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. It's nice to have the gearing when you're doing precision stuff in the studio but 99% of the time I'm working in the field. Furthermore I used to drive to locations whereas now I take the subway or walk so weight is a big consideration.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Light, Precise, Solid/Sturdy

Just what I was looking for

J.K. Putnam, Adorama

  • 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. Though with a support weight of only 6.6 pounds I had my doubts about this product, but the Manfrotto name got me to dish out the cash. Thankfully this head holds up my 5D and 100-400 L series solidly.

Excellent Head

Adorama
3 December 2010
  • Excerpt: I use this head with a Nikon D200 with the MB-D200 grip. It's a heavy camera, heavier than the suggested load rating on this head. Still, the head is rock solid. Personally I believe the weight rating of the head is greater six pounds. <br /><br />The RC2 quick disconnect is a solid design with a safety catch. The knobs on the head are large enough to be easily adjusted, locked or just snugged for tension. The knobs are rubberized for easy loosening.

Exceeds ball head usability

Adorama
4 December 2009
  • Excerpt: This pan head is far superior to any ball head I have used.<br />It is a set and forget tension adjust, makes for<br />smooth fore and aft transitioning. No creep after set tension.<br />No need to fully lock and unlock as are ball heads when need to reposition.

Nice flexible head

M Applebee, Amazon
22 February 2014
  • Summary: I considered this because I wanted a light head for a smaller tripod, and it's worked out great. You do have to be careful that its tightened before picking up and moving. Because of the friction, the camera may be stable when centered over the tripod, but if you lift it without fully tightening, the camera may swing about and hit the tripod (it can be moved to so many positions, even ones you might never need to use)

Incredibly light

MattB, WEX
28 October 2013
  • Summary: Well worth owning this head as it weighs nearly nothing. Together with a CF tripod you have an ultra lightweight tripod setup for traveling/walking.Each of the three axis are adjustable and the knobs are easy to lock in, but you cant quickly reposition your shot, other than pan which you can leave unlocked and still be quite stable. So its no good for sports/wildlife, but fine for still things.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Locks In Tight
  • Cons: Difficult To Adjust
