  • Summary: I purchased this ball & socket head for use with my Gitzo basalt tripod (replacing my existing tripod head by another manufacturer). Although it is compact, it is more than adequate to support my Leica X1. It feels like it is of solid construction and hopefully will give many years of service. Very pleased with it so far.
  • Pros: Compact, Easily Adjusted, Lightweight, Locks In Tight, Smooth Movement

Light but not as tight as you would hope

  • Summary: The mixed delights of this tripod head are confusing me. Coupled with a Gitzo lightweight tripod, it is the ideal weight for a travelling person. But as soon as you try to micro adjustments to straighten those horizons, the flaws become apaprent. I cannot fault Gitzo, beacuse this is exactly as it is designed and exactly as advertised...a case of buyer beware....So I will keep it on my tripod, but always wish I could have a tension adjuster ball head.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight
  • Cons: Difficult To Adjust, Slips Out Of Position
