My Flexshooter Mini pans "reasonably" smoothly for video; how does the regular pro version compare for video work?
Asked by: Gary
The FlexShooter Pro Ball Head with Arca-Type Locking Knob Receiver will offer a similar level of smoothness for video as the Flexshooter mini. Main issue is that you can't adjust the counter balance and fluid drag like you can with a proper video fluid head. Also when panning they don't pan in a straight line, they pan in a curve. I would recommend this Manfrotto head for smooth pan in video. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1470943-REG

How well does this head work for video as compared to a fluid head?
Asked by: Mark
We strongly recommend Fluid or at least Pan & Tilt heads for videos. If you do not have a pan handle on the tripod head, you will need to grab the camera directly for panning which can cause vibration and tilting the camera on unwanted angles.

I just purchased this. It does not appear to be able to lock the large ball. Is ther ea way to completely lock the ball head? Or do I have a faulty unit?
Asked by: Allyson
All of the other comments are valid. In addition, if you notice that the hex screw inside of the black lever is loose, then it may require (moderate) tightening with a hex key/Allen wrench. But please try the other remedies above first.
