    I love this tripod head! I bought a new tripod head because my old one couldn't hold up my canon 7d and 70-200 f/2.8 is mkII and battery grip. This head can hold all of that with a master flash in the hot shoe as well and then some. with that weight this gear head is very precise and steady with no slipping or creeping. When adjusting, you have a choice of precise movements or a quick release to make larger adjustments. The only 2 negative things that I can possibly think of: you can only look up up to a 30 degree angle, however you can just reverse mount the camera/lens on the quick release plate (not a big deal for me). The second negative (shown in photo) is the space in-between the left/right tilt knob (ONLY if you have a full sized body or battery grip)is a little tight especially if you have bigger fingers. I would not use this for sports, action, travel, video, events, or wildlife because it is so precise and has a little too much weight to it for these.

    I needed a head that could give me precise control on the 3 axes. This is exactly what this head does, and it does it well. However ...
    The head won't allow your camera to "look straight up" : one of the buttons hits the central part of the head preventing it to look up more than app 30 degrees.
    This wouldn't be so much of a problem if it were easy to mount the camera facing aft on the head, but the mouning plate will only fit one way on the head. The workaround is to unscrew the plate slightly (with a screwdriver or coin), turn it 180 degress, fasten it again, mount the camera back on the head, turn it sideways and up... what a hassle.
    Except for this not so clever design, the head works great. I'm pleased with it.

    Comments about Manfrotto 410 Junior Geared Head - Supports 11 lbs (5kg):

    I use this head for architectural and product photography.
    This is a fairly compact head that fits easily into a tripod bag. Adjustments are precise and repeatable. There is a spring loaded ring around the knob to allow fast (coarse) position changes. I comes with the RC4 quick release base as part of the casting. The RC4 is the most stable quick release I've used - it is fast and reliable.
    If you are looking to do panoramas, you will need something like the Manfrotto 454 sliding plate to position the camera over the pan axis; however, a pair of these is good to have for macro positioning and in panoramas for positioning the lens on its so-called nodal point. The degree markings on the three axes are not positioned very accurately and are probably more for looks, as I don't really need them for anything.
    Mount this on a good sturdy tripod and you have a solid platform for precision, long-exposure shots.
    I do know a number of other professional photographers who also use the 410 and are just as pleased as I am. I now consider a geared head a must for architectural and product/macro studio photography.

      Architectural Photography is what its used for.
      The quick release is great and the geared adjustment is key for lining up things in the shot.

      On the one hand it is kinda heavy but on the other I hope that means it's durable. Only had it for a couple of weeks but so far so good.

          I work with architectural photography and this geared head is perfect for what I do. I was toying with buying the bigger more expensive head and I'm glad I didn't. It's light but yet beefy enough to hold my Nikon D800 with battery pack. It took a little getting use to from my tilt head but I love it. The mount shoe is different form all my other heads which is an issue for me if I want to pull this camera off and mount it to any of my other tripods.

              We have purchased many of the Manfrotto 400s. These are very nice, but $ and hard to afford when you are buying in quantity. This smaller head has ample cablility for our small camera uses.

                  I use this for food photography and I have recently started upgrading my equipment. This particular geared head is the answer I've been looking for for quite some time. Manfrotto features solid products - high quality. The knobs offer precise geared movement - solving the problem I had with sudden movements after re-locking another head I was using. No more! I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for precise geared movement with easy adjusting features.

                    I shoot real estate and architecture and have been using a ball head. I learned of this gear head and ordered it. From the first moment of using it, I loved it. I can level my shots with great ease, and make small adjustments as needed. My post-processing time is shorter since all of my images are level now. The mounting plate is very substantial. Once I becomes familiar with which knob controlled what direction, I was sailing.

                        I bought this primarily for landscape and hummingbird photography. It allows very precise adjustments to be made quickly. I have also used it for portraits.

                        The weight is a bit heavy but worth it for the capability. I would like the camera attachment screw to have its own tightening device.

                          Well, it's pretty good, but when I adjust one axis it affects another axis. Basically I'm using it for stop motion animation and it's hard to keep my verticals when I adjust the horizontals and vice versa. It also seems to sag a tiny bit over time, despite tightening it, which is horrible for stop motion or time lapse. Maybe the larger model is better made? All in all, it's not bad but not as great as people have made it out to be. Maybe it's just the particular unit I have.

                              This geared head is heavy and it takes strong hands to adjust but it does the job for architectural photography. Movements are precise, it stays in position, and the camera is securely attached. Bubble level is handy for leveling the tripod in the first shot, but after that, a bubble level in the camera's hotshoe supplementing the in-camera level is more useful. I opted for an aluminum tripod for added stability, especially when photographing exteriors on windy days.

                                Must have when you want to do small adjustments. Best for table top work.

                                  Works perfectly. I've never been disappointed with any of Manfrotto's products.

                                      I have used a medium format; Mamiya, it handles great. The geared head is a great feature. Defiantly worth the money

                                        I am using this head in a studio setup for macro work. Along with a macro focusing rail, I have complete control over the framing of my photograph. It allows me to make the very small adjustments that are required in this type of work. Solid, well made product.

                                          This geared head is amazing. It's ability to be adjusted in 3 directions ensures that you get the exact angle you're looking for every time. And once you set it, it stays put. It's also able to accommodate the longer, heavier lenses, which is a real plus if you're into wildlife photography.

                                            I love this head very much. It provides excellent support to my equipment. I really love the fact I can make minute adjustments on the fly with ease and pretty quick.

                                              I work as an architectural photographer and had been using a Manfrotto 3-way head with the threaded handles (loosen, move camera, tighten). This geared head is easier to use and I find it's more precise, which is very important when trying to get perfectly straight lines.

                                              The knobs take a bit of strength to move - I was expecting to use a lighter touch. But this doesn't affect its precision or anything other than strain on my hands.

                                              Overall, it's my go-to head for my work and I enjoy using it. Very well made, stands up to Manfrotto quality.

                                              OK, maybe I'm biased but I love this head. Having gone from a RocketFish ([*]ball-head to this one, there's a WORLD of difference. Personally, I love the gear-based adjustments, which allow me to tweak things, very precisely. Something I've never been able to do, before. I use this head for a couple of things. One, I have a bird spotting scope that I attach to my camera, on occasion, to do moon shots, and actually shoot birds. With all of my other heads, there's always been a small amount of "drift" when I position the scope and lock the head... not so with this one. That, to me, is worth its weight in gold. The one drawback in the gearing system is that it is somewhat, not a lot, but somewhat coarse. For the price, Manfrotto could have geared it down, just a bit, for more precise adjustment. It's not terrible, though. I love the thing.
