Manfrotto 494 Center Ball Head with Universal Round Disc Mount

This 494 Center Ball Head with Universal Round Disc Mount from Manfrotto features an integrated universal round disc with 1/4″-20 threaded camera mount. It features a load capacity of 19.8 lb and can be attached to tripods or other support systems that feature a 3/8″-16 mount. By loosening the head’s primary locking knob, the ball-and-socket joint can be quickly swiveled, angled, fully tilted, or returned to its upright position. A recessed dial set within that locking knob can be rotated to apply tension control to the ball-and-socket joint’s movements. Along the opposite side of the ball head, a secondary locking knob controls the ability to rotate the head 360°.

I am an enthusiastic amateur photographer with a big passion for photography who loves to take pictures. I’m always aiming to learn new photographic skills and would like to spend more time out in the field or on a photo shoot with my camera.
