Excerpt: I had Manfrotos Geared head and although it was very enjoyable it was bulky and difficult to work with and travel with. I was looking for a lightweight, fairly compact, strong, easy to use, and precise replacement. This is it.
Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp
Excerpt: I am very happy with this Ballhead. I recently purchased an Arkay 6' Jr. Monostand for my home studio. This required that I purchase the camera gear/ballhead separately. I tried three different ones (returning each one) until I found and purchased the Manfrotto Magnesium Ballhead.
Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Secure Positioning
Summary: This product is extremely easy and quick to adjust when setting up a shot, light pressure is all thats needed to secure my Canon 7D and Canon EF 100-400mmL lens with complete security when taking wildlife photo's. It's a very high quality bit of kit that you will only buy once..........
Pros: Durable, Great Features, Lightweight, Simple Controls
Summary: Nicely made head unit. The controls operate smoothly. The lock and release mechanism is very good. A minor problem with lens droop using a camera with a 300mm zoom mounted but nothing excessive.
Summary: Wer häufig zwischen einem Video- und einem Fotokopf von Manfrotto wechseln muss, ist mit diesem Kugelkopf sehr gut bedient. Die große RC5 Platte kann permanent an der Kamera bleiben, da sie auf beide Köpfe passt. Die Kugel lässt sich sehr geschmeidig bewegen.
