A Real Timesaver

I shoot a lot of virtual tours with the 303-SPH head and this leveler. The leveler is a real time saver and the perfect compliment to the head. My only gripe is the tightness of the adjusting screws. At times, they are fairly difficult to turn. I thought they would loosen over time, but I've had this product for almost two years. The problem persists. A little WD40 helps, though. This is not a major problem and would not keep me from buying another if I ever need one. This thing is built lik...

Effective but hard to adjust.

This product does exactly what it is advertised to do. However, the adjusting knobs are extremely hard (stiff) to adjust. I emailed the manufacturer for help but never received a response.

Useful, but very stiff

It's a very solid leveling head. Once you achieve a level, it will not move. The knobs are very tight. Not sure why it had to be so tight, and I don't really see an easy way to loosen them. The tightness of the knobs knocks off two stars because it makes the leveling head really difficult to use.

Manufacturing adjustments needed

Solid heavy duty perfect for my application in theory. Leveling screws way to stiff. Additional lubrication does not help.

Good stuff. Hope it could be lighter.

By

from New Jersey  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

It works well as what it is designed for. However, to haul this extra wight for a long walk is not as desirable. In fact, Manfrotto's devices are always in the heavier side. It really can be made with lighter (yet stronger) material.
