Manfrotto 410 Ju­nior Geared Head

NPhoto - - Test Team -

Geared heads are a great way to cap­ture a panorama, but are also ideal for macro work or any shot re­quir­ing com­plete com­po­si­tional con­trol. The Manfrotto 410 fea­tures three knobs that will wind your Nikon pre­cisely around a 360-de­gree pan, as well as tilt­ing it ver­ti­cally and lat­er­ally. Each knob has a quick re­lease col­lar so you can make snap ad­just­ments.

Sub­stan­tial alu­minium con­struc­tion con­trib­utes to the head’s meaty 1.22kg bulk, though it is well up to han­dling a D4s with a se­ri­ous lens.

Down sides? Well you don’t get any nodal point ad­just­ment, so close-range panora­mas may not stitch to­gether cor­rectly. You’ll also need to pan pre­cisely as this head can’t be con­fig­ured to click into place at pre-set in­ter­vals.

This ex­tremely sturdy head will sup­port a top-end D-SLR and still re­main ca­pa­ble of pre­cise pan­ning
