Today I would like to tell you a little about my new tripod head that I got just a few weeks ago, and with which I’m very satisfied with. I usually don’t do reviews of any kind here simply because I don’t have the feeling that I’m the right person to do something like this.
Last tool arrived just in time. http://twitpic.com/1q0hi

I’t a Manfrotto Junior Geared Head 410. But don’t let the term Junior mislead you, there’s nothing really “junior” about it. I kind of knew what kind of head this is, but I had never seen a clear example of it. Since I consider this head so useful I thought a tiny little demo could be nice, in case someone would like to have a little info on this one.
It’s a three way head, with adjustments screws which make absolute precise adjustments possible. With my other, and now retired Tripodhead, I always had some issues to get the composition right as it always moved back a little after adjusting. This one is different. I adjust it the rough position I want it to have using the control ring, and then can do some fine tuning using the control knobs. It’s just pure fun and enables me to simply focus on the composition of the image. One thing less to worry about in the field.
Since it’s a little weird talking about adjusting things, I though you might have as well a look at it. Hopefully you enjoy my little video straight out of my kitchen again.
Now I just wish spring would show up so that I can use it a little more than recently.
I hope you enjoyed it and thanks for viewing.
