Great Head

  • Excerpt: No, it's not a "true" video head but it gets the job don't just fine for me. Spins 360, and for stills can shoot in portrait and landscape. Which knobs to tighten/untighten are intuitive. What more could you ask for?

A good tripod upgrade

  • Excerpt: A very smooth pan head with controls large enough to use in cold weather. My only negative comment is that the quick release plate does not fully lock into the head. When installed on the head, the locking lever sticks out far enough to snag on straps, clothing, etc.
  • Pros: Compact
  • Cons: Flimsy Construction

  • Pros: Compact, Easy to Use, Lightweight

  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Cost, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Light weight
  • Cons: Short Control Handle

Works great

  • Excerpt: I uses this to mount a camera on a custom teleprompter. It holds the weight of the camera fine after some adjustment. It is shipped with the sho set up for sideways mounting. If you need to pan and tilt, make sure you adjust the set pin 90 degrees.
  • Pros: Good Stability, Low profile, Strong Clamp
  • Cons: Weak Clamp
