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?
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.
Excerpt: Got this head for a slider. It works well even with a DSLR. Plastic looking material but does the job. When tilting and rotating, it is not as smooth as the others but for just sliding purposes it is okay.
Excerpt: I purchased this item to use with my Manfrotto carbon fiber tripod. I will use it primarily for birding. The combination of the tripod and the head makes a nice sturdy, yet light weight, platform for my Swaroski 65 MM spotting scope.
Pros: Attaches Firmly, Cost, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Light weight
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.
Excerpt: I use this head with my Nikon D90 with the 105mm macro and 18-300mm and it works outstanding. With the handle it is easy to rotate and pan the camera. Just make sure the plate is firmly seated and you're on the way to easy photography.
Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp
