The 322RC2 Ball Head from Manfrotto can be attached to tripods or other support systems that feature a 3/8"-16 mount. By squeezing the control handle's integrated trigger, the head's ball-and-socket joint can be quickly swiveled, angled, fully tilted, or returned to its upright position. A thumbwheel set within the control handle can be rotated to apply tension control to the ball-and-socket joint's movements. Once the squeeze trigger is released, any adjustments to the position of the ball-and-socket joint are locked into place.

The control handle is initially oriented to provide a horizontal grip for the right hand. However, the included 322RA Quick Release Adapter with 200PL-14 Quick Release Plate are detachable and can be repositioned to enable left-handed use with a horizontal grip. Alternatively, the 322RC2 can be transformed into a joystick-grip ball head suitable for right or left-handed use with the control handle oriented vertically and the quick release adapter attached to the top of the configuration.

When oriented for a horizontal grip, the 322RC2 has a load capacity of 11.0 lb, and 7.0 lb when configured as joystick for a vertical grip. The 322RA Quick Release Adapter features an RC2 quick release cam lock for the 200PL-14 Quick Release Plate. RC2 compatible quick release plates can be removed from the quick release adapter by pulling the cam lock's spring-loaded lever, which also allows the plate to be instantly reattached. The cam lock also features a safety catch to prevent a quick release plate from accidentally disconnecting.

Cameras or accessories that are compatible with a 1/4"-20 mount can be connected to the quick release plate, which measures 1.7 x 2.1 x 0.4" and has a rubberized, non-slip surface.

"Love it...In love!...Intuitive and Vesatile...The quick release doesactually work as it is supposed to unlike othermanufacturers so that was a big plus to me.Cons-Some times when shooting high speed action I actuallyuse this backwards since I am right handed and tend to usemy right hand to press the shutter release and it stillworks great though not as much freedom of movement !"

The Wimberley WH-200 Gimbal Tripod Head II with Quick Release Base is a gimbal-type tripod head that incorporates an elevated tilt mechanism and adjustable platform to make the camera/lens' center of gravity and tilt axis of the head be perfectly aligned.

Things once thought of as impossible with a ball head are nothing short of mundane with a Wimberley, because a weightless camera/lens combo (even a 600mm f/4 w/ large body) can literally be controlled with one finger. Point the rig where you want and take the hand away, and it stays exactly where you put it.

The Version II head is more compact and lightweight, features a redesigned panning base, "soft-touch" knobs, and includes a built-in Arca-type compatible quick release base. An Arca-type quick release plate is required and is available separately.

The blue MeFoto RoadTrip Travel Tripod Kit offers a sturdy, compact aluminum alloy tripod that extends to 61.6", supports up to 17.6 lb, and folds down to just over 15". The RoadTrip is actually two camera supports in one. A foam-cushioned, removable leg attaches to the center column to convert to full size monopod.

The ball head offers separate head and pan locks, a 360° pan index, and an integral bubble level. An Arca-type compatible quick release plate with a 1/4"-20 camera screw is included in the kit, along with a durable carry case with a shoulder strap for storage and transport.

This titanium-colored,SLIK Pro 700 DX Tripod with 700 DX 3-Way, Pan-and-Tilt Head supports up to 19.8 lb, measures 29.9" when folded, and includes a quick release plate. Each of its 3-section legs features an independent spread, a 3-position angle lock, and flip locks for fast deployment. The included push-and-pull, rapid center column is multi-sectional, which allows it to be converted to a shortened center column. This feature permits a minimum height of 25.4" or 16.1" when the center column is shortened. The SLIK Pro 700 DX Tripod provides a maximum height of 60.0", 65.8" with its center column shortened as well as fully raised, and 75.0" with the complete column fully raised.

Cameras, sport optics, or camcorders that are compatible with a 1/4"-20 mount can be connected to the quick release plate, which is secured to the tripod's pan-and-tilt head using a quick release cam lock. The head can be rotated 360°, and tilted 90° backwards or forwards, as well as sideways for portrait orientation. Each of these three movements function independently of each other and can be locked into place.

For added versatility, the center column is reversible, facilitating low-angle photography where an attached camera is positioned among the tripod's legs instead of above them. Foam covers on each of the legs provide a secure and comfortable grip while moving the tripod, and rubber feet help to enhance stability on a wide variety of surfaces.

B&H # MAMVH502AH MFR # MVH502AH

The Manfrotto 502AH Pro Video Head with Flat Base is an affordable yet remarkably fully featured professional head that represents an advance over the popular 501HDV, with sturdier construction and featuring Manfrotto's patented bridging technology (inherited from the 509 and 504 heads). This head is designed for executing cinematic moves with compact camcorders and DSLR video cameras. The 502AH comes in two versions—the "AH" flat-base version such as this, and the "A" ball base version which is separately available.

The weight capacity is 15.4 lb and counterbalance supports 8.8 lb. The balance plate's 3.27" range allows you to correct for uneven payloads due to matte boxes or DSLR rig configurations.

The bridging technology ensures that the pan friction control is intuitive and easy to set, but also protected against knocks. There are independent locks for pan and tilt, and drag for both is selectable in a continuous range from zero to the max level. This allows you to operate the head in a confident, smooth manner using the included pan bar.

"5 Stars...love it!...Very smooth pans and easy to use....This one was a good fit because it is a lot of solid product for not much money, and it has a flat base so I could adapt it to an existing set of tripod legs rather than buy a video tripod that uses a bowl."

"Love It!...Love it....Makes fine tuning the composition easy....The build quality seems to be superior to the 322RC2, and even though a bit hefty, that's not a problem for me, as I use the Wimberley I gimballed head a lot for bird photography (5 pounds)."

The Manfrotto Heavy Telephoto Lens Support is designed to allow a telephoto lens and camera combination weighing up to 44.1 lb to be easily tilted and locked into place. It features a swing positioned inside a frame that can be attached to tripods or other support systems with a 3/8"-16 mount. Pushing a lens and camera placed on the swing raises the front of the lens upward, while pulling the lens and camera points the front of the lens towards low-angle subjects.

A telephoto lens with an integrated foot or lens collar that is compatible with a 1/4"-20 or 3/8"-16 mount can be connected to the included 357PLV Quick Release Plate, which measures 2.2 x 5.5 x 0.5" and has a rubberized, non-slip surface. The quick release plate and the attached lens can then be set and locked within the 357PL Quick Release Adapter at the center of the Manfrotto Heavy Telephoto Lens Support's swing, which is attached to both sides of the frame using two screw-in locking knobs. While loosened, both locking knobs allow a lens and camera placed on the swing to be pushed and pulled until the desired angle is obtained. The locking knobs can then be tightened, preventing further movement of the swing.

Before a telephoto lens is secured to the Manfrotto Heavy Telephoto Lens Support, the locking knobs can be fully unscrewed and removed from the frame, which also detaches the swing. Three pairs of threaded screw holes each along both sides of the swing allow it to be elevated or lowered relative to the frame. Higher swing positions can provide a lens and camera with additional height when needed, while the lowest position can be maintained to help maximize stability.

"Wow !...Good deal...Very smooth operation and very stable...That said, I can't see why I'd pay 2-3 times the price for another Gimbal head, as this is easy to install, easy to use, easy to get the right balance and provides a great experience with my Canon 1Dx, Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 lens and Canon 2x converter."
