I am 67 and have had chemo. I am not strong enough to hold a camera and a 400 mm lens. I put the GH-100 on a monopod and I am good to go. I worried that I would not be strong enough to use it but that is not the case. I go birding almost everyday and could not do it without the GH-100.Dot Rambin
I was constantly frustrated in trying to make my old tripod "work" with my long range spotting scope. It was maddening to field the target and almost impossible to fine tune. The Vanguard Alta eliminates the guess work. When the target comes into view it stays put, no guesswork, totally reliable.
Stays on point
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.
A great step up from using a smaller Sunpak grip,but at the price, it should be.Using with Induro alloy and aluminum tripod legs,AT and CT 213.Secure, with no wobble, very well made,grip spring is easy to tighten and loosen.Great combo with my Sony 70-400G.
Just an update on my GH-100 ballhead. After 4 years of use I have come to the conclusion that the tension adjustment is the big Achilles heel on this tripod head. As the head wears, It becomes nearly impossible to adjust the tension enough to hold my 6lb setup (half the heads rated load capacity)...
Too stiff when you want to make small adjustments and the ball head is too hard when you tighten it up for stiffness even if you make pressure on the grip. It is not a good head and there are many more better options for very similar prices. Would definitely would not recommend it to anyone.
I returned this item immediately. It was too "sticky" for fine adjustments or critical positioning, even with the tension knob loosened to the maximum. A ball head needs to find that fine line between being smooth in movement and firm when locked down.
Im loving this mount, the way you can re adjust the grip to however you want is excellent! Its biggest use is probably in photography though, because if you want to make tilt shots it wont be as straight since it is afterall a ball head mount. Buy it, you wont regret having it!
After much research and two weeks of use, I am happy to report that I am completely satisfied with this product. I highly recommend it for those of you seeking a pistol grip type ball head that is solidly built, reliable, and reasonably priced.
So this is a well made product, and I have used it for over 30 shoots, but it is not the head for me. I use it when I shoot with my Mamiya C330 or Mamiya Rz67, both heavy and big cameras.But my problem is that the pistol grip is hard and awkward to use in actual use.
