    FEISOL VH-40 reviews

    VH-40 Video Head is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from The design of the VH-40 has changed, and not for the better I bought this head for use with the Feisol CT-3442, and I am a fan of Feisol products ! This head seems very well made, of high quality, and, compared to my Manfrotto MVH500AH, very light and compact. However, the B&H site has not updated their site to reflect the new design of the VH-40, as seen now on the Feisol site: http://www.feisol.net/heads/feisol-video-head-vh-40.html Here are the two design changes that, for me, made this product unusable with a DSLR: --�-- The tilt adjustment knob has been replaced with a long lever.� This may be easier for some people to loosen and tighten, but it is so long�that I cannot tighten it when a DSLR is attached to the head. --�-- the B&H site description says "A QRC-50 quick-release clamp is integrated into the design of the head...", but I think this is no longer the case.� The clamp used now may be similar to the QRC-50, but the new clamp has two attachment points rather than a single one in the center.� This may be more secure, but it allows only a single orientation of the clamp on the head - which is bad if you have a DSLR with an L-bracket.� This non-standard clamp also makes it difficult to replace the clamp with one of my choosing. A few things which may or may not have changed, but may be of note to some customers: -- the VH-40 head cannot tilt forward or back enough to point the camera straight down or straight up. I need to return this Feisol video head, but I may search for the old design model instead.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rock Crusher Researching B&H for a Video &/or Pan Head to use with Lens Align, I took a chance on this Head... I could not be happier...It is built like a tank...The first thing I noticed is the weight...I could not imagine a better value at this price point or above...All critical parts are machined aluminum... Action is somewhat stiff due to the grease they use...Seems like Cosmoline, thick & sticky...I disassembled and replaced this with Krytox... As you can see in the photos, I made 3 modifications...Bye, bye warranty 1st is the tension knob, Which I see they have already changed...Mine came with a lever As shown on Fiesol's site on their Cretac tactical Head, It is plastic with a fragile looking inset ring , that meshes with the splines on the shaft...The shoulder on this shaft rests against a ball bearing assembly!...The lever would not clear a mounted camera... 2nd is the mounting holes on the top plate...Rotated 90 degrees... 3rd is the handle...Made from tube this could not be shortened...Great for panning, not so much for car window mount use. So, now I have my calibration, travel, & car window mount needs covered*****

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome head for a spotting scope! I got this video head for a 20-60x82 spotting scope, and for this it works great! Very fluid and smooth panning and tilting (front and back) motions, and locks everything down solid too. I would buy another in a heart beat and am very happy with my purchase from B&H, and the quality of this Feisol product. I will definitely be looking at Feisol when I'm ready to buy a carbon fiber tripod, and another head.... And it will be from B&H too!
