    Schonfeld PG01 reviews

    PG01 Pistol Grip Tripod Head is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is perfect for my needs. I purchased the Schonfeld Pistol Grip Tripod Head from Field Optics Research to mount on a new Manfrotto monopod that I am using with a new Nikon P600 with 6o optical x zoom. I wanted the ability to quickly change the positioning of the camera on the monopod to zoom in on a wildlife subject, and the freeze the positioning while adjusting the focus. This pistol grip works like a charm.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice grip This is a solid pistol grip. It has all the features you would expect. Plus this grip has a feature I've not seen on others. There is a separate control to allow the top plate to pan left and right without having to release the ball. Very nice feature that totally sets this apart from other grips I've tired.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What I was looking for. Looked at several grips on line before setteling on this one. Nice tight sturdy build. Use it for sports and nature with my a77II and 70mm to 400mm lens. Also have used it with my a900 and several different lenses, which makes for a pretty heavy set up. Let go of the grip and it locks in place very nicely and stays put.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than anticipated I bought this product to decided if I even liked a trigger head before paying for a higher priced item. I am so happy with it I doubt I will be paying for a more expensive head. It is easy to use, a good size and very steady even with a longer lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why did I wait so long!?!? Pricey, but not really , especially after you use it for the first time, you will wonder why you did not get one sooner. Love mine!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very good tripod head The Schonfeld PG01 Pistol Grip Tripod head was purchased as a direct replacement for the Sunpak pistol grip head on my Sunpak Pro 523PX carbon fiber tripod. The design is identical to the original Sunpak head which allows me to use the original quick release plates I installed on my camera bodies and large telephoto lenses. The unit is solid and works very well, even with a camera/lens combination with a weight in excess of 10 pounds.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does the job, but could be better I wanted an inexpensive pistol grip ballhead, and chose this one. It seems pretty durable, but it's also quite large and heavy, not very good for travel. It's biggest flaw in my view is its quick-release mechanism. The plate is large and non-standard, and the (plastic) locking lever has no secondary locking pin as most others do.
    Date published: 2015-08-17
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from most bang for the buck This Schonfeld pistol grip is easy to install and is very stable with my SLR and 28-300 mm zoom lens. I have had no problems using it with a heavier telephoto such as my 120-400 mm zoom as long as the lens shoe is attached to the pistol grip to provide a reasonable balance for the heavier lens and the camera body.
