Manfrotto tripod head falls short
When I went shopping for some new camera stabilizing equipment I came across a Manfrotto tripod head. It was the MHXPRO-3WG geared head. What a geared head is supposed to do that other heads are not is allow tiny micro adjustments to your compositions. To move the angle of your lens just a little at a time you can twist the knob like a screw and it would move ever so slightly. If you need to make a large adjustment then you pull the knob and it releases to allow quicker full range spins on the heads axis. In theory this was going to be great for my line of photography. I shoot a lot of product photos and I was going to be able to hone in the composition with a lot more control. After just 4 months of using this Manfrotto tripod head I have come to realize that the quality of the head lacks severely. I reached out to Dideo Michel a representative at Manfrotto and I was told by him that I could send it in for repair. With the head being only 4 months old and already needing “repair” I can not possibly imagine the other failures down the long road of use. Repair or not one of the innate designs of this head is an absolute deal breaker.Unfortunately this head is a $200 dollar piece of junk. Check out short video below to see the 3 reasons I would not recommend this tripod head to anyone.
