Great grip

By Mark

Comments about Matthews Hollywood Head - Black:

I needed tripod top grips for holding reflectors. The Hollywood head fastens firmly to the tripod and then holds the reflector at any angle. I'm glad I bought these as the cheaper, lighter versions just didn't hold things as I desired.

Industry standard.

By Hogo

Comments about Matthews Hollywood Head - Black:

Tough, functional, and even looks good. Bought eight of them to build my own vehicle mounting rig. The pic makes them look almost gray, but they are pure black. No glare comin off these! Buy these over lesser manufacturers.

      I didn't have the budget for a C-Stand but have lots of light stands and this head was a great solution-for now.

          I don't have the budget for C-stands but have more light stands than I need so this Hollywood Head is a great solution for now. I like it so much I'm getting another. I wanted a silver but the black is ok too. I like a lighter color to see not better in subdued light is all.

            Having tried to go the cheaper route with as many film making tools as possible, I'm finding that buying the industry standard tool in first place to be the best idea. AND I'm not going to cheap out on something that is going to hold $[$]light. That goes for stands as well. Buy the right product the first time.

              No complaints on this Hollywood Head. It is black. It is solid steel. The knobs twist extremely smoothly. Two different size holes for various equipment. It does not spin or rotate unless you want it to.
