Manfrotto 405 Pro overview

  • 1Description

This B&H Kit includes the Manfrotto 405 Pro Digital Geared Head and a 410PL Quick Release Plate. Designed especially for DSLR and medium format camera shooters who need both speed & precision, the 405 Pro Digital Geared Head is a capable three-way head which features bubble levels that may be easily seen in two axes - no matter the orientation of the camera. Meaty rubberized knobs can either completely disengage the gear mechanism for a quick rough estimate of position or offer the finest exacting placement for even a macro shot. Cranks allow 360° pans and +90° to -30° of horizontal or lateral tilt.

An additional Manfrotto 410PL quick release plate is included in this kit as a spare or for rapid changing between two camera bodies.

Manfrotto 405 Pro reviews

405 Pro Digital Geared Head with 410PL Quick Release Plate Kit is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving my Manfrotto 405 Geared Head I've been shooting travel/landscape professionally for about 10 years and have always used Ball-Heads. Wanting to gain more control over the minor adjustments in my compositions I felt the need to try a geared head. Wow - what took me so long!!! I love it. It's large (especially compared to ball-heads), but it's easier to work the knobs this way. I was concerned about how quickly I could set up a shot. With the ball-head, getting close to the final composition is easy - it's the fine-tuning that's harder. With the 405 all major changes can be made quickly by turning the big knobs (one for each axis), and then fine-tuning after that. It takes a few seconds longer to get to the initial composition, but so effortless to make all the small changes that are required after that. Very solid construction, easy to use - I wish I'd made this change years ago...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Manfrotto 405 Pro Digital Geared Tripod head Well built, sturdy, and heavy duty. First, realize that this head uses the Manfrotto RC4 Quick-Release system. �This is different--and not compatible with--the Manfrotto RC2 QR system. Having said that, I don't think it will be a problem with a little forethought about your equipment and how you use it. The head is very smooth and stable. �It is easy to make small adjustments when framing your subject. �For example, when taking a series of shots of the moon (or the sun) you'll have to recompose your shot every few minutes. �this head makes it simple. �a few turns of the appropriate axis adjustment and the subject is back in the center of the frame--or wherever you want it. The head is geared in all three axis. �There is a large rubberized ring inboard of each adjusting knob to allow gross movement about that axis. �The knob is easy to grasp even when wearing gloves. �It rotates 90 degrees and you'll need to rotate it at least 45 degrees to release the gearing system. �A smaller knob outboard of the large knob is used for fine adjustments--this is the geared part of the adjustment--and the adjustments are as fine as you want. �Each axis has a degree readout if you want to return to a previous setting. �I can't imagine ever using it. There are three bubble levels with which to level the camera in each axis. �I have always found bubble levels to be too "fiddly" so I just level in the viewfinder. � All in all an excellent tripod head if you are looking for a way to make small accurate adjustments when composing your shot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the only way to go! I own 2 of these, one for each of my tripods. These are vastly superior to even the most expensive ball heads. I've run into wildlife scenes where there are already other photographers setting up, and I can walk up, do a rough composition, then just tweak the knobs for fine adjustments, and be walking away while others are still trying to compose their image.
