be able to support my camera and lenses, especially for vertical shots. I did some research and decided to purchase this head. I took it on a twelve day trip and used it every day. It worked like a charm.
I couldn't believe how hard it is to search online for a dual level ball head and finally I found one! This was recommended by my husband and I purchased this with the 190XB 3-SEC/FLIP LOCK/ALUMINUM TRIPOD by manfrotto.
This is a usable ball head however it does not work well with long lenses. I've had it for several years and am now going to have to spend more $$ to get a head that does not drupe. It is very difficult to use with a my 70-300MM zoom lens. I can not get it to stay where I focus.
haven't used it too much yet, but appears that it is well made
I have a Slik Pro 500DX that came with a pan tilt head, and while the tripod legs are excellent, I wasn't too crazy about the pan tilt head that came with it. I don't do anything in the way of shooting video so I decided to upgrade to a ballhead.
This is an easy to use quick release head with a good range of motion. It holds my 270 zoom lens securely and, it fit my 25 year old SLIK tripod base!
I have this atop a a Slik Pro 634CF and it works well. While it would be nice to have a tension knob as well as a locking knob, the single tension/locking knob does its job well.
