Arrived in reasonable time; good price for the quality; very pleased to have a bargain item, except for one small complaint. The bearings were a bit stiff and were eased with a drop of machine oil, but then found quite some play in these bearings when fully released. But still a bargain at the price paid.

Very good quality product not only for its price. Maybe it does not operate as smooth as other marks do and included QR plate should be longer, but I'm completely satisfied. I suggest this head to all wildlife/sport photographers with limited budget.

I bought this because I am starting to do more outdoor photography and wanted something that would hold my long lens better than a standard tripod ball head. So far, this has been a great purchase. Smooth motion, and great balance. I can't wait to get out in the field and give it a good working.

Although I have not given much use yet, I tried it and it's a good head.Robust and reliable, allowing your hands off the camera without lock, only leveling the weight of camera and lens. For tele lens is a perfect choice, with an unbeatable price

I am delighted with this gimbal. It is just right for my 100-400mm zoom lens. I can be shooting a bird on the water one moment and track its take off and flight the next. It is strong and lightweight and i have to cart my gear long distance.

overall really great for the price, just these things to mention: - grease is bad, moving parts demands some force- the quick release plate is way to short for long lenses- build quality of qr-adapter is a bit low

Q: I have bought a few things earlier from you on e-bay and very satisfied with the service and so coming back to buy from you again!!

I am interested in BK 45 tripod head. I want to use it for my 300mm f/2.8 lens and therefore I feel I would need a longer plate (100mm should be good I think). Please let me know if that is available with you. I could not locate it in the list.

My location is Bangalore, India, Post code 560004. Please let me know what would be the shipping cost if I buy the BK45 head, 100mm plate and ballhead (SKU: PK004, listed for $18.69). As you have mentioned in your site, it would be great if you can mark it as gift to save customs!

Thanks!
