iFootage Komodo K5 Reviews

It's okay

By Mark

For the size, price and performance, it does an okay job. It is really basic with no frills. Smoothness will depend on the user so don't think it's going to smoothen out your inconsistent pan movements. It's compact and great for run and gunning. You pay for what you get. This is a stepping stone fluid head to get me to eventually investing in a more professional head.

Works fine for my minimal requirements

I'm not a video person and my needs are minimal - I don't tilt or pan, but instead lock down my shots. What I did want is minimal size and weight. The pans & tilts are good enough for my purposes and the K5 works well w/ the Gazelle TC7 tripod.

Idk why people write bad reveiws about this . This is very well made and has excellent movement. I use this for a spotting scope and the preformance is outstanding and it isnt to big like my other option was in this price range . If your looking for a really nice , well built video head at this price point this is what you want . This is a quality product .

Just get it. Trust me!

I am so impressed with the build quality of this head! Coming from the manfrotto 2 way tripod and a 502ah, I feel like this is a great head right in the middle. This is solid and the base plate is very well made. It doesn't have adjustable drag but that's ok! I

Pleasantly Surprised

Surprisingly well built. Came wonderfully packaged. Preforms really well for a budget friendly head. At less than 2 Lbs it makes for a very portable setup. Safety lock is a nice feature. Would definitively recommend. Use with a Sony FDR-AX700.

Will this plate be interchangeable with a Peak Design Capture clip?
Asked by: Rich
Peak Design Capture Clips are Arca Compatible. This head does not accept Arca Plates as is. However you could always mount a product like the Sunwayfoto Arca Clamp to the top of this head. From there it would be compatible with Arca plates like the Peak Design Capture Clip. https://bhpho.to/2b47Qpc

Arca Swiss compatible?

Arca Swiss compatible?
Asked by: Anonymous
Are you asking about the use of a different clamp (quick release) than the sliding mounting plate supplied? You could screw the quarter twenty of an Acra Swiss plate into the Komodo's sliding release plate, but you can not swap it out with another. Ask Adroama that question since they sell Arca Swiss mounts.
