    Manfrotto 128LP reviews

    128LP Micro Fluid Head is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 54.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Micro I have micro and mini Manfrotto ballheads for my DSLR (Digital SLR) camera and love their compact size, light weight and reliable operation. I wanted a compact and lightweight fluid head for shooting video with my DLSR. The Manfrotto 128LP is a good fluid head but micro is a serious misnomer. The 128LP is a chunky, 1 kg fluid head with a large plate and 4kg load rating. It's overkill to use this for a lightweight DSLR. I wanted a Manfrotto head and was misled by the micro name. Maybe the 128LP will be good for my telephoto lens, or a spotting scope. I'll look for something smaller.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for what it is. I got this head as part of a kit. I use my Canon for video work, so I needed the ability to pan and tilt. What I like about this head is that the pan/tilt motions are fairly customizable. It takes some playing with but it can be easily used. What I'm not keen on is the way it attaches- I'm used to attaching the camera to a foot instead of screwing it directly into the head. That said, there's more range of motion offered as a result of that attachment, allowing for more close up or wide shots from a slightly altered distance. It's also kind of large and bulky for my needs, but I'll probably use it in studio style settings. Not the best for what I need.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Built! Many people seem to be attached to the quick release system found on many of todays tripods, but if you want a sturdy head that screws directly to your equipment snugly, this is it! The head is comfortable to use, easy to maneuver, and produces nice smooth pans and tilts.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice inclusion! Pretty nice item to include with the tripod I bought. Only problem was I bought a tripod bag that is a little small. So, when I put the tripod in the bag, I have to take the handlebar off. It just slows down the process. Also, no bubble-level on this or the tripod. Probably wouldn't have changed what I purchased, it's just always nice to keep in mind what you're NOT getting, yes? Good first pro-ish tripod and fluid head. I'll be adding to my studio as it grows, but this is the first step.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the Manfrotto 7302YB tripod This little tripod head which easily attaches in seconds makes the 7302YB Manfrotto backpack and tripod kit fully useable for all cameras up to ten pounds. Its worth every penny of its price. Micro fluid head is also fine for DSLR's. It just more steady torque for panning duriing video shots. The backpack tripod kit should come with this micro fluid head, and a camera quick release plate all in one kit. You really need all of these little pieces. If you have a little Manfrotto tripod, you need this little head. The tripod still fits in the backpack with the head hanging out the top, but tied down.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Misnamed - Mini is smaller I bought this to use with a small Canon HD camcorder figuring that Micro in the name would suggest it fit these new tiny cameras. It turned out to be huge in comparison to the camera. And while it worked very smoothly for even complex movements, it was too large for the small Gitzo tripod I'm using and very heavy as well. I returned this for the Manfrotto 700RC2 which is much smaller than this head and has a quick release. Unfortunately, it's not as smooth operating as this one.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reasonably priced I was looking for a fluid head that was inexpensively priced to use with a small table top tripod. This fit the bill and provides smooth movement. However I do feel the movement is a bit stiff. For a larger tripod it would be fine but for a micro setup the tripods feet often move while panning. I coupled this with Manfrotto's table top tripod and 10 extension. Hopefully the head will loosen up with use. Also considering it is labeled Micro I was surprised how large it actually is. I do like that the handle is angled and movable. I am happy with the construction and it seems well built.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs better handle attachment I use the product as a freelancer and it works great! the only complaint i have is that clamp that holds the handle does not allow the handle to fold into the tripod for easier transportation. one is required to remove the handle to breakdown the tripod when changing locations. mildly inconvenient, but it won't stop me from using it. also i feel that there should be a detachable securing plate. screwing your camera every time you use the tripod gets a little old.
