Nice Tilt Head for Monopod

By Katie

I'm using this tilt head with my Manfrotto monopod. It's very sturdy and doesn't move when locked down. I used it quite a bit on a trip to Yellowstone recently with my Sigma 150-500 lens and it worked perfectly. Really well priced- very pleased with it!

Great for the price

I’m using a DSLR with a 70-200 2.8 L IS lens. I had to add an extra washer to the knob that tightens the tilt mechanism. Without the extra washer modification the tilt mechanism would tilt on its own even though it was tighten as far as it can. My setup is well within the weight limits as states. After adding the extra washer I don’t have any more issues.

Great Product!

I bought this tilt head along with my monopod and it's quick and easy to use. The Allen wrench included makes sure it's tight and snug. The quick detach lever is quick and easy to use. Very satisfied customer. I love B&H photo for all my photography needs. Shipping is fast and items are well packaged to prevent damage.

this head is just the right size for the monopod and my Nikon Coolpix p1000 camera. the camera is a bit heavy so I needed help with the monopod and this Oben head is a good fit with my set up.

Will this head work on a Manfrotto 290 Monopod? How good is this head for panning vertical and horizontally when you are using a 400mm lens?
Asked by: Dennis
The Oben VH-R2 Tilt Head for Monopods is compatible with the Manfrotto 290 Monopod. This head is good for tilting the camera as long as the camera and lens does not weight more than 11 lbs. The head doe not allow for horizontal panning, but you could turn the Monopod.
