ball friction
Separate control for pre-setting the friction of the ball when unblocked.
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.
repositionable ratchet lever
A repositionable ratchet means that the locking lever's action will never be blocked either open or closed by interference with the camera body, tripod shoulder, etc. Simply pull the lever outwards and it's free to be positioned more comfortably without affecting the locking mechanism; then you can continue tightening or loosening the knob.
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.
separate pan lock
A separate lock on the panoramic axis allows for rotation adjustment or panning to be carried out without losing framing.
sturdy all-metal construction
Sturdy all-metal construction.
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.
Ergonomic and easy to use.
weight-saving construction
Materials, design and construction techniques have been carefully selected to help save weight without sacrificing stability or strength.
