Love this grip!

Nikon FE, Adorama
12 November 2013
  • Excerpt: Grip holds the d4; 70-200; sb910 without slipping.<br /><br />Quick to adjust and re-lock in place.<br /><br />Only drawback is loading the QR plate -- have to angle it into the bracket which is a bit awkward -- prefer sliging it into the slot with a button release.<br /><br />Otherwise, this grip head would rate 5 stars.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp

Unique ball head with a glitch

Easterly Lily, Adorama
24 March 2013
  • Excerpt: This ball head is unique, and highly usable, but it has a bad defect. The eighth inch shutter pin port in the head handle is manufactured incorrectly, and pin easily drops out. The port is too big for the pin. I've talked to Vanguard about this, and they are working to correct it, but until they do, I'd highly recommend waiting to purchase. Even with the pin taped in, it wabbles in the port.
  • Pros: Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Smooth Preformance, Strong Clamp
  • Cons: 18 Falls Out, Manufacturing problem

Good solid tripod head

Dominic, WEX
27 November 2013
  • Summary: I've used this now 5-6 times on location. It seemed ideal when I saw the description, The pistol grip with attachment to the camera release has been around for years but this certainly is a cleaver adaptation of the idea. The mechanics of the ball head are good, a well made bit of kit with good adjustment for locking, rotation etc.
  • Pros: Durable, Great Features, Lightweight, Simple Controls
