          Comments about Benro HD3 3-Way Panhead:

          I wanted a heavy duty tripod system for long exposures and Panorama work. I ended up with this head and a Benro A3580F tripod. I couldn't be happier with this combo. It is a little stiff rotating the head with the two short handles, but it is acceptable and it is beginning to loosen up. Better tight than too loose. The head does not slip when tightened. Great for my heavy duty DIY wood panorama head.

            Comments about Benro HD3 3-Way Panhead:

            Love this head. It's exactly what I wanted for my 400mm lens. Smooth motion and great quality. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars... I wish it would allow for the handles to swivel down for storage in the case with the tripod legs... I have to remove one of the handles to store it. Otherwise great tripod head.

              Comments about Benro HD3 3-Way Panhead:

              Having had previously frustrating experiences with both a panhead and a ballhead, I am very satisfied with the Benro 3-way panhead. First of all, I was very pleased with the ease with which my camera or lens ring attaches to the panhead. I like that the handles do not stick out too far, making it easy to quickly deposit the tripod onto the back seat of my car; and there are only 2 handles and a round knob to deal with, making it easy to adjust without taking my eyes off my subject. The Benro firmly holds my 100-400L and my 70-200L lenses.
