  • Excerpt: This is the same head I had before, but broke. this is an acceptable head for my use as I don't use my tripod all the time. Would not reccomend for heavy use. Clamps are not the strongest, but are not weak by any means.

Best AccessoryI've bought this year

Maggie, WEX
1 August 2013
  • Summary: I have had a Slik Pro II Tripod for a few years but hardly used it because the ball-head that came with it was difficult to adjust. It also let my lenses drift. This two way head is unbelievably easy to adjust even with your eye at the viewfinder.
  • Pros: Compact, Easily Adjusted, Locks In Tight, Smooth Movement
