FlexTILT Head 2 Pan/Tilt Camera Head is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from FlexTILT Head 2, a useful alternative Edelkrone makes great gear, cleverly envisioned, thoughtfully designed, and manufactured at the highest quality. The FlexTILT Head 2 is no exception. It's a useful alternative to the conventional variety of photo/video heads, especially if mounted on one of Edelkrone's popular sliders, which can therefore enable one to manually pan and dolly, smooth as silk. In addition, the head is designed such that it can stand alone, sans tripod. I haven't shot anything yet in this configuration, but I appreciate the option that Edelkrone has built into this head. Although one can tighten the joints (not necessary in most cases), when extending the head, one does have to be careful about adding too much weight, e.g., a multi-element 2.8 lens lashed to a larger bodied DSLR, as the head can creep downward. I've found that it's really not that necessary to extend it much anyway; with just a bit of extension, it stays in place with my built-like-a-tank lenses. Other than that caveat, I'm very satisfied with the FlexTILT Head 2, and If I were you, I'd seriously consider adding this alternative head to your camera bag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it says. Won't be using it often but when needed nothing else beats it. You must keep it a bit tight otherwise it will drift, but it does stay put.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good equipment... The FlexTilt Head is a great piece of equipment. Very solidly made. Does the job as presented in the videos available on YouTube or on the company site. A little heavier than expected, but overall, it is a 5 star gear!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid piece of gear! solid product....so far its working just as advertised. It holds my Canon 5D with 24-105 lens without issues. I own the edelkrone motorized slider and this is a great addition to the package. Good company....good product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Edelkrone is seriously high quality. I own several Edelkrone products and have to say after purchasing this Flex Tilt head, What I expected from an Edelkrone product is exactly what I expected. A big thanks to B&H for caring such an awesome product. I would definitely recommend this product especially for video production on sliders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very useful for macro & close-up photos; fairly light I've been using a Manfrotto 410 geared head to precisely position the camera for macros, but it's over 2 lbs/1 kg, so it's a drag taking it out into the field. The Edelkrone FlexTilt weight about 1 lb/.45 kg, and for close-up & macro, it's possible to move the camera up and down as well as forward and backward, which saves a great deal of fiddling around with the height and position of the tripod. It pans and adjusts vertically and forward & back, but it lacks a pitch adjustment. So you may want to take some care to set the tripod level using the bubble level on the Flex/Tilt, although one could easily add a leveling base if that became an issue. There's a small amount of "backlash" when you adjust the position of the camera, so moving precisely requires care, but with a bit of use, you learn how much force to use when you move it. It seems best to move to reposition the camera by pushing on the Flex/Tilt rather than trying to lever the camera into position by pushing on the camera itself. You can adjust the tension using an Allen wrench (included), but the tension out of the box worked well for a FF mirrorless with a 90mm macro lens attached. It's easy to attach an Arca-Swiss mounting plate.
