  • 1Description

The MHXPRO-3W 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head from Manfrotto is a compact pan/tilt head with retractable handles that can be extended as needed. Two knobs control the friction for the front-to-back and side-to-side tilt, allowing you to fine tune the movements based on the weight of your gear. Three leveling bubbles ensure your composition is level on all axes. A 200PL quick-release plate with a 1/4"-20 camera mounting screw is included.

    Manfrotto MHXPRO-3W reviews

    MHXPRO-3W 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 111.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Pan/Tilt Head I've needed a pro (or semi-pro) tripod head for some time and this one certainly filled the requirement beautifully. Pretty easy to set up right out of the box, very good sensitivity on all controls and very firm when locked down. Also very smooth and fluid for panning. I'll bet there are alot of more expensive ones like this out there, but if you're looking for a good compromise for the bucks, I have to think this one will work just fine. Shooting a 5d3 with various lenses, up to a 70-200 with no problems at all. Mounted a 400/f4 DO lens and took a few shots and it too was very rigid, but did not try any panning with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior quality!! I am using this Manfrotto head for mainly stills, but have shot some video with it too. This is a very easy to use head, and the hand controls are ergonomic. The build quality and design is amazing, i am sure it will last for years! The only downside I have found is the friction controls are very fine, so you must rotate the knobs many times to find the right amount of friction for your gear. I think this could be a good aspect though for finding just the right balance. Overall I am 100% satisfied and would recommend it to anyone in the market for an affordable 3 way head.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Get what you pay for. Its worth the cost, but it doesnt cost that much. I shoot with a Nikon D700 and D750 with a 24-70mm lens, and it is constantly buckling under the weight of the equipment. Vertical shots are almost impossible as the plate cannot seem to stay tight into the camera no matter how much force I use to screw it in. The whole head feels a little flimsy. I have a 10+ year old 3047 Manfrotto head that weighs over 2 lbs more, but I'm back to using my old one because this one is too whimpy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Precise and Rigid Tripod Head I needed a tripod head to help keep the horizon level while panning and tilting. The built-in levels made it easy to set up. The extendable handles made it easy to precisely adjust the tilt. Panning was smooth. This head was easily able to handle my Canon 7D Mark II with even a Tamron SP 150-600 mm lens. The friction control meant that I could position the camera and take my hands off for at least brief moments without a shift in position. The only complaint I have is the limited upward tilt. I'll continue using a ball head for birds-in-flight.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Head I have this head on a carbon fiber tripod and adds a little weight to the setup.I bought this pan/tilt head to replace my ball head that I wasn't too happy with. Just a word of caution you must align the release plate carefully to the camera or it will not click securely onto the head. Be careful. I almost bounced the 7D off the ground.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great Manfrotto product It's tough to beat any of the Manfrotto products.I grew my photography business using mostly Manfrotto camera supports. I recently tried a ballhead setup from another vendor; although the quality was good, I never felt comfortable using a ballhead in my portrait work. Tough to break old habits. I have used Manfrotto 3 way panheads before(Bogen back then)and I always liked their duability.This new head is very well built and I like the new handle setup they have incorporated with it. You just will not find a better head at this price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Head -- Great Value I use this with my Canon 60D DSLR for both stills and video. It is very solid and does not slip, even with a 300mm tele mounted on the camera. It's panning and tilting action are very smooth -- smoother than a 700RC2 fluid head that it replaced. Though my primary application was for still photography, it will do an excellent job for video as well. It is not very light, but it is solidly machined and feels extremely secure.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic head This is the 3rd head I have owned, and by far the best. I don't think the product literature does it justice. I was a little disappointed that the ball heads were out of my price range, but now I am glad I got this one instead. When you loosen up all the adjustments, this head can act a lot like a ball head, and you tighten down one axis at a time. Each of the axis controls are easy to use, and most importantly, they do not drift after you tighten them down. Also, two of the axes have tension adjustments on them, which is great for fine control. There is also a quick-release plate with an extra security feature, and three built-in levels. There is also a degrees scale for angular measurements along the horizontal axis. This head is really easy to adjust and intuitive to use. It does a great job without demanding your attention. Two of the adjustment handles extend for use and collapse for storage. The extension on each handle is about 1.5 inches, so that makes for easier storage and transport.
