        Comments about FEISOL PB-70 Panning Base:

        I bought this panning base for use with a Foba Mini-Superball. I though the relatively low price would mean compromised performance, but what a surprise. It's the equivalent of high-cost equipment: ultra smooth with secure locking - the perfect complement to my Foba ball head. I highly recommend it.

          Comments about FEISOL PB-70 Panning Base:

          I have one of Manfrotto's best monopods, but I always thought it would be nice to allow the head to pan, if I choose, instead of leaving that function to the ball joint near the bottom of the 'pod. Presto! By adding this well-machined little beauty just beneath the video head, I now have that option. It's built very solidly, with some comforting weight behind it, and because the monopod is no lightweight, this little bit of added heft is fine with me. Pans are smooth and steady after adjusting the tightening knob . Very impressed with the unit in particular, and Feisol in general. The price is attractive as well!

            Comments about FEISOL PB-70 Panning Base:

            The base has a nice and smooth movement and lick marks at all 360 degrees. The locking know is tight and keeps the base from spinning with my DLSR attached to the tripod and slung over my shoulder.

              Works great. Has smooth movement and 360 tick marks on the base. The tightening know works well and keeps the base from rotating when the camera is attached and slung over my shoulder still on the tripod.

                              Used as a base for my tripod head this adds pan abilities. The bearing is very smooth and solid and the lock is firm. This isn't super light but the solid feel is more comforting. It could be used with a heavy camera.

                                I needed a dedicated pan mount for my new Salamander jib because my pan and tilt head was not rated for the weight. The PB-70 works like a charm absolutely no complaints.

                                Works well, knob could have been a little smaller.

                                  I bought this in order to get degree markings to make taking large panoramas easier and it absolutely does the job. It might not have the detent rings but it does the job for a tenth of the price of other panorama setups. The 3/8th screw allows you to attach your own ballhead on top of it which makes adapting it to your current tripod setup very easy.

                                            I purchased the PB-70 to use on my Manfrotto 055 XPRO tripod with a Manfrotto 561BHDV video head that came with my monopod. I now have the ability to swap and change my video head from monopod to tripod for less .It has exceptional build quality and is incredibly smooth with a large easy to use locking knob.

                                              I used this panning head for my landscape and low-angle photograph waterfowl.

                                              Build quality is great. Panning is very smooth and precised.

                                                I have one of the most complicated collection of heads for use with my Manfrotto tripod(s). A leveling base, a panning head, and a Custom Bracket swiveling system. All of those things and I couldn't get this monstrosity of unit to simply PAN! Of course, the panning systems available to me were all 'panoramic' specialty heads with a price tag right in line with 'specialty' products.

                                                After some aggressive searching I found this great little number. I had very little expectations based on the price, but guess what?! It does what it says! Trust me, I didn't want to like this product - I'm a label lover and the thought that my other 'label' manufacturers couldn't come up with something this practical is still beyond me! Nice work FEISOL.
