I expected more!

Claudia, Adorama

  • Excerpt: I have paired this ballhead with the Manfrotto 055CXPRO4 Carbon Fiber. As tight as I put the camera on ballhead, it still creeps each time. It is not as accurate as it should be. It creeps each time no matter what I do. Once it creeps, it stays in place.
  • Pros: Large Range of Motion
  • Cons: Unstable

Exactly what I was looking for

  • Excerpt: This Midi ball Head fit my purpose. I really like the locking features with the handle like knob instead of the regular turn knob. I would recommend this Manfrotto 498RC2 Midi Ball Head. And also, I loved Adorama's competitive price.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp

Great until it broke

Adorama
25 January 2013
  • Excerpt: It worked great until the tripod I had it on fell over while stowed. The tripod fell over onto a hardwood floor and was not extended. The locking mechanism in the ball head no longer functions, though the friction knob still works so I am able to use that to lock the head.

  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp
