- Manfrotto 468 Hydrostatic Ball Head
Intended for photographer’s who demand for a ball head that caters heavy duty load yet lightweight. The Manfrotto 468 Hydrostatic Ball Head weighs only 0.65 kg but it can withstand a heavy payload of 16 kg. This head is of magnesium die cast body with PTFE coated aluminum partnered with tension surface for smooth movements. The independent pan lock is combined with the hydraulic locking mechanism to provide ultimate safety of your equipment. Measuring at 13 cm working height this ball head is really a work of art.
Product Features in Detail
1 bubble level
The built-in, carefully hand-set bubble spirit level helps make sure your horizons really are horizontal.
222-322 ball friction
Separate control for pre-setting the friction of the ball when unblocked. The position of the red line indicates the approximate amount of friction applied.
Included carrying handle makes the tripod more comfortable to transport and stays conveniently and unobtrusively attached during use
separate lock each axis
With a separate lock on each axis of movement, this head can be precisely adjusted, and panning/tracking can be achieved on any axis
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
Materials, design and construction techniques have been carefully selected to help save weight without sacrificing stability or strength
wing-nut leg locks
Wing nut leg locks are slightly slower to use than 'Quick Action' flip lever leg locks, but give total control over locking force and are so easy to service out in the field that they'll never let you down.
hydrostatic locking mechanism
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.
