Great Head for digiscoping

  • Excerpt: I bought this to replace the Swarovski head which is pretty much garbage. This is more solid, better adjustments, I don't have to use the balance rail with it. Perfect!

Great! Love it!

  • Excerpt: I've used 500$ tripod heads and still love this one for [$]. Smooth, and very easy to use, nothing I don't like about it. Better movement and fluidity from the previous model, not to mention cheaper, huge improvement.

Solid head. Great value

  • Excerpt: I've been shooting stills for years but recently purchased a Nikon D7100 to finally explore new horizons with video so was looking for a nice tripod head (at a reasonable price) that smoothly pans for video and securely holds my new investment in place. I think I found it with the 500AH flat base. It screws on to most tripods, including my Manfrotto 3221WN and lighter Induro travel tripod, is a solid build and I purchased it with a mail-in rebate to boot.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp

  • Excerpt: I bought this from BH for [$] with a [$] dollar rebate. It is a really nice video head for the money. It might be the best tripod head I have ever had. Smooth pans and tilts. Would buy again.

Just what I needed

  • Excerpt: This head works great. My tripod was all set up for still photography with a ball head. I started doing some video and found it very limiting. This head works great with Canon 5d ii and 70-200. So much more stability and nice smooth pan and tilt. I am very happy with the purchase.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Smooth Movement

  • Excerpt: This is the very first fluid video head I have ever owned and to me it works like one of the far more expensive heads. It's quality is amazing and it really is fluid in motion. Can't imagine another being better than this one.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion
  • Cons: None

Great improvement over our consumer head

  • Excerpt: We purchased two of the AVH500AH flat base heads, one for use on a existing tripod, the other for use on an existing geared elevating rig mounted to the back of a pew in church. Normally I run the switcher, but I was the lone ranger for our Christmas concert and ended up running one camera for the 90 minute concert myself so I got a good feel for the new head. So nice to be able to balance the head so I didn't have to lock the tilt after every move.

Great Value for Price

  • Excerpt: Great fluid head for entry level and semi-pros. Priced better than many others and a very adjustable, strong and reliable piece of kit. Have had no issues with it. My only wish is that it's quick release plates worked with all my other manfrotto kit.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp
