Manfrotto 494 Ball Head with Friction Control

For all amateur photographers looking for a small yet powerful ball head, the 494 aluminium Center ball head enables fast and precise camera positioning. Lightweight and compact, the 494 Centre ball head is ideal for anyone looking for a quick and easy solution that helps frame shots precisely.

This tripod 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 shots framed effortlessly; an independent panoramic knob that keeps the horizon flat and moves the camera horizontally, enabling astonishing landscape shots.

The 494 Center ball head mounts a unique 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 makes it both extremely easy to set up and reliable to use in any configuration.
