Review of the Giottos MH 1302 Series II tripod ball head

Manufacturer: Giottos
Model: MH 1302 Series II
Price: £70
Weight: 400g

Max load: 8000g

The smart matt black Giottos MH 1302 652 Series II features three separate locking levers. The main one unlocks the main ball, while a second adjusts the friction, so you can determine the fluidity of the movement.

A third lock enables left and right pan movement only. There’s a quick-release plate, and a spirit level.

The head feels smooth and refined and locks solidly once the friction lock is also tightened. Larger versions are also available.
