Quick Release Type
The Manfrotto 496RC2 Compact Ball Head is a medium sized head, lightweight, with quick release - perfect for amateurs and professionals. A ball and socket joint allows movement on all axes at the same time with a single locking mechanism, ideal for faster framing changes. Some heads in our range have double 90° grooves for portrait-landscape orientation on either side of the head. Friction can be applied to larger ball heads to help balance heavier cameras.
