Help.

  • Excerpt: I am having a difficult time removing this head from the tripod. It works well but I can't seem to remove it. I'm sure it is something simple but anyone with tips of how to take this head off my tripod would help. Great product and value. Only disappointed with the plastic clamp. It's not secure enough for my Nikon D7000. Especially with the additional battery pack unit installed. But it does work smoothly enough for video and seems better suited for my SOny NEX VG10.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly
  • Cons: Weak Clamp

Great value, great function

  • Summary: I use the 391RC2 head on both my tripod and Manfrotto Car Window Mount and am thrilled with how smoothly it pivots in all directions. For my field research I have to use a window-mounted scope hundreds of times a day to read color bands of shorebirds. This head can easily swivel and then be locked in place so you can have your hands free to take notes or adjust the focus, coming loose again with another twist of the handle.

391RC2

Adorama
21 February 2010
  • Excerpt: I paired this with my 190CXPRO4 tripod. I chose this head because I wanted to take stills and shoot video with my D-SLR. It offers plenty of motion for smooth panning and you can adjust the friction control. The lateral tilt goes 90 degrees to the left and 60 degrees to the right. I was debating between this and a Manfrotto ball head. The ball head will give you more control at ease but the 391RC2 offers the best of both worlds for video + photo.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion
  • Cons: Heavy

OK Product

  • Excerpt: I purchased this head for my daughter to use with her Nikon D40. We mounted it on a Manfrotto 190XB, and it provides decent enough stability. <br /><br />I was disappointed to see that some parts, including the clamp that holds the quick release are made of plastic. There is also not a secondary mechanism to secure the quick release clamp. <br /><br />I suppose this is fine for a camera as light as the D40, but I have to wonder about the durability after a few years.

Great Pan Head!

  • Summary: I have owned the 391rc2 head for several years and have been very pleased with not only the smooth panning, but the durability of the product. Being a hard core western hunter, I put optics and associated equipment to the test while glassing for elk and deer. Manfrotto/Bogen makes a great product, don't let the price fool you!!
