      Sturdy kit

      Perfect for attaching a ball head to a flat surface or older tripod. Sturdy, precise. Well up the Manfrotto standards.

      I purchased this item prior to any reviewer mentioning that it does not do any leveling.

      I had been mis-led by a user review on a different site that indicated that you could level you head with it, just not the same range of motion as when on a proper tripod.

      I was dissapointed to find out that there is zero range of movement - my Manfrotto 509HD Head simply sits snugly and stares straight ahead - absolutely no ability to adjust its horizon at all.

      Also beware of the "Manfrotto 438 Leveler" - it is made to attach to a tripod and if you try to use it on a slider for example you will need to raise it up slightly because its release lever will scrape the surface of your slider carraige.

      Comments about Manfrotto 325N Video Head Bowl Adapter Kit:

      I bought this to use with my Manfrotto 504hd, and it works great on my manfrotto aluminum tripod. I'm very satisfied with the construction and ease of use. I' m not at all dissatisfied with not being able to level the 504hd on the 75mm bowl. That was expected. Not a big deal to level via leg adjustment, a bit slower but Ok.

        I bought a Cinevate slider and realized later that it did not support my Manfrotto tripod. Ran across this adapter and am so happy! Everything works great now.

            Comments about Manfrotto 325N Video Head Bowl Adapter Kit:

            I bought this to attach my 75mm ball head to an IGUS slider and also thought it would be great to build a small HI-Hat. It does in fact accept a 75mm ball head, though it would have been nice to have a method for attaching the 100mm-75mm ring adapter it comes with more permanently. As soon as you remove the head, the ring falls off and rolls away.

            Also I fully expected, like any other ball accessory, that you could do some leveling. Nope. The head sits straight on top. You must level the legs to create a level platform before you attach your head.

                This thing works I guess. You get very little ball head adjustment out of it though, and for the cost it should be much better. You can adapt a ball head to a flat plate much cheaper with the same functionality using some large diameter washers stacked up below the ball head.

                  Love this thing!! If you have a bowl type fluid head, this thing works wonders for mounting to a flat base slider, car hostess tray setup, motorcycle mount, etc. It's like a necessity to have in your tool kit, because you never know when you want to use the fluid head with a dolly that has a flat base.

                    Device does as advertised. It has two Bowl Head Adapters that will accept most tripod heads which is great!

                    However, this video head bowl adapter kit only allows the tripod head to remain upright at 90 degrees. Obviously you can still pan and tilt but any leveling will have to be done with the tripod legs instead of the head.

                                  for a jib arm. I bought a cheaper jib arm that just had the screw for the camera on the end. I bought this adapter to attach my Mafratto head to it and it worked perfectly. I can seamlessly transfer my tripod head for the sticks to the jib in twenty seconds. Highly recommend for that.

                                  The product is as described, and solid metal. Two notable things:
                                  - The 319 adapter from 100mm to 75mm WAS included. The other reviews made me order an extra 319, now I've got an extra RMA to do.

                                  - As far as leveling, the mechanism is not nearly as flexible as standard bowl mounts, but it does have a bit for wiggle room for leveling the head.

                                    The 325N is very solid and includes several thread size inserts, as well as the 319 75mm adapter ring.*

                                    I have the Libec H38 head, and needed a cheaper way to swap the cam (XL-2) between the tripod and an elevated rail dolly, without having to buy a second head. The 325N was exactly what I was after.

                                    *After ordering it, I noticed one of the reviews saying that the 100-75mm adapter ring (Manfrotto part #319) was not included. I called B&H who confirmed that, so I began the search for one. EVERYONE was out, and all dealers were backordered. Boooo! Lucky me, I found ONE on "auction", in xlnt condition. I arrived today, along with the 325N, which... ding.... had one in the box. Not sure if it was an anomaly, but I'm happy mine came with it.

                                    The 325N is a great piece of engineering and works perfectly.

                                    I turn my Manfrotto 475B photo tripod into a video tripod. I don't have to spent a lot of money to buy a video tripod. Until I realy need a pro video tripod, this adapter will do me a great job.
