Great value, very steady, but heavy

  • Excerpt: This is a great product. It is very steady, easy to use and can adjust the shooting angle really easily and smoothly. The only cons I can think of is its weight. You can feel it is heavy.

  • Excerpt: Great design for the quick release plate: nicely clicks when locks, has a double secure locking mechanism, large surface area. I don't like the redundancy on the swivel locking, and the overall head is really heavy.

  • Excerpt: I use this on my tripod and monopod, and it holds the camera solid, and is easy to use in terms of manipulating the camera into position.
