496 Centre Ball Head
This tripod is kitted out with Manfrotto’s advanced 496 centre ball head, a portable yet powerful and intuitive head that allows smooth and precise camera movement. This advanced ball head combines practicality with high performance and features three independent controls that give it the versatility to suit any environment. A main ergonomic knob manages the sphere lock, an integrated friction control knob adjusts the ball tension so that equipment weight is always perfectly balanced, and shots framed effortlessly. An independent panoramic know keeps the horizon flat and moves the camera horizontally, enabling astonishing landscape shots. Framing on the 496 is easier and opens limitless options, so you can pursue any angle you can think of.
The head mounts a unique plate that makes it fully compatible with the world’s most widespread standard heads attachments: Manfrotto RC2 and Arca-swiss style. With this plate fixed to the camera, all Manfrotto heads and almost all tripods heads on the market feature Arca-swiss style attachments and can be set up rapidly and effortlessly, with no need for disassembly components.
