Nice, but I returned it

  • Summary: I have the older, vertical version of this, and it works great, I use it all the time. I thought the horizontal version would make more sense, keep the camera lower, easier to rotate.

Smooth Action - Ball Head

Sharon, Eagle Optics
21 June 2011
  • Summary: I purchased the Manfrotto Action Grip Tripod head to use mainly for photography. I wasn't sure if this tripod head would work with my digiscope set up due to the weight of the spotting scope. I've tested it out and luckily it works very well. I think it is primarily due to the friction dial.

Everything I hoped for.

  • Summary: This is a great ball head. It does have a few minor quirks. For example when attaching large, heavy telephotos as instructed, the bubble level cannot be seen. And, this is certainly not one of the lightest ball heads around. Still, the item is very solid with great ergonomic design.
  • Pros: durable. great design.
  • Cons: bubble level cannot be seen when using some very large telephoto lenses. A little heavy.

Not my favorite purchase

  • Summary: I am not as impressed with this as I thought I would be. I liked it ok when it was holding my camera and lens only, but add the weigh and height of the flash and bracket and it is very hard to use (my equipment totals 6 lbs this ballhead claims to support 13.2).
  • Pros: well made
  • Cons: Hard to get camera level,harder to use than I thought. Hard to control when camera, flash, bracket are all on the tripod.

Bogen Manfrotto 322RC2 Grip Action Ball Head

jjchan, PriceGrabber
15 December 2005
  • Summary: Just got this ball head and have used it so far to do macro photography. Love the eazy positioning feature. Framing the obj. just right is a no brainer. Able to be switched from right to left hand grip will surely accomodate the "lefty" photog, but is not a big deal for me.
  • Pros: Light weight, quick release, quick and easy positioning of the attached camera.
  • Cons: difficult to do horizontal panning

best grip head

xiaowei, PriceGrabber
25 July 2005
  • Summary: The 322RC2 is the most flexible grip ball head. It can be mounted in three positions: left handed, right handed or vertically. I'm using it vertically right now because it's more convenient and more accurate. It's rated to support 5 lbs when mounted vertically.
  • Pros: Flexible, quick and accurate
  • Cons: none
