4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic quality for the price, 29 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hahnel BH-30 360 Degree Panoramic RotationQuick Release Ball Head (Camera)
I bought this to upgrade my budget tripod and it is vastly superior to the pan and tilt head that came with it. In fact I may not bother replacing the legs for a while, the new head has improved stability so much its no longer a priority. The ball and socket arrangement is much faster to set up than a pan/tilt and the separate rotation movement allows basic video panning with a very smooth action for a non-fluid head. Build quality is better than I expected and the quick release mechanism is fast and effective and has no obvious play once the camera is locked in. After using it for 6 months or so I have noticed that the locking mechanism does cause travel so you have to compensate when positioning. This is most noticeable on the rotary setting, For the price I can live with it for now. The only thing missing is a spirit level to remove the guesswork in setting a level horizon (Update: I've since bought a hot-shoe model for £5 on Ebay which removes the problem!). For the travel during adjustment and the lack of spirit level I give it only 4 stars.
