  • Excerpt: In my first review I complained about 'panorama' inadequacy. I was a bit too harsh. Actually with my camera locked down solidly there's still enough freedom in the horizontal rotation for fine smooth panorama to be done . . a bit tighter and that locks out as well, the head is much more versatile than I'd given it credit for.<br />**Fragile, the plastic lock-plates on the legs get brittle in extreme cold.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp
  • Cons: Fragile In Cold

Rock Solid Unit!

  • Excerpt: I was amazed at how light the AKB2 actually is, for it's size. <br /> At 5'6&quot; tall I can use this model without need to extend the center post = SOLID support.<br /> I use this with Pentax K-30 and Sony SLT-A57, both with a wide assortment of lenses, including 300 and 400mm telephoto.<br /> I really like the FAST lock down convenience of the Ballhead and snap locks on the 3 section legs. Fast Fast FAST!
  • Pros: Fast setup, Good Stability, Great Quick Release, Strong Clamp, Super Light
  • Cons: Not For Panoramas
