Excerpt: Cannot clamp the ball enough to hold a small mirrorless camera and lens without slipping. I have a similar Giottos MH-1004 which is the same size and it hold a much larger camera no problem. I gave it 2 stars because the material quality is still Giottos good.
Excerpt: I ordered this guy to mount my Sl1 with a 40mm lens on a C-Stand. I wanted to be able to take time-lapses during weddings. When I unboxed this guy I was very impressed and loved it's movement/quick locking functionality. BUT after one wedding, the ball joint became weak.
Excerpt: I purchased this ballhead to hold a light weighing 1.3 pounds. The head is rated to support 7 pounds. I doesn't even come close to maintaining the light in the upright position. The only pro is it's low cost.
