Manfrotto MHXPRO-3W overview

  • 1Description

This XPRO 3-Way, Pan-and-Tilt Head from Manfrotto has a load capacity of 17.6 lb and can be attached to tripods or other support systems that feature a 3/8"-16 mount. It includes an integrated RC2 quick release cam lock and a 200PL-14 Quick Release Plate. RC2 compatible quick release plates such as the 200PL-14 can be removed from the head by pulling the cam lock's spring-loaded lever, which also allows the plate to be quickly reattached. The cam lock also features a safety catch to prevent the 200PL-14, or another compatible quick release plate from accidentally disconnecting.

Cameras, sport optics, or camcorders that are compatible with a 1/4"-20 mount can be connected to the quick release plate before securing it to the pan-and-tilt head. The head can be rotated 360°, tilted 90° forwards or 30° backwards, as well as 90° sideways for portrait orientation. Each of these three movements function independently of each other, have dedicated control handles, and can be locked into place. In addition to integrating the ability to individually lock the movements by twisting each corresponding handle's rubberized grip, the telescoping control handles for both tilt functions can also be retracted while the head is not in use for more convenient storage or transport.

To promote fast and repeatable device positioning, this XPRO 3-Way, Pan-and-Tilt Head also includes a dedicated angle scale for rotational movements that is designed for easy visibility, as well as dedicated control knobs set under the telescoping control handles that can each be rotated to apply tension control to either the backwards and forwards, or sideways tilt movements at any time.

    Manfrotto MHXPRO-3W reviews

    XPRO 3-Way, Pan-and-Tilt Head with 200PL-14 Quick Release Plate is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 115.
    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 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 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 2 out of 5 by from Unfortunate had to return 2 units. I received this item and the landscape to portrait unit was gritty and sticking.� I returned and had another one of the same item sent and it too had the same problem.� After 2 units directly out of the box having the same problem I chose not to go with this unit for fear of trust in the quality control on this product.� Perhaps I was unlucky to get 2 back to back units failing with the same problem.� Quite a shame because other than the gritty sticky issue this head was exactly what I was looking for.� B&H customer service were excellent thru the return processes.

    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 Great tripod head! Bought this to replace the ball head on my Giotto. The ball head just did not work well with my Nikon D750 with heavy lens. This new pan/tilt head is just right. It's very well built, actually better than I had expected. The friction knobs allow you to precisely dial in the amount of resistance you desire and the handles work well in controlling the pan/tilt of the camera. I seem to be able to move the camera into position and lock it down without any post sag that I experienced with the ball head. The head is a bit heavy but it adds stability to the tripod/camera system that feels right. Because of its weight I may decide not to take it on travel if I plan to travel light, but I can see liking this head more and more to the point that I may consider it an essential travel item despite its added weight. All in all I'm very satisfied with this purchase. B&H was, of course, superior in their ordering/delivery process.

    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.
