I vote for number 11.
An ideal subject for monochrome and very unusual positioning

They are garbage and the reason they don't move smoothly is that they don't have any bearings in them as advertised.
I had all sorts of problems getting them to admit to this and I sent mine back for replacement.
The new one arrived and was worse than the original. I then pulled it apart to find the problem of no bearings.
Then they said send it back to them with tracking post. I gave up at this stage as it orginally cost about $120
and with the additional cost of a second $50 to return it it all became unviable, particularly if there was a problem with the refund.
In other words don't buy a Beike or other branded alternative as you will get the same thing.

I apologise for the trouble as I should have read the instruction book properly.
The focus was set on Manual.
Many thanks, Bruce Wells

I read with interest the reports on the Beike BK45 Gimbal head.
I am disappointed that they advertise needle or roller bearings in the swing axis.
I sent my first one back for replacement as it was super tight and the one sent back
to me was as bad or worse. They definitely falsly advertise bearings that aren't there.
Can anybody tell me where I can get a replacement camera plate as mine has gone missing.
Do the Arca Style plates fit this unit?.
I would appreciate any help, thank-you.
