Works very nicely with long lens like my Sigma 150-500mm. Makes panorama shots a breeze! Very stable and precise adjustments when compared to most ball heads, which makes up for the additional weight of the tripod. Recommended for any level photographer.

Amazing device that makes getting the perfect angle so much easier. The functions of this device make this the perfect attachment for a tri or mono pod .

I was very interested in getting this head when I saw the Vanguard video showing it in action. I looked rock solid and very ergonomic. After receiving the head I put in on my favorite carbon fiber tripod and started playing around both with a small lens on a 7D and a 70-200 2.8 on it.

For shooting nectaring hummingbirds, I use my Vanguard GH-100 to support and maneuver either a Nikkor 300-mm optical lens, or a Nikkor 500-mm mirror reflex lens. The pistol grip control makes tracking hummers so much easier than pan & tilt heads.

Smooth action very nice easy to install . This is a must if you shoot movies or still . I mainly shoot stills but it definitely a must for shooting movies..

This is an AWESOME item. Solid, versatile; does exactly what I wanted. Very well made. Does more than you'll probably need it to do.

I read mostly good reviews for this Pistol Grip, so I ordered it. The first thing you notice is how heavy it is! Adding to the weight, the cumbersome, large size makes it inconvenient, awkward to carry around. I carry it in a large photo vest pocket, until I am ready to set up my tripod.

I'm a big fan of the pistol heads. I find them to be so much faster to use than ball types. Unfortunately the heavier my gear became, the more puny my Sunpak pistol head became. Any attempt to shoot portraits was met with about 15% degrees of disappointment.

Have you ever tried to set up a shot on an uneven surface like in and amongst rocks? You have to secure the legs so the tripod is stable and balanced, but after doing that you also have to get the damn thing level. Well, no longer.

Works as described. I am happy with it although I would prefer the newer style of quick release plate and I would like the level to be viewable with the camera mounted. Other then those two things I am pleased with this.
