Manfrotto renews the complete range of ball heads with an eye to design, ergonomics and performance
Always aiming to satisfy the photographers' needs in terms of performance and ergonomics the Manfrotto ball heads family has been completely renewed.
With an eye on and to ergonomics, the heads and the knobs have been redesigned in order to be more ergonomic and easier to handle.
The Manfrotto ball heads range provides different solutions for different needs, with a payload range that goes from 2kg to 8kg.
The first 3 models to be launched (492, 494 and 496) will substitute the previous models, in a way that all the range will be renewed. Two codes will feature the quick release plate (494RC2 and 496RC2), and three codes will identify the heads featuring a simple plate (492, 494 and 496).
To these 3 heads another one will be following soon, the big 498, also with quick release plates versions (498RC2 / 498RC4).
The ball heads family features a completely new friction control which allows micro movements without opening/closing the head lock. The friction control is present in all models except the small 492 head.
The locking lever is also repositionable, in a way that you can place it in the most convenient position for you to handle it. This smart feature makes it easier and quicker to work with this head.
Moreover, the models featuring the quick release plate, include a further safety system that avoids the accidental detaching of the camera from the head.
These new Manfrotto heads are the ideal support for all needs!
