The Manfrotto MH494-BH aluminium centre ball head is a lightweight and compact ball head which can support up to 8kg. The small, yet powerfull, ball head enables fast and precise camera positioning making it ideal for photography or fixed position video use.
The MH494-BH ball head is made of highly-resistant, lightweight aluminium, so it is both extremely portable and strong enough to cope with a payload up to 8 kg. It is the perfect solution for all kinds of mirrorless cameras with zoom lenses and even medium-format DSLRs.
This advanced ball head combines practicality with high functionality and features three independent controls: a main knob for managing the sphere lock, an integrated friction control knob that adjusts the ball tension so that equipment weight is always perfectly balanced and an independent panoramic knob that keeps the horizon flat and moves the camera horizontally, enabling astonishing landscape shots.
The MH494-BH Center ball head has a unique camera plate that makes it fully compatible with the world’s most widespread standard camera plates: Manfrotto RC2 and Arca-swiss style. With this aluminium plate fixed to the camera, all Manfrotto heads and almost all tripod heads on the market featuring Arca-style attachments can be set up rapidly and effortlessly, with no need for disassembly components.
The 494 Center ball head’s design make it both extremely easy to set up and reliable to use in any configuration.
