Solid

johnmcdon, Adorama
10 July 2008
  • Excerpt: It is beautiful, and well built. I would have liked a gear drive on the slide that you adjust the most like the Manfrotto 454. I may try swapping that slide. The scales are not always easily read, difficult to see the #5 increments so you may have to count lines from where it is plainly visible, but that's just a small inconvenience sometimes. Maybe I will get better with practice.
  • Pros: Improves Tripod Function

Great sturdy head, some minor problems

AOPMike, Adorama
6 June 2008
  • Excerpt: I shoot 360 degree virtual tours for a living and have used this head for nearly 1000 tours. The best thing about these heads is that you only need to set them once for a particular camera and lens combination. Once the settings are made, you're good to go. The settings are also the problem. The head is assembled with screws that hold everything in place. Sometimes these screws come loose during travel from job to job. If you don't catch it, the tour can be effected.

Manfrotto quality all the way

Adorama
8 May 2007
  • Excerpt: I am a professional photographer. I am very technical and demanding on my gear. I always try to provide myself with the best equipment, and if I cannot afford it at the time, I prefer to wait until I have the money rather than jump for a lower quality, cheaper alternative.<br /><br />In my opinion, Manfrotto is THE brand to turn to when I need a tripod, head, light support, or, in this case, a Pano Head.
  • Pros: Excellent build, High Quality, Intelligent design, Most technical Pano Head, Precise adjustments
  • Cons: Expensive, No quick release plate

Nice piece of kit

Chotltonite, WEX
17 October 2013
  • Summary: This is an exceptionally well made and thought out head. Small but important points (as mentioned by other reviewers) as the addition of steel retaining cables to avoid you dropping/losing important locking screws. Very good range of adjustments eTc.This head calls for the use of a heavy tripod such as the Manfrotto 161 to avoid slight variations when rotating and avoiding stitching problems later.I would definitely recommend using the additional Manfrotto 338 levelling...
  • Pros: Easily Adjusted, Locks In Tight, Smooth Movement

Panoramic Tool

Jasper, WEX
15 April 2010
  • Summary: ProsIt&iacute;s built like a tank with excellent attention to detail.It has all the useful measurements marked on it allowing for the re-setting of the nodal point with ease, once calibrated correctly.Important (and otherwise easy to lose screws!) are attached via wire grips to the head itself.Inclusion of the 300N panoramic head at the base allows for the interval angle between shots to be easily and rapidly changed!

Its does what is says on the tin

Richard, WEX
16 February 2009
  • Summary: After the initial headscratching when trying to work out which way to set it up on the tripod and aligning the lens, this tripod head works exceptionally well.It is sturdy and well made and will stand the test of time, I'm sure.Defining the nodal point is a little challenging to begin with - but if your organised and make notes on your lens position settings then future sets ups can be achieved with relative ease.
  • Pros: sturdy ( if used with a suitable tripod), Well constructed
  • Cons: a little bulky to transport

Gut aber schwer

MÄX, Amazon
4 February 2013
  • Summary: Der Panokopf entspricht meinen Vorstellungen. Mit Nivelliervorrichtung bekommt man die waagerechte Achse gut in waage. Was allerdings saublöd ist, das man die vertikale Achse nicht anständig in Waage bekommt. Der Kopf ist gut verarbeitet sehr stabil und robust aber dafür auch sehr schwer.

Panoramakopf Manfrotto 303SPH

Stefan, Amazon
17 October 2011
  • Summary: Ich habe bereits mit mehreren Panoramaköpfen gearbeitet (RRS, Novoflex und NodalNinja) und der Manfrotto gehört sicher zu den guten Köpfen. Die Konstruktion ist sehr solide, was sich aber im Gewicht von rund 2.5 Kilo niederschlägt. Der rastbare (Schrittweite 5°-90° in 5° Schritten) Drehteller funktioniert ausgezeichnet. Wer noch kein Stativ besitzt, welches nivelierbar ist, muß noch mit der Niveliereinrichtung rechnen, die nochmal mit gut 100 Euro zu Buche schlägt.
