Up to Snuff

wahoowest, Adorama

  • Excerpt: Good mid-size head. If clamp tightened more securely, I'd give it five stars. Giving Giotto its due, perhaps I am spoiled by Manfrotto's proprietary lever system, which can't be beat. Ideal travel head, as compact, light in weight, but sturdy.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion
  • Cons: Weak Clamp

Along with Manfrotto 055CXPROB

Neopulse, Adorama
4 February 2013
  • Excerpt: It's very sturdy and to me it's an investment for future cameras and even video cameras. It has a large base as it's release head in comparison to the 498RC2. It's very sturdy even when holding a D700 along with a 70-200mm VRII at every angle including a Nikon flash (eg: SB-600). Where stillness is a must along with maintaining a certain level for long exposures especially landscapes in low light.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good range of motion, Good Stability, Strong Clamp
  • Cons: Heavy

Great Ball Head

Carson, Adorama
23 August 2012
  • Excerpt: Received this ball head a couple of days ago and on first glance almost sent it back. However I got a chance to use it tonight and I love it. The friction is easily controlled and the motion is extremely smooth. Once locked in place it stays put. Moves into portrait mode with the same ease. I am extremely happy with this product.

Big Head

3D Guru, WEX
24 September 2014
  • Summary: I purchased one of these to go on top of an 057 carbon fibre tripod. The first one i purchased had a slight fault which WEX sorted asap. Its replacement is perfect - super smooth, easily adjustable and with the RC4 platform I can support a pro body and large tele lens with no problem. Love the fact that all the levers can be a adjusted so as to be at the optimum angle for you to make any changes to the ball heads position.
  • Pros: Easily Adjusted, Good Footing, Locks In Tight, Smooth Movement

not as smooth as expected

chrome35, WEX
28 August 2014
  • Summary: Not smooth, junks at it over the central point so a fine adjustment is hard.Maybe a product defect but with out buying more of the same do not know. Wex were helpful but unsure if its a defect or or just a characteristic.Have retuned it for refund as at the price it has to be a smooth ball head.
  • Pros: Compact
  • Cons: Jerky Movement

Good head with 1 problem

adamskiting, WEX
19 August 2014
  • Summary: I overall like this design in function. It is very strong and holds my D800 + lenses. The first 1 I had broke as the toggle which you use to adjst the ball head is held in by a really flimsy screw which snapped on a shoot, rendering the head locked and useless. Luckily I had a spare head and this was replaced by WEX.
  • Pros: Locks In Tight
  • Cons: Heavy, Pin Which Holds Toggle
