Great quality panning base to add to my tilt head and my tripod.

Tripod does not swivel? This is a MUST have. Simply attach on the tripod, attach your head to it....Now you can swivel full 360

Nice panning base with smooth rotation and secure lock-down.

Poor quality

While a few days ago I wrote a positive review on this item, now I regret of my purchase. The base is mounted om my tripod top with my geared head and spotting scope on it. The entire structure stood indoor. As for now, the panning process isn't that smooth as it was upon unpacking the PB-70. Friction is felt and even heard while rotating the base. In addition, the plastic of the locking knob has become unpleasantly sticky. I wouldn't recommend that panning base to anyone. Please, dismiss my previous positive review.

A useful gadget

I own the Manfrotto 410 Junior geared head mounted on the Manfrotto 055 tripod. I'm using them primarily for my spotting scope. Those who are familiar with the otherwise good and precise Manfrotto 410 Junior geared head should know that panning with this head is a real pain. I placed the Feisol PB-70 panning base as a layer between the tripod top and the head bottom and now panning along the horizon is easy and accurate. The base diameter almost perfectly fits the tripod top. I gave to that panning base 4 stars (out of 5) only of fear that the locking knob may become completely unscrewed and lost.

Excellent quality. Works great

This device is solid, and has a pro feel to it. Very smooth operationally and the knob has an excellent grip and tightens very well.

perfect for Seaport

I use this to mount my Seaport to a tripod - sturdy and well made, glad I purchased. Makes it easier to spin the Seaport around for client to see.

Asked by: Anonymous
The thread size on the Feisol PB-70 is 3/8 . Unfortunately, Feisol has not provided information on gear reduction ratios for this item.

Does the panning action have any adjustable drag? Or is it basically, OFF free and loose or ON locked down tight? (with no friction in between)
Asked by: Edwin
I just checked mine and if I only loosen the knob a little there is friction to keep it from rotating freely. I’m using mine with a gimbal head that wobbles when I loosen the panning knob. It was cheaper to buy this panning base and keep the pan on the gimbal head locked than to buy a whole new gimbal head. This panning base is sturdy and stable even mounted between my tripod and gimbal head.

question

It is unclear to me if this panning base (PB-70) is a simple rotator or if it also has some levelling function. I can't see any levelling parts in the picture but the text indicates micro-adjustments . Please clarify.
Asked by: Anonymous
There are no leveling functions on the Feisol PB-70 panning base. The micro-adjustments refers to the measurement markings on the base.

Is there any way to affix an Arca Swiss plate to the bottom of the base?
Asked by: Kelly
The bottom of the FEISOL PB-70 Panning Base features a 3/8th inch connector. The Arca Swiss plate connects to a 1/4 20 connector. One can use a 3/8th to 1/4" bushing to connect the Arca Quick release plate:Oben 3/8"-16 to 1/4"-20 Reducer Bushing: https://bhpho.to/2KrpELL

Please confirm the weight in grams. It says 170 grams here, but 220 on the manufacturer's website?
Asked by: Michael
I weighed it on my kitchen scale and it weighed in at 218 grams. So, I would say that 220 is more accurate than 170.

question

Is this a fluid panning base? Can I use it for smooth video panning?
Asked by: Anonymous
No, this is not a fluid panning base, but can be used for video panning if you rotate the cam steadily.
