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.

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.

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.

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.

This is a terrific and innovative ball head. I am using this for my Panasonic MFT cameras and it is more than robust enough to remain stable and not creep when longer telephoto lenses are attached with little or no tension applied.

I have it on a sturdy monopod with my D700 and Sigma (Bigma)50-500mm lens, both of which are heavy, to say the least. It helps keep them steady, not to mention, saves the weight from being around my neck.

Everything has been great with my Vanguard pistol grip so far! The only reason I rated it a 4 is because I haven't had a chance to try out the trigger release since it didn't come with the proper cord for my camera. Would definitely recommend as a stable tripod head.

2-stars only. If using this pistol grip with Nikon low profile collar lens (older telephoto lenses)and Nikon FX D700+batt grip, HARD FOULING occurs between the rubbered top of the pistol grip and the base of battery grip.
