  • Overview
    The Manfrotto Hydrostatic Ball Head With Rc4 Rapid Connect Plate (410Pl) is designed to meet the demand of professional photographers for a lightweight, but heavy duty load capacity ball head. Intended for camera and lens loads of up to 35 lbs., this head has a magnesium die cast body, a 2" Teflon coated aluminum ball combined with specially designed tension surfaces provides movements as smooth as silk. The oversized lock knobs combined with the patent pending hydraulic locking mechanism provides the ultimate positive lock with the least amount of effort. Truly an engineering marvel!

    Specifications:
    • attachment: 1/4" and 3/8" screws attachment type
    • attachment (bottom): 3/8" female thread attachment type
    • ball friction setting: yes
    • bubble spirit level (no.): 2 number
    • color: black color
    • height: 4.72 in
    • independent pan lock: yes
    • lateral tilt: -90ᄚ / +90ᄚ tilt range
    • load capacity: 35.27 lbs
    • material: magnesium
    • panoramic rotation: 360 ᄚ
    • patent: pat. pending
    • plate type: 410PL
    • quick release: yes
    • secondary safety system: yes
    • weight: 1.61 lbs

    Features:
    • the patented PRO model has a unique design which allows the center column to be used horizontally as an extending arm, or vertically (both right-way-up and upside-down). When used horizontally, it can be turned through 360ᄚ around the tripod, and is useful for macro work, low angle shooting, extreme balance points and off-centre work. This also makes the tripod a helpful accessory for chair-bound photographers, who can sit beside instead of behind the tripod, therefore much closer to the camera viewfinder.
    • separate control for pre-setting the friction of the ball when unblocked.
    • 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
    • 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
    • a separate lock on the panoramic axis allows for rotation adjustment or panning to be carried out without losing framing
    • sturdy all-metal construction
    • the double 90ᄚ 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
    • materials, design and construction techniques have been carefully selected to help save weight without sacrificing stability or strength
    • the Hydrostat ball locking system is based on a chamber containing fluid, which, when pressurised by the tightening of the lock knob, exerts an even locking force on the ball. The evenness of the force applied by this system compared to the traditional mechanical blocking technique is what gives this head its remarkable load capacity. The Hydrostat system also reduces framing deviation during blocking for greater accuracy.
