Great for specialized use

Mark the Mycologist, Adorama
13 June 2013

Great Studio Head

Navy Shooter, Adorama
2 April 2012
  • Excerpt: I used the Junior version of this in my studio for years and loved it. Then one day I found this one and it's bigger knobs are softer and larger and easier to use with gloves on. The motion is just as smooth, but the quick release knob is larger too and also easier to operate. The only head I'll ever use in my studio. Came here today to buy another one.
  • Pros: Easy levelling, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Precise Motion
  • Cons: Expensive

Great for my purpose

yc, Adorama
29 December 2008
  • Excerpt: I use this head for macro (Canon 40D+Tamron 180mm+macro rails), and movie projector on the side as well. An over kill for my purpose but works great for me. It does creek a little over time (as in movie projector's case, you can see the movie screen a little tilted after a few hours. But I've never have any problem for regular macro shootings. Considering the price, there might be better options out there.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion
  • Cons: Heavy

Beefy, well constructed unit.

Aussie Fine Art Photographer., Adorama
27 January 2008
  • Excerpt: The Pro-Digital Geared Head is a solid unit, with quick adjustments and geared adjustments with no backlash. It is a rugged unit and should last a very long time, at a price that is affordable compared to other heads. I found this unit especially useful in macro photography and portraits, allowing the ability for framing to be spot on, and reproducible if need be.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Fine adjustments, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp
