I've been using PMG for 4 years now and I really like to use their gear and this new head that hasn't been out for long is more you conventional style head but it still works mechanically without grease so means it won't lock up on you in extreme weather conditions, I put it in my freezer over night at -22 degrees celsius and it still functioned as normally when taken straight out.
Works just fine with a big camera setup on it as well, once you lock everything down it is very stable! If you need something really strong I recommend you look at the BH1 ball head as that is a tank
Such a perfect design. Thank you for enhancing my photography hobby.
The Ball rolling so smooth. The knob is also so smooth to the touch. Nothing to complain about. 10/10 👌
The size and sturdiness of this ball head is a joy to work with. No matter the angle, the camera stays where I put it. The only reason for the four stars instead of five is the fact that the ball head is very stiff when I'm out in extreme cold. I do a fair amount of winter hiking in the Rocky Mountains. On those cold winter days, with all of the knobs loosened, I have to adjust my camera by grabbing the lens for leverage because of the stiffness of the ball. Maybe over time it will loosen up a bit. Otherwise, I really like this ball head.
The fluid movement and the quick release is outstanding I am liking this with the Promedia 34l tripod.
This will undoubtedly be my go-to ball head. The pan and ball movements are incredibly smooth. Absolutely zero ball head droop, even with a heavy body/lens combination. The large main and pan lock knobs are a delight to use and will be easy to operate with gloves on. I much prefer the wide grooves on these vs. the knurled or fine grooves on other heads I've used. The ability to reposition the panning knob is a great feature. This is yet another well designed and executed bit of gear from PMG!
