Great Ballhead

Julia P., Adorama
11 September 2011
  • Excerpt: I was looking for a compact ballhead for my Induro AM25 monopod to use for travel and I couldn't be happier with my Goittos MH-1002. It feels solid,it's light, the ball moves smoothly throughout it's range, and the camera attaches firmly. I also like having a separate panhead lock.<br />I had never used a QR plate before, so in trying to keep my cost down, I didn't add one at the time of purchase. I did end up adding one down the line. Truly a quality product.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion

Great Ballhead for smaller cameras

Scootah the Shootah, Adorama
27 January 2011
  • Excerpt: First of all, there is no way this ballhead supports 13 pounds, or even the 6.6 pounds that it is sometimes rated at. However, it is a great ballhead for smaller cameras like my Panasonic G1. The Giottos MH-1002 has a really nice look and feel to it, appears very well made. The independent panning lock is a great feature...the actual panning movement is a bit stiff, but works smoothly enough..
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp

if you have more money get a better head

  • Excerpt: I find the ballhead easy to use and smooth. But it is not capable of clamping tight enough for me. Cranked all the way down, I can still move the head with my hands. The panning lock is really nice though. The construction is overall solid but a little wobbly.<br /><br />If you have enough money, I think you should get a better head. It should be fine for light-duty work though, I wouldn't recommend using a large, heavy lens with it.
  • Pros: Great Value
  • Cons: Weak Clamp
