Does what it's supposed to do!

  • Excerpt: Had a tripod with a 75 mm ball/claw unit, but not as good as teh Manfrotto. Had an extra 501 head, so I bought this to use with the 501 head on the tripod. Now the setup is good as gold...

  • Excerpt: I purchased this 75mm half ball adapter so I could put various tripod heads on various legs. The most notagble being a 3' slider that I attached directly via the 3/8" threaded screw. I works great, and allows me to attach my slider to one set of legs but have a ablilitty very quickly level the slider and lock it down. The bottom lock in tight enough that there is zero movement, even then the camera is a the farthest point of the slider.

  • Excerpt: Make sure you have the correct mm size before you acquire one of these: just because it's a half ball does not mean it's for the half-assed. A tad expensive but solid as expected.
  • Pros: Fits Well, Improves Tripod Function, Solid/Sturdy
  • Cons: Heavy

love this item

  • Excerpt: I really love this item because you can level your camera so easily. It's also short handle so its not bulky or anything like that. It also goes really well with the manfrotto tripod 535. <br />Overall, I would recommend this to anybody who uses DSLR for shooting.

  • Excerpt: This is perfect for mounting a slider (Edelkrone in this case) directly to tripod instead of attaching it to the head. Well built, Manfrotto quality. Good buy.

Enables a Versatile Field Configuraiton

  • Excerpt: Exactly what I was looking for. I use this with my existing Manfrotto 546B Tripod. I add a Kessler Crane Quick Release base to the half ball and on my Kessler Steath Slider. Next, I add Kessler Quick release utility plates to both the bottom of a 502 Video Head and the bottom of the Slider. With the QR and half ball installed on the tripod, I can quickly switch between mounting the video head or the slider on the tripod.
