Manfrotto MF 468MG Hydrostatic Ball Head

The 468_MG, using hydraulics instead of a mechanical system produces a super-tight lock from a minimal turn of the locking knob, without sacrificing the smoothness of the ball's movement when unblocked. Designed to meet the demands of professional photographers who require a light weight head but at the same time being able to support their heavy camera loads up to 16kg (35lbs)!

The MF_468MG borrows the popular features found on Manfrotto's standard range of ball heads - such as independent pan and tilt locks with a 360° pan movement and +90° / -90° tilt movement. To keep weight low, the head is made of magnesium; and to provide smooth movements, the 2" aluminum ball is Teflon coated.

For additional control, a calibrated adjustable tension knob allows you to preset the ball friction to suit your camera weight so that you can remove your hands from the camera without risking the camera falling. The oversized ball locking knob allows for easy control even when using gloves.

Completing this masterpiece is a graduated engraved panoramic base and a choice of six different Hydrostat Ball Head versions with fixed or quick-release camera attachment systems. The 468MG fixed attachment system has an easy-to-grip notched ring that turns the camera mounting retractable 1/4"-3/8" screw making it easier to mount your camera to the head.
