About Giottos MH-3300

Giotto's Pro II ball head series features a light and extra large ball with ball hollowed structure designed and manufactured to precisely position the camera both easily and securely.

Each has a stable and smooth base allowing fluid effect pans. Pro II features a slim and light body structure yet it is hardness strengthened, strong enough to support the heaviest of professional SLR's.

Each head features 3 separate safety knobs which provide optimal security as well as convenience. A friction control knob, and a separate locking knob for pan control are provided in addition to the main locking knob.

Giotto's has designed various camera mounts and sliding plates to fit these socket bases.

All of the plates feature safety locks with an "auto lock" retaining system and flanged edges to prevent camera slippage when shooting vertically. It is reversible when not needed.

The MH-658 long clamp-style quick release system (3.4"/86mm) is compatible with plates that fit the Arca Swiss standard. It features both horizontal and vertical bubble levels.

Very stable!


from Venango PA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This is a very sturdy head (supports my 70-400G with A700, V-grip and 2x with no problem) with a nice range of motion. Very large knobs for easy tightening. Very nice head but also very heavy.

"Excellent movement"


from Seattle, WA

This product is awesome to say the least. I bought thier mono-pod and liked it very much, which made me think of buying other products from Giottos and I have been very pleased.

All the qualities of a precision tool!


from Mesa, AZ  -  Photo Enthusiast

Impressive quality and ease of use makes this ball head a winner! It firmly holds my Nikon D300 with the extra battery & SB600 flash without a hint of movement. I especially like the rapid adjustments I can make to get into a new shooting position. Smooth operation, surfaces and great fit and finish. If there is a negative the worst I could say is: the slider locking plate that mounts onto the camera is a tight fit into its mounting point on the head, but it's not a big deal. When everything is locked down it does give one a sense of security knowing the camera is secure on the head and has no chance of falling off!

Excellent product, not 100% Accra type


from York. UK.  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Very positive in outdoor use for macro work. I use Kirk fixing plates and you need to remove the safety lock pin, just unscrews. However the jaws are a very tight fit for location as the plate has to be slid in, they will not open sufficiently to allow the plate to drop in between the jaws. Just one more thread would have allowed this, great pity as this is a simple engineering problem. Otherwise very pleased.
