Summary: I took this hiking thru Arizona and it withstood being dunked in water, rolled in dust and sand repeatedly, dropped and scrapped across rocks, freezing weather one day then sitting in the hot Arizona desert sun the next day, and being tossed in the back of a bouncing SUV for two weeks. Beyond a very minor chip to the finish it is as strong and as smooth as the day I first got it.
Summary: I purchased this head for a dual purpose. I needed a fluid type head for video and a 3-way for photo. This was the perfect solution for me as it was inexpensive, high quality and has demonstrated excellent performance.I shoot video of my daughters' gymnastics team as well as photograph with my DSLR and I put together several DVDs during the competition season complete with chapters, soundtrack, slideshows and menus using Sony Vegas 8.
Pros: Compact, High Quality, Perfect for my use, Secure, Smooth movement, Strong, Versatile
Summary: Possiedo la 5000, che differisce solo per la mancanza della placca asportabile.
Solida e ben costruita, consente una panoramica completa ed efficace delle inquadrature,
Comoda l'impilatura delle maniglie per il trasporto.
