    Morning Curt, it is all ready on it's way. ordered over the weekend, Sunday night. Looking forward to it's arrival. Nothing big to go on her, RF645 Minolta 800si. But got my eye in for something a little bigger. 5X4 is on the list.

    You can.
    And for less money too (£ 135 = $ 170 at Ffordes, vs $ 210 at B and H)!

    I was looking at the Manfrotto 410 geared head on my local pro dealers website recently , and you get no impression of how big it is, I was in the shop recently, and I was really surprised at It's size, you need to see one "in the flesh" and get an impression of It's scale before ordering it unseen from a picture.

    I ordered one just from spec's and a pic in a folder for 35.
    They call it "small" , yep, it holds a RB67 with ease....

    But: you get a lot for your money, it has been well worth it.

    They call it "Junior", because compared to the other two geared heads they sell, it is the lesser of the bunch.
    Not because it is small.


    But as tripod heads go, the Junior isn't that big really.

    Included a pic from the 410 with a full blown Rolleiflex 2.8F of mine....
    I know, the camera should be turned 180 degrees for shooting, but it is just to show the scale of the 410.

    I'm sure this is a fine head It's just that I feel that it more suitable for M/F and L/F , and that I personally would find it too slow to use for 35 mm

    But the gear head is not that slow.

    You can disengage the gear drive of each axis with one grip, allowing you to move that axis freely. Just like other heads do.
    And that, even faster than with other heads, which need you to loosen a screw first.

    Actualy I am using the 410 for 35 right now and it is fast and acurate, esp. for architectural shots.
