I tried to use it with a spotting scope for night sky observation and found it could not point upward. Also under high magnification (20X plus) the creep makes it useless.It is suitable for landscape photography as long as you don't need to point upward.
Ordered a second one of these as a backup for my Vanguard tripod with BBH-200 ballhead. I've been using this tripod and head for four years, they receive rugged use and have continued to work flawlessly.The quick mounting plate attaches securely to the bottom of my Nikon cameras.
Great to have attached to both my large lenses and camera body. Easy to switch and mount at a seconds notice.
Just received this trigger ball head, and am very pleased with it, except for one thing. The included TC 1 shutter cable is not compatible with my Canon 70D camera body. It does, however, work with my older Canon 40D camera body. After a little experimentation, I was able to solve this problem.
The overall quality is there, my only observation would be that if you pull the handle to move it, it stay difficult to move even with minimal stiffness adjustment. This could be to prevent the camera to fall to the front by mistake. Very satisfied. Trigger work very well.
This quick release plate help in changing from camera to spotting scope on the same tripod.Real time saver for equipment swap for capturing those shots in the great outdoors.
Bought this after suffering the downside of a 3 way...... Quickly re-sighting.<br />Wish I had started off with this, variable friction, smooth, all directions, plus angle locking and degree markings for panoramas. A lot of though has been put into this to cater for all aspects of tripod shooting.
Durable, Great Features, Simple Controls
The unit looks sturdy and well-made, BUT ... as other reviewers have said, I had trouble with the tension adjustment. With my lighter lenses, there was no happy medium where movement was fluid with trigger depressed, but position was held solid when the trigger was released.
There's a horizontal pan control at the top right of the head. Loosen it and swing the camera 90 degrees rignt. Tighten it, and you can shoot straight up. For me, it's a completely adequite work-around.
I live in a retirement community that has a lot of predator bird action, such as Ospreys, Eagles and occasional hawk. I have to hand hold my camera with an 18-300 zoom lens because my current heads will not allow a fluid up and down and pan mode in a smooth motion.
