Excerpt: Awesome tripod head. I do event videography and needed something to go on top of my manfrotto monopod. Super smooth, love the product. I had an older 701 fluid head that was discontinued. This new head has a different plate but it still fits in with my older 701!
Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Old 701 Plate Still Fits, Strong Clamp
Excerpt: I was looking for a monopod head for my dslr camera, but I wasn't sure what to buy for it. However, a salesperson at the tripod section helped me to find a right one for my dslr camera. He was very nice and seemed very knowable about the product.
Excerpt: The head I received was missing two plastic parts. One holds the camera in place and the other one keeps the screw from falling out of the plate. You can buy bargain basement tripods with heads which don't have to be assembled by the end user.
Excerpt: I bought this video head because it was listed as the upgrade for the 701 HDV mini fluid video head. Even though the 701 HDV was marketed as a prosumer head, I really liked how lightweight and flexible it was. After working with the 701 HDV, this head feels really really big.
Excerpt: This is a great head, but ... and I say but because I expect a little more attention to detail from Manfrotto. The head arrived way too tight on the pan, we had to losen the center screw and that's kind of a cop out way of handling the issue.
Excerpt: Solid fluid head works with canon 5d & canon xf300 on a Digital Juice SlyderDolly. I was happy that the base plate matched other sachtler tripods we have...so it seems standard, which makes it easy for us to switch which cameras are on the slider.
Excerpt: This is a huge upgrade over the other entry level manfrottos I have used in the past. The tilt and pan are very smooth for me. I don't use much drag, so I can't really comment on that but overall I am amazed by the quality.
