Great head for a monopod

Jim, B&H Photo
9 January 2016
  • Excerpt: Using 460mMG on 479 tripod instead of more usual 234RC head. Gives much more flexibility with adjustments in 3 axes instead just front to back tilt, at a cost of only about 200 more grams.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fits Well, Flexible, Improves Tripod Function, Light, Solid/Sturdy
  • Cons: None

  • Excerpt: This is an upgrade from a Bogen 3D Junior head and mounted it to a new Monfrotto 290 Extra Tripod. Great addition to my kit! It is lighter, the ruberized-rounded knobs are much more compact with the head and it has the QR plate w/safety lock.

7 Years Using this Head

Dan, B&H Photo
15 November 2014
  • Excerpt: There are lots of nice reviews for this head so I'll say something new. Unlike a ball head and probably other pan heads, this head is offset. This places the center of balance not at the camera plate screw but AT THE PLACE WHERE THE LENS CONTACTS THE CAMERA.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fits Well, Improves Tripod Function, Solid/Sturdy

The perfect lightweight 3-way head

Brad M, Adorama
5 December 2013
  • Excerpt: I used to own the big 405 geared head and although it was pretty beefy and had smooth controls, it was overkill for a lot of stuff, especially after I moved away from big DSLRs with 70-200/2.8s and the like over ten years ago.

Fullfeed my needs

Michael O, B&H Photo
17 June 2013
  • Excerpt: I do mostly photos but I began to make some movies. Using a standard ball head for this purpose gave me poor results. I need a head where I can move the camera on one axe only. This head permits this. I do not want standard handles and want to save space. This head provide this.

Just what I was looking for

J.K. Putnam, Adorama
2 April 2013
  • Excerpt: After never really falling in love with ball-heads I wanted to go back to the pan/tilt/swivel design, and I wanted a head that would work with a telephoto that didn't have long tightening arms sticking out all over the place.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Solid/Sturdy
