    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.

        Wanted to use it with a Questar Field Model to look at and photograph birds. I found the three adjustments to be much too stiff. I was expecting more of a lighter, micrometer feel. Making adjustments moves the lens and camera way off target. For use shooting wildlife, the subject has to be static like a sea anenome. I never use it.

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

        Hands down the second best photography related purchase I've ever made. Coming from the most basic manfrotto heads this one is miles awat in every aspect.

        The level of precision you can achieve with this head is almost un real. I was able to move quicker with my old head but I would trade that in any day for this item. It does take some getting used to if you've never used a geared unit before but, after one work week of shooting I've definirely gotten the hang of it.

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

          After 18 months of photographing homes for real estate and home builders I finally feel secure with my camera mount. Ballheads are great and I will continue to use one for my nature outings, but for home photography not so great. No more balancing the 5 pounds of camera, remote, light and diffuser with every composition change. A few twists with the fine tuning control knobs for a level composition or the rapid adjustmet control knob for a complete composition change. I no longer have to change LCD screens to insure all is level. The well positioned level on the 410 Junior gives me all the info I need at a glance so I can focus on exposure and compostion.

            Switching from a traditional rotate to lock gearhead to this one has been great. I save more time in post by just getting a good level from the start. Very nice construction. It's especially helpful when reading the horizon line isn't easy.

              I am a professional architectural shooter and was using an older NPC ball head for all of my work until I came accross the 410 Junior. I love this product and cant believe I waited this long to get a geared head. It has slowed me down a little but it has done so in a good way and as I get used to using it Im sure the pace will pick back up to where it was.

                  I use this for architecture only and for that alone it was worth the price. I did not realize just how difficult it was to get everything perfectly level with a ball head until I used this geared head. It saves time both during shooting and in post because everything is quick and accurate. It is not the best choice for fast or even slow-moving subjects, but to lock a position down precisely, it is the way to go. This Manfrotto is about as solid as I could expect and hard to believe that they call it "junior".

                  .I bought this to replace a ball head, I was looking for a tripod head that had more control, with this unit no more loosening one control and and having everything move!
                  the capacity is very good and holds my 5dmkII and the canon 100-400 lens without problem, I think this will solve my problem and not brreak the bank

                  This is a well built unit and is very sturdy.
                  I mounted it on my Manfrotto 055XPROB tripod and cannot believe how stable it is. Using my Tamron 150-600mm lens for crisp craters of the moon is so easy now. As the moon travels out of view, I just follow it precicely with positive and smooth control knobs.

                    I got this to use in my studio with a Nikon D810 using a 105mm Nikon lens. I have to accurately align my camera to the fine art I am shooting. This does the trick.
                    You can move this along 3 axes in minute increments and it will stay exactly where you adjust it.
                    I originally tried to do this with a ball head and it did not work.

                        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.
