Good Panning, Tilt not so much.

Chris Borgman, B&H Photo
23 September 2014
  • Excerpt: I mostly use this when shooting stills because getting a good tilt movement is almost impossible without so slight panning, even if you don't want it. There are no separate tension for pan and tilt, turning the handle tightens the tension.
  • Pros: Good Stability

Good Panhead; GREAT price.

Bird man, B&H Photo
23 January 2012
  • Excerpt: I use the Panhead for my birding spotting scope and for my digital camera with telephoto lenses. It is great for both uses, up to abut 300mm,with tele-convertors on the camera.. It is light and easy to use. Only one handle. There is a little play in the head sometimes, but it is not a problem.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion

Great Addition to the Tripod

Coues Hunter, B&H Photo
19 December 2011
  • Excerpt: I purchsed this product to use binoculars and a spotting scope while hunting. I had looked at other pan heads that were much more expensive and was pleased to find the Velbon PH-157Q. After attachment to my SLIK tripod, I headed out to the wild to look for deer. The head panned nice and smooth.

Most Excellent

Chuck De Luck, B&H Photo
13 December 2011
  • Excerpt: Happy? You bet! Nice metal construction, the head locks down tight at an angle and the head still pivots nicely. Granted a more expensive fluid head would probably be better, but for the price I can make it work. BONUS surprise !!
