    Vidpro MH-430 Reviews

    Motorized Pan & Tilt Gimbal Head is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great bit of kit with a number of restrictions so long as you are recording sound seperatly this pan tilt hed is fine but it is quite noisy. it has a small amount of movement in the drive motor meaning that the start of each move has a little wobble. It would be good if it were possible to run the motors more slowly. however i suspect if you go for one of the 20000 dollar versions you would get that. one thing to concider is that the joystick works as a switch and the speed knob varies both motors together. everything is well constructed and seems strong. unfortunately the pan motor is slightly deeper than the atatchment point so you need some kind of extender to fit it to a quick release plate.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product Works as described. You need to get used to moving the joystick with one finger and the speed with another though, so you can get a smooth transition. I have mine mounted on an elevated tripod 20' in the air and shoot sports with it. It handles my HXR-NX3/1 fine. Be careful with it though as it's still a piece of camera equipment. The gears are small and the motors need to be tightened to each pin well while in use or it'll spin uncontrollably. Also, one of my pin's that hold the motor on loosened and the gears wouldn't stay engaged. I tried tightening the pin and the screw head broke off inside it so I needed to drill a hole all the way through it to get the screw out, then bought a small nut and bolt to go through it. It's ok now, but it was a lot of work. I wish they had replacement parts for this - would've been a lot easier just ordering another pin. I looked everywhere but couldn't find their website.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quickrelease ?? I liked fast delivery. No problem with overall operation of the product. But I understand Quickrelease is included in the product. It was not included in the product shipped to me.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from vidpro Pan & Tilt Gimbal head This P/T is easy to install on a tripod. The only problem I have found with it is that at a high speed pan it tends to have a little jitter when you stop due to the quick stop and the weight of the camera (which is only 6.8 lbs. it is supposed to handle an eleven pound camera) The pan and tilt are very smoth other than the pan stopping jitter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great customer service. I had to replace the DC cable that comes with it. Called up manufacture and they replaced it for free. Cant complain about that.
