    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.

    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.

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

      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.

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

          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.

                      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 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.

                            Acquired for taking macro photos. So easy to perfectly line up the subject and know it will not move when you take your hand off the head. There is just a bit of backlash in the gears but it is easy to get used to and correct for. Nice if it were lighter. Overall a great product for specialized use.

                            I use these in a commercial studio shooting home furnishings, and these heads make it a breeze to line up our shots and keep the angles consistent throughout. They're solidly built so there's no issue when using one to mount a camera to the ceiling and shoot large rugs.

                              This is the smaller of the two Manfotto Greaed Heads. I was thinking of getting the bigger one and I'm glad I picked the smaller one. Just right in my pinion. Feels good and solid and works great for my Real Estate Photography. Being a wildlife photographer for 30 years and all I used was my ArcaSwiss.

                                Like other reviews have said, this thing is rock solid. Only drawback might be the knobs can get difficult to turn. Not too big of a deal, but just know it. It's also a bit heavy.

                                But it doesn't creep and it's been amazing to me in the 2 years I've used mine. I'm getting another!

                                I use this tripod head for real estate photography. Getting straight verticals is essential in this field. this head allows micro adjustments in all axises and is very precise. Once again manfrotto base a winner

                                If you read any reviews from professional real estate or architecture photographers, they'll tell you about how useful a geared tripod head is. I've put off buying one because of the cost, but it's well worth the investment! The only downside, is that the head is rather large and heavy. It's a good thing during use (it feels solid), but it is a pain to store.
