Heavy for my need

Charlie, B&H Photo
3 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: I wanted to use on a monopod for wildlife pics. It was a bit heavy and clunky for my taste. While it was apparently very well built, Ii was not smooth. I sent it back. While I didn't like the head, I have done a lot of business with B&H and they were as good as ever.
  • Cons: Difficult To Adjust, Heavy, Jerky Movement

Perfect

  • Excerpt: I bought this head to mount on a gitzo monopod and it works perfect! I wouldn't hesitate to use this head on other platforms. It's smooth, locks tight, and the friction control is easy to adjust. This head is well built and can easily accommodate heavy loads. It's solid!

Damo, B&H Photo
23 December 2010
  • Excerpt: This is an excellent & versatile ball head that works great whether deployed outdoors with a Gitzo 5 Systematic Tripod OR indoors with a heavy-duty FOBA Studio Stand. I occasionally use this ball head on the Gitzo 5 series tripod when there is a need to support heavy telephoto lens outdoors.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Excellent Build, Good Stability, Rapid Locking Action, Reasonably Priced, Strong Clamp, Unmatched Sturdiness
