      Comments about Manfrotto 057 Magnesium Ball Head:

      I have ARCA-SWISS Z1, RRS BH-55, Markins, FEISOL, Cullmann AND others.
      Manfrotto 057 is one of the best BALL HEAD.
      Extremery solid lock with-in 90 degrees lever operation and minimum angle drift.
      Not need portrait angle for me.
      Weight is too heavy to general use.
