Great tripod head for the price


Arca Swiss plates do not work with this head. My Kirk Enterprize Plates and camera brackets work well.


Tripod Head with Great Flexibility


I wanted a highly flexible head so I could use the camera at any angle/position. Mated to a Gitzo GT2541EX Series 2 6x Carbon Fiber 4 Section G-Lock Tripod, there is almost no positioning that is not possible. It may be too complex for some users, but I like it. Well made of quality materials, but still from [*]. Good investment.


Fast Response, Superb Construction


First full day I had it, I went to Millennium Park and shot for four hours at sunrise. The fast response of the controls made tripod work a pleasure again. Particularly during "golden hours" photography when the best lighting can last only seconds, this resposiveness is critical. The craftsmanship is felt instantly when picking up the product and securing it to the tripod. Quality in every area.

Incredible in many ways!


The first item I received had play in the forward/rear tilt so I contacted [...] Induro. [...] responded very promptly (it was a weekend), [...] Induro called right away and I sent the unit back to them. The response was "we need you, you don't need us" - I am going to use that - and they sent me a new one which arrived in 3 days. Problem solved. Rock solid and absolutely what I had hoped for in an alternative to a ball head. A great company and a great product!
