Good quality fluid head

  • Excerpt: Tripod heads are one of those things that cost more than the camera you put on them... at least if you want a really good one. This is one of the better low cost ones (where &quot;low cost&quot; is relative).<br /><br />I do not like it that the quick plate is built in since I like to use the Kessler Quick Release system. So I have to stack a quick release system on top of their quick release plate. But it works.
  • Pros: Good Stability, Solid construction
  • Cons: Heavy

Great Tripod Head, Well Worth The Cost!

  • Excerpt: I purchased this head to go with my Acebil legs. I have been very pleased in the weeks since I received it. Panning and tilting is very smooth, the counterbalance feature has already saved my camera a couple of times and the balance recorder is a MASSIVE time saver.<br /><br />The head feels a little heavy compared to the tripod I had before, but I actually like the wait as it helps reduce vibrations.
  • Pros: Good Stability

Top shelf as expected from Manfrotto

  • Excerpt: I am a novice but had no trouble figuring out (and following illustrations) as to how to use this with a cobra crane and a Manfrotto Sympla matte rig. It is heavy enough without being too heavy for one person to move. Quality throughout.
  • Pros: Good Stability, Unfolds Quickly
