Manfrotto Xpro overview

  • 1Description

This XPRO 3-Way, Geared Pan-and-Tilt Head from Manfrotto has a load capacity of 8.8 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 20° backwards, as well as 90° sideways for portrait orientation. Each of these three movements function independently of each other and have individual, spring-clamp controls. Squeezing each clamp's two handles allows the corresponding movement to be rapidly adjusted, and once the handles are released, the adjustment is locked into place. One handle on each clamp is also an integrated twist knob that allows incremental, geared adjustments, which help to ensure that any device mounted to this XPRO 3-Way, Geared Pan-and-Tilt Head is precisely positioned relative to the subject.

To further promote fast and repeatable device positioning, this XPRO 3-Way, Geared Pan-and-Tilt Head also includes dedicated angle scales for each movement that are designed for easy visibility.

    Manfrotto Xpro reviews

    XPRO 3-Way, Geared Pan-and-Tilt Head with 200PL-14 Quick Release Plate is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 38.
    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!!!
    Date published: 2015-05-17
    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.
