The Manfrotto 494 Mini Ball Head w/RC2 QR Plate is a lightweight ball head that's perfect for smaller cameras (maximum load – 8.82 lb). It's got a quick-release plate, a newly designed friction control knob that allows micro movements without engaging the head-locking mechanism, and a locking mechanism that will lock the head in both the +90Â°/-90Â° tilt position and the 360Â° panning position.
- A new friction control knob allows micro movements without having to engage the head locking mechanism
- A smart ratcheting locking lever allows the user to place it in a comfortable position in order to use it in the most convenient way
- The locking lever securely locks the head both in the +90Â° and -90Â° ball positions and in the 360Â° pan movements
