Great product - Would buy again...

This is a very nice product. Am very pleased - very smooth action. I use with my video camera for weddings, couldn't ask for a better product. I also have a Bogen-Manfrotto 322RC2 Horizontal Grip Action Ball Head with RC2 Rapid Connect for my Digital Camera, I keep a RC2 rapid connect on both my video and DSLR - this way I can use my monopod or tripod at anytime.

too much play...

While Adorama is a great dealer and I really appreciate their professional products [...], unfortunately... I was planning on using this as a lightweight head for HD DSLR video with a 7D (very light) on a slider rig but there is a lot of play in the base of the unit. maybe I just got a bad one? Manfroto builds good stuff but then again this one didn't break the bank. :(

solid unit for the price

By

from chico, Ca

exelent head atop large trypods. a great match for the 190xb tripod. I use this combo for wildlife observation and hunting. A bit heavy, but that weight provides a stable platform for a spotting scope in moderate to high winds. The only negative about this product is that there is a slight bit of play on the vertical axis...for professional video this may be of concern, but for my uses, you can't beat this product. A very good piece of equipment for the price.

Perfect for DSLR with telephoto lens

By

from San Diego  -  Professional

I have tried several heads shooting surfing and live action sports with a Canon D5 & a 100-400 telephoto lens. This head is a winner. It's easy to work, gives the degrees of freedom that you need while maintaining your horizon, and produces silk smooth live action pans. It's Perfect.

The perfect match

By

from Tokyo, Japan  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Absolutely ideal for light-weight spotting scopes. I'm using it on Nikon's phenomenal compact Fieldscope ED50-A, and find the combination perfectly suited to each other. A set of Manfrotto carbon fiber legs completes the set. Highly recommended.
