    New review here :- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FlTSSbRmDmQ&feature=youtu.be
  • I will bow to Andy's greater experience but I think the 405 would be stiffer and would therefore cope better with wind. On a normal or wide lens I think either should be fine.
  • I think as long as you are indoors and well within the load limit I would guess that you would be OK. That said the 405 is much more substantial and as long as you get a 'good copy' it is probably ...
  • My pleasure, please do.
  • How heavy is the heaviest lens / camera combination you intend to use ? What is the longest focal length you wish to use (35mm equiv.) ?
  • Another adaptor option is the Fittest FC-RC4.
  • I find the Benro smooth and, while much more comfortable to use than the 410 but not quite as comfortable as the 405. I like the Benro very much and look forward to using it. I really like the fact ...
  • Hi guys, I took three videos which I am hoping will be of some use :- (Please excuse the mess). I hope these help. The lens is a 300mm on a full frame camera (Canon 5Ds). In terms of durability I ...
  • H Dennis, I will try to provide some answers tomorrow as I need to formulate answers based on little shooting experience with the head. Is there anything in particular I can do to help in terms of ...
  • Hi. I have one but have only used it once. I also have the 405 and I am confident that the 405 is more rigid it is much heavier. I think indoors and well within it's load limit it will be good. I ...
  • Interesting, I will take a look. Thanks guys.
  • I have an RRS l-bracket for my 5Ds and bought a cheap clamp to fit the l-plate. I connected a BR attachment to the clamp and threadlocked it in place. I use a pair of cheap Optech fasteners for ...

  • No Henri sorry, damn autocorrect :) http://www.benroeu.com/products/benro-gd3wh.aspx
  • Henri just released a geared head.
  • Thanks. I own one of those but I still want to be able to use my l-plate with the head. I have not converted it with a skeleton arca-swiss plate. I am still very pleased with the head.
  • Hi. I have owned 10+ of this type of level and in my experience they are not accurate except when you get a 'good copy'. Have you considered a small, accurate spirit level that you can put on the ...
  • Sorry, I was a bit over sensitive there :) I mainly do museum photography but some outdoor telephoto, all ideally with geared heads. No macro. Here's a picture of my four geared heads together. I ...
  • In my opinion owning one I would say that it is reductive to say it is a 'clone' of a 410. The knobs are much more comfortable and turn more easily. It is also much lighter and is made of magnesium ...
  • Maybe the new Benro geared head might be worth a look. I did mention it earlier in this thread but it was either ignored or overlooked. Might be better engineered than the 410 (arguably) and is ...
