Manfrotto 468MGRC3 Hydrostatic Ball Head with RC3 Rapid Connect

Product description

Product Description

The Hydrostat is Manfrotto - Manfrotto's most advanced ball head, designed to meet the demands of professional photographers for a lightweight, but at the same time heavy duty load capacity head. This model has similar features to the standard range of ball and socket heads, with independent pan and tilt locks, 360° pan and +90° / -90° tilt movement - but employs a revolutionary friction and locking mechanism. An inner oil chamber is compressed by turning the locking knob, exerting even pressure on the whole of the underside of the ball, which ensures sturdier locking and higher capacity... for camera and lens loads of up to 16kg. This head has a magnesium die cast body, a 2 PTFE coated aluminium ball which combined with specially designed tension surfaces provides movement as smooth assilk. A calibrated adjustable tension control allows you to preset the ball tension to suit your camera weight and give you fingertip control. The oversized lock knob is easier and quicker to find and turn. The second benefit of the liquid-based locking mechanism is that it all but eliminates unwanted movement during the locking phase. Completing this masterpiece, a graduated panoramic base and a hexagonal quick release camera plate. With sturdy all-metal construction, the materials, design and construction techniques have been carefully selected to help save weight without sacrificing stability or strength. A repositionable ratche

From the Manufacturer

The Bogen-Manfrotto 468MGRC3 incorporates the same "world first" hydraulic ball-locking system as the 468MG, and uses Manfrotto's RC3 Rapid Connect Plate system. The long sliding video-type plate allows you enough room for maneuver to balance long heavy lenses safely above the center of gravity of the head/tripod, ensuring that you get maximum support from your tripod even when your camera is off-horizontal. 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.

The 468MGRC3 is designed to meet the demands of professional photographers who require a light weight head but at the same time being able to support heavy camera loads up to 35 pounds! The 468MGRC3 borrows the popular features found on Manfrotto's standard range of ball heads -- such as independent pan and tilt locks with a 360-degree pan movement and +90 to -90 degree tilt movement.

To keep weight low, the head is made of magnesium; and to provide smooth movements, the 1 1/4-inch aluminum ball is PTFE coated. The oversized ball locking knob allows for easy control even when using gloves. Completing this masterpiece is a graduated engraved panoramic base.

Features include:

  • Sturdy all-metal construction.
  • Materials, design and construction techniques have been carefully selected to help save weight without sacrificing stability or strength.
  • The double 90 degree groove (one on each side of the head) means switching from landscape to portrait is convenient however you're set up
  • 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 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.
  • A separate lock on the panoramic axis allows for rotation adjustment or panning to be carried out without losing framing.
  • Separate control for pre-setting the friction of the ball when unblocked.
  • The Hydrostat ball locking system is based on a chamber containing fluid, which, when pressurized 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.
  • Accurate degree markings on rotation axes allow for precise positioning of the camera.

What's in the Box:
Ball head, long 357PL quick release sliding camera plate.
