Manfrotto MH496-BH Compact 496 Ball Head

Key Features
  • Load Capacity: 10 kg
  • Height: 11cm
  • Weight: 400g
  • RC2 Quick Release Cam Lock

The Manfrotto MH496-BH Ball Head Compact with QR 200PL-Pro features an integrated RC2 quick release cam lock and a 200PL-PRO Quick Release Plate. Compatible quick-release plates can be removed from the head by pulling the cam lock's spring-loaded lever, which also allows the plate to be instantly reattached. The cam lock also features a safety catch to prevent a compatible quick release plate from accidentally disconnecting.

The 496 Center Ball Head with 200PL-PRO Quick Release Plate has a load capacity of 10 kg and can be attached to tripods or other support systems that feature a 3/8"-16 mount. By loosening the head's primary locking knob, the ball-and-socket joint can be quickly swiveled, angled, fully tilted, or returned to its upright position. A recessed dial set within that locking knob can be rotated to apply tension control to the ball-and-socket joint's movements. Along the opposite side of the ball head, a secondary locking knob controls the ability to rotate the head 360°.

Cameras or accessories that are compatible with a 1/4"-20 mount can be connected to the 200PL-PRO quick release plate, as well as 3/8"-16 threads via an included bushing adapter. The plate is also compatible with separately available tripod heads that feature an Arca-type clamp.
