Not for Heavy Lenses

BrianT, B&H Photo
3 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: The unit looks sturdy and well-made, BUT ... as other reviewers have said, I had trouble with the tension adjustment. With my lighter lenses, there was no happy medium where movement was fluid with trigger depressed, but position was held solid when the trigger was released.
  • Cons: Not Very Fluid Movement, Weak Clamp

It can point upward

  • Excerpt: There's a horizontal pan control at the top right of the head. Loosen it and swing the camera 90 degrees rignt. Tighten it, and you can shoot straight up. For me, it's a completely adequite work-around.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Price, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp
  • Cons: Heavy, Heavy Trigger Squeeze

Much more than expected

Nick, B&H Photo
24 February 2015
  • Excerpt: I live in a retirement community that has a lot of predator bird action, such as Ospreys, Eagles and occasional hawk. I have to hand hold my camera with an 18-300 zoom lens because my current heads will not allow a fluid up and down and pan mode in a smooth motion.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp

It cannot not point upward

CK, B&H Photo
6 December 2014
  • Excerpt: I tried to use it with a spotting scope for night sky observation and found it could not point upward. Also under high magnification (20X plus) the creep makes it useless.It is suitable for landscape photography as long as you don't need to point upward.
  • Pros: Good Stability

Attention Panasonic Owners!

Movick, B&H Photo
10 September 2014
  • Excerpt: This is a terrific and innovative ball head. I am using this for my Panasonic MFT cameras and it is more than robust enough to remain stable and not creep when longer telephoto lenses are attached with little or no tension applied.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable

Helpful piece of equipment.

Tom in TX, B&H Photo
7 July 2014
  • Excerpt: I have it on a sturdy monopod with my D700 and Sigma (Bigma)50-500mm lens, both of which are heavy, to say the least. It helps keep them steady, not to mention, saves the weight from being around my neck.
  • Pros: Durable

Amazing pistol grip ball head

MIMO, B&H Photo
12 May 2014
  • Excerpt: It is really well made. Very solid. I love the shutter trigger on the handle. I had to get the cable for the Sony A65 but it works perfectly. Press the trigger half way to focus then all the way to shoot. My only complain it is that my hand gets tired after a while by pressing the handle grip.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Strong Clamp
