Hydrostatic Ball Head with RC4 Rapid Connect Plate

190-055 pro center column

The patented PRO model has a unique design which allows the center column to be used horizontally as an extending arm, or vertically (both right-way-up and upside-down). When used horizontally, it can be turned through 360° around the tripod, and is useful for macro work, low angle shooting, extreme balance points and off-center work. This also makes the tripod a helpful accessory for chair-bound photographers, who can sit beside instead of behind the tripod, therefore much closer to the camera viewfinder.

hydrostatic locking mechanism

The Hydrostat ball locking system is based on a chamber containing fluid, which, when pressurized by the tightening of the lock knob, exerts an even locking force on the ball. The evenness of the force applied by this system compared to the traditional mechanical blocking technique is what gives this head its remarkable load capacity. The Hydrostat system also reduces framing deviation during blocking for greater accuracy.

weight-saving construction

Materials, design and construction techniques have been carefully selected to help save weight without sacrificing stability or strength.

double 90° groove

The double 90° groove (one on each side of the head) means switching from landscape to portrait is convenient however you're set up.

quick release camera plate 200pl

The compact, rectangular 200PL quick release plate system fits neatly under small-bodied still cameras up to SLR (even with tele lenses) or small medium format, or under small video cameras or spotting scopes. Its rubber pad gives a good grip without damaging the camera, and its angled sides ensure that it also fits perfectly and tightly into a wide range of Manfrotto heads.

sturdy all-metal construction

Sturdy all-metal construction.

secondary security lock

This head features a secondary security lock so you can't accidentally release the plate (and camera) without meaning to. The lock stops the quick release lever from opening fully.

ergonomic

Ergonomic and easy to use.

ball friction

Separate control for pre-setting the friction of the ball when unblocked.
