Excerpt: I recently picked up this Manfrotto 128RC QR head to use as a relatively compact, simple, not too expensive video head. So far I'm very pleased. Both panning and tilting are very smooth and tension is good.
It's a very simple head, no tension adjustment or counterbalance.
Excerpt: This is a great, small video head from Manfrotto. I use it with small camcorders and mid-size DSLR's with no issues. Smooth panning and tilting with good tension adjustments. Highly recommended.
Excerpt: Great Head, Built Well... Purchased as a slider rail head, not my main head. I needed a s,all smooth head for my system. Good purchase for not much money. For my main head I prefer a much larger more advanced head.
Excerpt: Manfrotto products are almost never the cheapest, but they are the best. Only received 4 stars because in this instance the price difference between this head and all other heads was so wide. It could be less expensive to be more competitive.
Excerpt: I've been using this head now for about a month. It performs well for smaller Pro camcorders. Very smooth panning and tilting. I like the quick release head. I can shoot by hand then put it on the tripod quickly. This is important for my documentary video.
Excerpt: I bought this head to replace a ball head on my old Bogen tripod. I mounted it without any problems. I've used it a few times now with my Canon XA-20. Panning is very fluid and smooth, although you must be careful how snug the pan screw is. If its too loose you"ll pan too quickly.
Excerpt: I was very pleasantly surprised when this arrived at my door. I have multiple video heads for larger rigs but had ordered this "micro" head exclusively for use on a video monopod I'd recently purchased.
