    Well constructed compact head, perfect size for monopods. Swivel yoke design allows 180 degree rotation in a single plane. Twin lever locking device allows quick release of mounting plate while preventing accidental release. Threaded insert adapts to either 1/4-20 or 3/8-16 mounting stud on monopod/tripod. Rubberized pad on mounting plate helps prevent twisting on camera.

    This was the suggested product for my Benro monopod. It is a solid product, but because the top of the Benro is large the head would not swivel into the portrait (vertical) position. The Benro is great, the Oben is solid but the two are dificult to use together.

                  Pro: It tilts and I like the quick release locking mechinism.

                  Con: I wish it would swivel left and right also. The only way to keep from having to twist the monopod is to leave the VH-R2 Head unscrewed one or two threads. It would be nice to have a swivel built into the head for smoother left and righ movememt.

                    When installed on my Manfrotto 680B Monopod, the Oben Tilt Head does a very nice job of providing solid support for over 6 pounds of camera/lens load. This head is both tough and reasonably priced. I'm convinced that I got more value than I payed for.

                        I needed to upgrade my lightweight Canon 100 monopod to accommodate a heavier lens I recently purchased. I settled on this tilt head with the Oben ACM-2400 monopod. The quick release plate on this tilt head seems a little on the small side but is sturdy, well made, and fits the tripod mounting foot of my Canon 100-400 lens just fine. I appreciate the lever incorporated into the bolt that attaches to the quick release plate, which makes tightening the plate to the camera/lens foot much easier than fumbling with a coin to tighten a typical screw.

                        The quick release plate operates very smoothly, both when snapping to the head and releasing the camera from the head. I haven't experienced any creep during or after tightening the adjustment knob with my 6-lb camera and lens combination.

                          I use this with my monopod and 70-400mm lens for wildlife photography. The tilt head when tightened does not slip and when loosened just a bit allows for easy, fluid movement and still holds its position well. The only minor issue I have is the bolt that attaches the quick release head to the camera/lens loosens on its own over time.

                            I use this head to attach a Minox spotting scope to an Oben monopod, but it will fit other makes as well.

                            Once you get the hang of it, you can attach/remove the scope to/from the head very quickly.

                            It is very solid and well designed.

                              This little tilt head is a great addition for monopod use. It provides a stable mount for even heavy rigs. I have had great success with this model and highly recommend it. It is simple in design and very easy to use, most of all it does what it is supposed too. Best way to describe it, well it works and does everything it claims too. Great head, it will be on my monopod always.

                              It is a nice head. Maybe it is just me but I have a hard time once I attach my camera putting it back on the monopod.
