Great for field photography

  • Excerpt: Having tried and returned another squeeze-grip tripod head, I am pleased that this one works fairly well for me. Despite arthritis in thumbs/wrists, I can make this work. For some reason, I thought it had a panning function. Unless you have a REALLY steady turning hand, it doesn't.
  • Pros: Good Stability, Large Range of Motion

Outstanding !

  • Excerpt: I have another one of these for my Manfrotto 055 tripod and I love it. It has great range of motion and can be used from either side, which is important to me because I am left handed. I purchased a Manfrotto 190 tripod without a head and I needed one. So I bought another 324RC2.

Works well for lighter lenses

  • Excerpt: The pistol grip is comfortable in your hand and has a good feel. The ball is smooth and fluid. One challenge is the level of friction when using heavier rigs. I was shooting with my Canon 7D and a Canon 24-70 L-Series f/2.8 (big glass) and the head would not securely hold the system in place.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Large Range of Motion
  • Cons: Weak Clamp

Great when new, not so great now

Steve, B&H Photo
25 February 2014
  • Excerpt: I loved this head wneh it was new, but after less than a year of use, it cannot be tightened (using the set screw and/or the friction wheel) to where it adequately holds a DSLR with even a small to medium lens in any position other than horizontal - if pointed somewhat down, in a vertical position,...
  • Pros: Large Range of Motion

Incredible control!

  • Excerpt: Replaced a Bogen 3025 head on a Manfrotto 3001BPRO tripod with this magnificent 324RC2 joystick head. The ease and quickness of changing angle of view is amazing with this new head. It easily supports my Nikon D80 with battery grip and a 70-300mm or 500mm mirror lens.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Extraordinary Control, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp

Quick and Easy to Use

  • Excerpt: I just had to buy this head after borrowing a tripod that had one during a photo workshop. It was very easy to manipulate and control but provides a solid base for large SLRs. The pistol grip control makes control very easy. The camera seat is solid.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Easy To Manipulate, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp
  • Cons: Heavy, Must Remove To Carry
