Benro GD3WH overview

  • 1Description

Accurately position your camera with the 4.3" tall GD3WH 3-Way Geared Head from Benro, which has three independent geared movements that move with precision by turning the knob in slow increments. To quickly position a camera without the gears, simply pull the knob outwards to move the camera into the desired angle.

The 1.9 lb Arca-type compatible head is constructed from a durable magnesium alloy, and its carbon steel and bronze gears provide smooth operation. With the head's load capacity of 13.2 lb, it can hold a mirrorless to medium format camera with ease, and the three bubble levels ensure accurate leveling of the camera in any axis.

    Benro GD3WH reviews

    GD3WH 3-Way Geared Head is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Real Estate Photography I'm glad I finally purchased this Geared Head, takes a little time to get familiar with it at first then I find it's very easy to level off you lines. I shoot with the FeelWorld F570 5.7" IPS 4K HDMI On-Camera Monitor B&H # FEFWF570 MFR # FWF570 on top of my camera and using the grid lines I find that just matching the vertical lines with you walls, windows or other straight line objects in you shot I find myself no even looking at the built in level on my camera. The Arca mount, well it's a little different you have to pull once you've unscrewed the knob to release the mounting plate. Wish it came with a lever locking clamp.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Super Geared Head For over a decade, I'd been using a Manfrotto 410 geared head. Over those years the 410's operation was getting harder, with the fine controls slowly growing tighter and "stickier." Well, realizing that nothing lasts forever, when Benro announced they were introducing a lightweight geared head, I was quite excited to get my hands on one. I've had it now for about a month and I have to say that it performs wonderfully, with my D810, RSS L-bracket, with 105mm and 150mm Macro lenses. Very positive control provides fine-tuning framing with ease. Highly recommend this geared head!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have I shoot real estate and had been looking into getting a geared head for some time now. I knew right away I couldn't justify buying an Arca-cube, but I still wanted Arca plate functionality for my L bracket. When this head was announced I eagerly awaited a preorder. It arrived just over a week now and Ive been using it constantly. The head is super sturdy, easy to use, and makes fine tuned adjustments for getting shots perfectly level vertically and horizontally. The time it will save from editing photos in lightroom is by far worth the investment

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing. This head is very practical for my food photogaphy. I can adjust with precision in any direction.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cheaper alternative for a geared head.... Been using Manfroto gear for years. Unfortunately, their stuff is utter garbage now. So I was in search of new tripod legs and an alternative to Manfroto for a geared head (other than the awesome-but-expensive ArcaSwiss). Saw this one was coming out so figured I'd give it a go. We do real estate photography and I do (personally) between 3-6 houses each day. Been using this for a couple of weeks now. So far, I'm impressed with it (for the price). Works well enough. Is lighter than the Manfroto Junior Geared Head. I don't know that it's quite as precise (not a huge issue for me). I'm not sure if I could drive nails with it like I'm pretty sure you can with the Junior Geared Head but the last 2 Manfrotos I've gotten have had so much play in them they were almost unusable. If you're looking for a good, less expensive alternative, this one seems to fit the bill. Could be built a little sturdier but I've not had any issues with it so far. Time will tell...

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flawed This geared head is light weight and solid. Too bad the bubble levels are completely worthless.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this thing! Very stable and solid. Fantastic for Macro or Landscape. Not fast to use, but rock solid with a Sigma 180 Macro lense.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Benro is good I love the functionality for the price. I do real estate photography and it's a must have if you can't afford the arca.
