It is the perfect solution for all kinds of mirrorless cameras with zoom lenses and even medium-format DSLRs, ensuring steadiness and safety. 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 knob keeps the horizon flat and moves the camera horizontally, enabling astonishing landscape shots. Framing on the new 496 is easier and opens limitless options, so you can pursue any angle your mind can think of.

With this aluminium plate fixed to the camera, all Manfrotto heads and almost all tripod heads on the market featuring Arca-swiss type attachments can be set up rapidly and effortlessly, with no need for disassembly components.
