Excerpt: Easy to use with controls that make sense and can be located without taking your eye away from the viewfinder. Complete workhorse that lasts, I bought this after using a friend's. He has been using his for years and shoots constantly, this has stood up flawlessly.
Pros: Attaches Firmly, easy to use, Fast, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp
Excerpt: I have had mine for 4 years and it performs flawlessly, even when left in my car at minus 25C. Used for Nikon D700 and D800 and for Mamiya RB67. Really like the ease of of tightening and release and the ability to adjust the friction to the camera weight.
Excerpt: So far I have to give this head 5 stars. It's very easy to use much unlike the old head I was using. It stays where it is locked and does not move while locking. I can also use the plate from my old head with this ballhead.
Excerpt: I've owned this for about two years and I like it more and more. Used with a Nikon D800e, Hasselblad and 4x5 view camera, it's well made, smooth and doesn't budge once locked down. It's a little heavy (so four stars rather than five) but I still take it with the Gitzo GT253 on many day hikes.
Pros: Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp
Excerpt: used for a medium format and view camera. The hydrostatic system allows to freeze with two fingers my view camera and in a secure way. The mounting plate is awesome, a little bit big for my medium format but it fits so well with the large format.
Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Softness of the mechanism, Strong Clamp
Excerpt: Had this head for for less then a week and it stopped locking. Was on an assignment and when I went to make an adjustment the head just went limp and would not lock at all. Both the main locking knob and friction knob appear to have stopped functioning for whatever reason.
Excerpt: Easy to use and provides a good stable base for camera and lens. You can quickly lock the head into position and the ability to pan is a plus! I had a pistol grip and it creeped with a heavy lens. It also had some limits when shooting a vertical....this on is great!
Pros: Easily Adjusted, Good Footing, Lightweight, Locks In Tight, Smooth Movement
