Great looking and very functional at a

I use the ballhead for a small dslr and it works great. Used it on a larger manfrotto tripod (055XPRROB) and now I will be using it on a smaller Benro tripod. Very happy with the Giottos ballheads, especially for the price. They look and feel like quality.

small but stable

By

The locking knob is on the left and the tensioning knob is on the right, the opposite to what I'm used to. Also, there is only one slot on the ball head mount for verticals rather than two.

huge value for perfect ball head

By

from ontario canada  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This is a wonderful ballhead for its price tag.Many features include a pan function with a solid lock down.All aluminum contruction,no plastic parts to wear or break over prolong use.A pleasure to operate due to the oversized knobs,that have integrated rubber diamond pattern wrapped control surfaces.When picked up for first time you will notice the solid weight of the sturdy construction.Over all i feel its the best value for such a quality constructed ball head,so just buy it and prepare to be very impressed.

Good Replacement

By

from LosAngeles, CA  -  Pro Photographer

Replacement for another brand ballhead with one controll knob,This is Far better with full controll of motion and tension to hold the camera where you want it to stay. light weight yet heavyduty enough to get the job done no matter what. Getting another for the monopod QL plates the same no need to change.

Very Sturdy

By

from Jackson Hole, WY  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This ballhead does a great job and supports a good amount of weight for its size. I only wish I had looked a little closer - the lack of a quick release plate is hard to get used to. Overall, a great ballhead for the price otherwise.

Better buy when it was much cheaper

By

from New Zealand

Bought many years ago when it was much cheaper. Compact unit. Finish holding up. Friction controls nearly useless. Creeps when locking down. Action not smooth. Would not buy again at present price.

Good medium sized head

By

from Philadelphia  -  Photo Enthusiast

This is my first ball head and I'm still getting used to it. But so far, so good. I have a Canon Rebel Tli and it seems to hold it very well, even with a 70-300 lens.
