    Magnus VPH-10 reviews

    VPH-10 2-Way Pan/Tilt Head is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 38.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does the job...and that's about it. Bought this along with the Ikan SLD-31 slider for an indie and a few other projects coming up. Also to put onto an older photo tripod I've barely used since upgrading to a better one. Pretty smooth. It's not the best one ever created, but you could certainly do a lot worse. And it works for what I need it for...which is really to give those wide shots much more dynamic with my slider. At the end of the day, people don't care what brand your gear is. They only care that the resulting video looks great. And it does.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Remakable This very affordable Pan/Tilt head is far smoother that I had a right (at this price-point) to expect. However, it's NOT for any rig more than featherweight. It's made with a lot of plastic so who knows how long it will last. If you do have a simple, light setup and are looking for something that's easy to lug into the forest but still provide silky smooth axial camera motion, it's an excellent good choice.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great for amateur enthusiast it's pretty solid for video shooting. I am not a professional, so I don't really have a standard, but it is fluid. much better than the tripod heads usually sold attached to tripods...beware that it does fall down (with the weight of the camera Canon 70D attached) when the vertical tilt is loosened, so just make sure that doesn't happen. it hasn't fallen off the tripod when that happens, and the camera stays attached to the quick release, but it could be disastrous...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Work well. This product is not the top of the line. But when you get it, you feel more comfortable than not having one. Use it for some moments until it loosens a bit and adjust it the way you want. It has done a good job for so far and I would buy more. Also, it is very good for traveling.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great Just what I needed for my Sirui monopod. Easy to attach. Easy to pack. It was helpful reading the reviews before I purchased. Most appreciated.
    Date published: 2016-03-29
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from For the price...I would recommend it. If you're are looking for a honest, cheap and with-no-surprises gear, this is the head you're looking for. Obviously it is all plastic made but I was looking for something for my slider without spending too much, even because my camera is very lightweight (Nikon D5500). This was my choice.
    Date published: 2016-10-02
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the price - 2 axis mvmnt. Smooth movement. Good for the price. I thought I was going to be able to use this to replace my tripod head for my DSLR, but it lacks movement on one access. It can rotate, and either tilt up/down or left/right (depending on how you mount the camera) but not both. This means the tripod must be mounted level.
    Date published: 2015-03-30
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again I have a small camcorder which I only use several times a year. This tripod head works just fine for me and my use. The action is smooth, and it fits easily into my kit for this work. And as always the service from B & H is exceptional!
