Manfrotto Xpro overview

  • 1Description

Precisely control your camera's orientation with the XPRO Geared 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head from Manfrotto. The XPRO can hold up to 8.8 lb while weighing only 1.7 lb. It is made from a rigid technopolymer called Adapto that maintains strength without adding excess weight.

The head features micrometric knobs, allowing you to place your camera exactly where you need it. For larger adjustments the knobs can be pressed down against a lever, unlocking the movement of each axis individually. The head has a front tilt range of -20° / +90°, a lateral tilt range of -90° / +30°, and a 360° pan range. A 200PL quick-release plate is included for fast and easy camera attachment and detachment.

    Manfrotto Xpro reviews

    XPRO Geared 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 32.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the price It should not have PRO in the name but you can't really buy quality geared head for $. It is cheap Manfrotto product so you cannot expect to much from it.It is made out of hard plastic. Solid but plastic. Camera is positioned offset so adjusting one axis will throw off other one and you will need to correct all axis.It does the job if you need small adjustments for closeup product photography. It may even be good for some macro however you must keep in mind that tilt will change camera to subject distance. I wouldn't recommend it for architecture (unless you are on budget...) Overall quality(usability) to price ratio is good and I give 4stars

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Example of a Manfrotto product I received this tripod head and out of the box it just didn't work. It was very sloppy, the gears were not as tight as I hoped, and there was a manufacturing defect. No matter which way you tightened it, it just got more and more loose to the point where it wouldn't even support it's own weight. I'm sure there are excellent versions of this head available, but mine slipped through their QA department. It should have never been sold. I am a professional photographer and can assure you that this was not operator error. I love Manfrotto products, but this was a fail all the way around. I've returned it and am still waiting on my refund.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from I really wanted to like this head but had to return it I specialize in photographing architecture. The ability to level my camera with fine tuned controls attracted me to this product. We do a lot of multiple frame exposures and it is imperative the the camera is rock solid for each exposure. This head definitely worked well by turning the knobs, but the feel of the mounted camera felt spongy and flexed somewhat. It is made primarily of some type of plastic and felt very consumer grade. Also, I had to order a Manfrotto riser block to add height to the head as the handles hit my Gitzo tripod plate as I tilted up or down.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job well It makes taking real estate photos a breeze, every photo turns out perfectly aligned. The bubble levels are very accurate, not 100%, but close. One of them even helps align vertical shots. Using the bubble levels is faster than aligning the camera visually, especially on uneven ground and odd tripod placements. I haven't found anything negative about it, the fine adjustement knobs initially seemed very stiff but seem normal after some use. Also, coarse adjustments require extra attention to land between notches in order to prevent jumps to the nearest notch. I like how compact it is and well thought out overall.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy it now!!! I do real estate photography and this head has revolutionized my shoots. I was using the excellent Manfrotto XPRO 3-way, which is great, but for getting perfect verticals, a geared head is clearly the only way to go. This new head is about half the price of the previous best choice. I still wish I had the junior geared head for it's metal construction. It's action is smoother (especially in the coarse adjustment.)This head, however, is much lighter, much less costly, and the coarse adjustment method is more ergonomic. If you want a geared head and don't want to spend $, get this geared head immediately without any further hesitation. You will be glad you did.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's ok I am a professional real estate photographer. I purchased this item because I wanted to use the geared system for ultra accurate lines in my shots. It performs as described however, after only a few shoots...maybe 6-7 the gears began to get a bit loose and sloppy and the plate on top would shift slightly no matter much much I tightened all the parts etc. I think if you are a amateur or hobbiest than this is a good fit but if you're buying it because you plan to use it for commercial daily use it's a bit under built for regular use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It only took three trys I take product photos for friends with @ accounts. They and I demand to have the best photos possible. Part of that is to have a good sturdy tripod and head. So far I have a ball head, and basic pan tilt heads. it may be me, but I always seem to overshoot the position I was looking for. Since I have had the XPRO Geared 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head life is good. No more overshooting the adjustment point. I really love the ease of use, get it close using lever, then zero it in with the fine adjustment knobs. I really have not found anything I don't like about this head. I have seen reviews noting that this is not a very stable head, I have not had that experience. This is a keeper!!!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Execution If I were still doing portraits or weddings I'd have sent this thing back. While the gears work okay trying to move it with the release handles is annoying at best. Usually it doesn't want to move at first and when it does it never stays where you put it when you release the handle. Feels very rough, like trying to move the head over a golf ball with sandpaper. Since I now only shoot for my own enjoyment the wasted time trying to get where I want it isn't as big a deal, though it certainly lowers my opinion of Manfrotto.
