            Comments about Giottos MH5501-657C Ballhead with Arca-Style Quick Release Plate:

            Very reliable and strong construction.
            I used for my nikon D800, it has a secure bottom to hold the plate in place, a nob on the side to control tightness, very good product.
            No complains so far, I like it.

              Comments about Giottos MH5501-657C Ballhead with Arca-Style Quick Release Plate:

              I like the ease of movement with this ballhead. The release is quick and easy, and I feel my camera is supported.

              I like how easy it is to manipulate, and the levels in the knobs are a great addition.

              It moves smoothly, and does not prove to be cumbersome in any way.
