Some customer reviews of Manfrotto 808RC4 Standard 3-Way Head

Most helpful reviews

Robert, Tamworth NSW Australia

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Sturdy and strong. The CF legs give it lighter weight than expected, yet it is very stable. The three controls on the head are easy to use and I managed them fine from day 1. A little longer then I expected but them I opened it up and found that at last I had a tripod that I could use fully expended with extending the post. It really suited my 178cm height. There are still facilities that I haven't explored and used yet so there is much more for me to enjoy. Fully recommend it.
Bad points:
Maybe the rubber feeet could have had hard screw-out metal feet as well for use on varied surfaces. Can't think of any other.

Manufacturer's Description

The 808RC4 streamlines our range of 3-way heads by incorporating new elements while maintaining all the features you loved. There are two balance springs in the vertical tilt (forward/backward) and horizontal tilt (left/right) movements. These springs enable you to more comfortably handle heavier camera loads (such as very long lenses) with minimal effort. Both springs can be turned off in case normal head operation is required. The head is comprised of aluminium and designed in a manner to support up to 8kg yet lightweight and small enough to pack in any camera kit. The standard quick release system is used to accommodate larger camera platforms which incorporates dual axis bubble levels to achieve level shots.
