"I like It....Solid head...This ball head supports the 9 pounds of weight for my largest unit fine but I had to use a 3/8 to 1/4 inch bushing for my tripod and I find the unit is a bit wobbly for my liking....I would recommend this unit with tripods with 3/8 bolts only to avoid the wobble issue."

B&H # SLSH707E MFR # 618-717

The Slik SH-707E is a 2-way pan head that has traditional all-metal construction with simple sturdy one lever operation. When released, the head can move in two directions: it can tilt up and down and pan left or right. Its single rubberized handle controls all movement.

These directions of movement make the head an ideal choice for long telephoto lenses, like 300mm f/2.8, 400mm f/5.6 or 500mm f/4.5, or spotting scopes. Following a subject, such as a bird in flight, is easy with this head. The tension of movement can be adjusted by turning the release lever slightly to match the weight of the camera and lens being used.

"Solid tripod....Sturdy and Reliable...I guarantee you that if you mount the same camera and lens on a much more expensive tripod and on this one, the pictures will be the same....The mini tripod you get is pretty cool if you take videos on a table but is flimsy."

"It holds up nicely....I highly recommend it....When my tripod arrived, I was dubious about how stable it would be because it was so much lighter than the Star D I'd been using for 40 years....I was doing time exposures of The Cyclone up to 30 seconds long and every shot came out crisp and clear thanks to this rock-steady tripod."

The Espod CX 233AGH Aluminum Tripod with Pistol-Grip Head from Vanguard provides a stable and lightweight (2.7 lb) support with an innovative pistol-grip head. The tripod extends to 61" and folds down to 23.2".

The head combines the versatility of a 360° panning ball head with the unique feature of one-handed operation. To change your camera position, you simply turn the lock counter-clockwise to release the lock on the ball, reposition your camera, and turn the lock clockwise to lock the ball in position. This enables extremely fast setups while allowing you to keep one hand on the camera and one hand on the pistol grip.

The tripod legs have 3 sections that can be quickly adjusted by way of flip locks. An anti-shock ring on the center column helps absorb shock, thereby reducing camera shake, while a bull's eye bubble level ensures accuracy when leveling your camera to the horizon.
