Ordered the 10.5 stone 360! Matt was fast to reply and gave advice regarding the rotation points. Speedy deliver and was taking perfect HDRs an hour later - has sped up my on set workflow! Being able to capture a HDR in 30 seconds! Brilliant device!

Product was shipped next day, and arrived in about a week (at christmas time, no less!). I had this product unpacked, and set up on my tripod in under 3 minutes. Anyone who claims they need instructions to assemble this product should stick to fingerpainting, not photography.
I know a little about CNC machining, and I know the effort it takes to make the smallest changes to suit different products, I was expecting an "OK" fit for the lens, but that's not what I got. The fit on the Nikon 10.5mm is very snug and precise. The rotation clicks (I bought 12) are solid, and feel well built.
I did a quick and dirty 4x3 shot (Bracketed) 360x180 of my living room, they stitched perfectly, and produced a perfect sphere, with no points needing to be corrected. I was ecstatic.
I do have some very minor gripes, and whilst they're definitely not deal-breakers, they'd make this a 6 star product easily. ;)
Tools. Whilst the head arrives with 2 Allen Keys/wrenches, I would really love to see some kind of quick-release clamp, not because I want to constantly remove the bracket from my lens, mainly because if it was to come loose at some stage, I don't want to have to go hunting for tools. Not a big deal, just an idea.
Inclusion of a 3/4" to 1/4" Tripod thread adapter. Whilst the head mounts perfectly on my Manfrotto tripod, I would like to be able to also use a ball head, and mount it on that, then I can level easily, and shoot floors if needs be. I guess they don't provide as good a hold as the larger thread, and that may affect the products structural integrity, I guess I'll find out.
As you can see - the negatives I have are seriously not important. Build quality was my main concern, for precise images, and I did a lot of research online, and noticed a lot of bad reviews... I can honestly say that mine was delivered in perfect condition (with only incredibly mild wear marks on the hex heads from I'm guessing manual assembly).
I would like to congratulate the team @ 360Precision for producing a product that they can and should be proud of. Well done guys.
Light and good manufactured
