The 391RC2 is excellent for photography providing an easy to position base for many photos; though it struggled to remain rigid with a canon 7d / 70-200F2.8 lens mounted out it; the lens sagging down all the time. Using it with my 7D i had hoped it would provide much needed stability when using it for video; unfortunately the friction mounts in the head varied too much when moving the camera horizontally which resulted in video that didn't pan smoothly at all -- far better than hand held but still to judder-y for my liking; the vertical titling motion didn't suffer from this though.
If you are wanting an easy to setup head for photography its definitely an easy to position stable head and a great upgrade for anyone with a simple ball head; for video you may want to look elsewhere
I do use it with some quite heavy lenses (70-200 f2.8) which the head does cope with, but it comes into it's own with something lighter. Smooth, precise, easily adjusted. If you're going to do more than occasional videoing then a longer handle may be more useful, but it is intended to be compact.
There is only one real criticism - and it's a big one.
The design of the handle is terrible. I'm not talking about the shape or the length of the handle.
I'm referring to the positioning of it. It has been positioned at about 15+ degrees off of the vertical axis. Every other tripod head (including all other Manfrotto heads) I have used has the handle at 90 degrees to the hinge of the axis that it turns. Being 15 degrees off, when you turn the head horizontally (left & right) it performs adequately. However, turning the head vertically (up and down) it can't help but also twist on the horizontal plane (unless you have the base locked tight!). In other words, you're shooting a scene that you want to adjust your camera downwards ever so gently, but the head will tilt down AND to the right also! NOT good. AND irrespective of this, when you grasp the handle to adjust the vertical axis, the handle itself will rotate about a quarter turn - enough for it to lock without you intending it to - very annoying.
4 stars for style and build quality.
A generous 1 stars for design!
Would I buy this a second time around? No.
