Would be great for mirror less or a DSLR with no big lens. I will likely use it with a 4x5 field camera but a Toyo Rail Studio camera does not do so well on it. That is a long load but well within the claimed weight it supports. Seems to flex a bit much.

Although a big fan of quality ballheads, I ended to buy this p&t head for my Manfrotto 055XPRO tripod And I do not regret it at all. Very well constructed, ergonomic, and with a superb quick release and plate, with double security mechanism, this head is a superb value for money. Really good.

I use this head on my personal tripod, and it is so good, I ordered 2 for work. I have had it over 5 years, and still works just like new.

Manfrotto quality. Well engineered piece of equipment.

I liked this head in most ways, but I am selling it after owning it only a few months. I shoot spherical stitches, which require pointing the camera straight up. This lens only allows the camera to point up 30 degrees! Another very small gripe, one I could live with, is the locks tighten down funny.

Very stable when used with my canon 100-400 mm mk2.I use this head with the manfrotto MK055XPRO3 Tripod, not the best combination to trek up a hillside with as they are quite heavy,with the head fitted to the tripod they fit inside the manfrotto TRIPOD BAG UNPADDED 80CM with ease.

I've owned many tripods over the years but this is without a doubt the best tripod head I've ever had. It's incredibly easy to use.
