Product Description

The Opteka TacShot is a compact and convenient trigger-style tactical ballhead, designed for lightweight video or still photography. The very act of taking your hand away from the grip locks the head into position, which eliminates the extra step of having to tighten a knob or lever before being ready to shoot. You have immediate access to half of a sphere in which to position your camera. The TacShot's body is crafted from high impact polycarbonate with the ball head and internal assemblies made from high quality aluminum. A bull's eye style single bubble level helps quickly achieve a perfectly level shot with just a glance at your hand. The included quick release plates allow you to remove your camera at a moment's notice.The Opteka TacShot can be used with all makes and models of tripods that have either a 1/4"-20 or a 3/8"-16 threaded center column post.The Opteka TacShot can support up to 6.6 lbs. For example, that means 35mm up to an 80-200mm f/2.8 lens. This head is ideal for both tripods and monopods.

Great alternative to Manfrotto's joystick. Its compact, solid and well design. It is suitable for any DSLR even with a power pack (like I have). Will not slip. The only thing is that the handle interferes with the level bubble which makes it hard to view and use (if required). Since I seldom use that feature it does everything else. Made of metal not plastic, its rugged and practical. I love it. Quick release mount is good, easy and strong.

The quick release plate plastic lever is extremely flimsy; cracked and broke within a couple uses. As far as I can see, there are no replacement plates for this model, unless you go through Opteka and pay more than the whole grip is worth.

This is a very handy device. I use it on my monopod and camera slider with my Canon DSLR for shooting video. You can create unlimited positions with the ball head and the grip is comfortable. I recommend it.

This is a fantastic product for the price. Once in position it holds a DSLR, very securely. Make sure your tripod has a 1/4-20 thread and not, 3/8-16 or you will have to adapt it. No biggie though, if you do.

Now this is a nice sturdy ball head mount adapter.Perfect in conjunction with a binocular tripod adapter and a monopod and my pair of 15x70 binoculars for looking at the night sky.

Le produit s'est parfaitement installer sur mon vieux trépied d'une marque peu commune. Le pistolet travaille bien et support bien le poids de la caméra. Je recommande ce produit.

Love this - handy to have a little more weight to it then I thought but a must have to help with a level shot on landscapes.

Love this grip. Use it on my monopod, and really like how I can change the angle so quickly/naturally. Money well spent.
