    Vanguard PH-30 reviews

    PH-30 Panhead is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Panhead for the pros I'm super excited about my purchase of my Vanguard Panhead. I use if for my camera slider and occasionally for a replaced tripod head. I was surprised by its sturdiness and range of motion. The solid metal feel gives you a feeling of security. When I mount my Canon 60D with a light lens the panning is still very smooth. My only issue with it is I wish the handle was longer

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vanguard PH-30 Panhead Purchased this to replace a pistol grip ball head for my Sunpak 6000. Works great, like they were built for each other!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Panhead by Vanguard I was surprised on how small the head was,but still strong enough to hold a D600 with a 70-200. The panning is smooth and easy. The only problem I found was that it has a thread. While the tripod that I bought had a 3/8, good thing I managed to modify the tripod. Other then that over all a nice panhead with fluid head.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Little Panhead Built tough, locks tight, and pans smooth ... what else can you ask for, for the money.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too big / too small Ended up being too big to shoot video with a cell phone and too small for DSLR. Exchanged for Joby stand for the cell phone & mounted that to an old inexpensive tripod with panning handle.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice product! Very nice product. Feels very well made and very easy to use. My only complaint would be that the locking mechanism isn't too firm where it feels like if I nudged it accidentally it might unlock and detach. Haven't had any problems yet but I will be extra careful to keep everything secured when in use.
