Manfrotto BHQ2 overview

  • 1Description

This XPRO Magnesium Ball Head from Manfrotto features an integrated RC2 quick release cam lock and a 200PL-14 Quick Release Plate. RC2 compatible quick release plates such as the 200PL-14 can be removed from the head 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 the 200PL-14, or another compatible quick release plate from accidentally disconnecting.

The XPRO Magnesium Ball Head with 200PL-14 Quick Release Plate has a load capacity of 22.1 lb and can be attached to tripods or other support systems that feature a 3/8"-16 mount. By loosening this XPRO Magnesium Ball Head's primary locking knob, its ball-and-socket joint can be quickly swiveled, angled, fully tilted, or returned to its upright position. Toward the ball head's base is a secondary locking knob that controls the ability to rotate the head 360°. An additional knob opposite the secondary locking knob can be rotated to apply tension control to the ball-and-socket joint's movements.

Cameras or accessories that are compatible with a 1/4"-20 mount can be connected to the 200PL-14 quick release plate which measures 1.7 x 2.1 x 0.4" and has a rubberized, non-slip surface.

    Manfrotto BHQ2 reviews

    Manfrotto XPRO Magnesium Ball Head with 200PL-14 Quick Release Plate is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 94.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very solid - Very confident in this ballhead I messed around with a few other brands on sale and sent them back. Finally decided to spend a bit more and get the Manfrotto and this was a good lesson in value. This is a ballhead that is very well constructed and simply has a feeling of long lasting quality and endurance. The controls feel solid and are adjustable to fit your desire simply by pulling out and placing where you want them. The tension control is really great too so that you can adjust the tension based on the payload you have attached, heavy or light. I wish that I had made this purchase in the beginning so that I didn't waste time being disappointed and having to ship things back!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent bargain, feels professional. I recently purchased a canon 80D and a used 5D. My previous system was a canon sx 50 a much lighter bridge camera. The new gear weighs much more, especially with long lenses. The ball head and quick release system are very stable and quick to adjust. I have some smaller ball head mounts and I can see a real difference. The larger ball system is much smoother and has a positive lock so less worry about camera slip. I would not have felt secure with my old smaller head mounts. The price on this system is budget level compared to some I have seen, but for my use this is perfect and high quality. One happy man. I would get this for a friend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING!!! I purchased this ball head from a camera store (not bhphoto unfortunately), and all I can say is this head is from the gods. It has all of the normal features found in a bullhead, but has something amazing that I have not found on my previous ball head experience. When the knobs say LOCK, they mean LOCK!!! When you get your head adjusted and tighten it, the head WILL NOT MOVE!!! I love that feature. You can also adjust how fluid the ball moves. I have it at the low to mid setting It allows me to have full control, yet be able to adjust things smoothly.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Better Than Expected! I was looking for a replacement for an okder head I had used for years on my Giottis tripod. A missing part was not longer available, so I ordered this Manfrotto head after researching potions for heads with the capacity for a pro DSLR and long lenses. At 22 lbs rating, this head is perfect. For the price, I wasn't expecting a head of this quality, so I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived. It is stout, sturdy and strong. It holds my gear (Nikon D810 or D5 w/ up to 200-400mm lens) with no problem. It also has a friction adjustment which is very useful for lighter loads. Now I'm looking for a tripod upgrade to match this great head!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, easy, straight to the point This design is straight up simple but effective. Locks in my Canon 5D3 camera body and lens without movement in either P or L. Pans nicely too. But what I really enjoy about this item is that I can snap in and out the camera/lens without any fuss. Has an extra safety lock that makes me feel better about the security of the equipment. I shoot in the dark and I don't want to be messing around setting up, I just want to shoot. This one does it for me simply. Wish I had purchased it to begin with instead of the other two ball heads I've used. Now on to Manfrotto snap lock legs!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Decision This Year! I'm a fan of Manfrotto and this ball head is just one more example of why. It is a solid piece of equipment that does exactly what it is intended to do and does it well!. I had been using an older styled pan/tilt head and could not be happier about switching to a ball head. Operation is simple. Ratcheting knob allows for customizable tension on the ball while adjusting camera position. Once you lock the ball into position, it is rock solid and easily supports even my heavy 1 DX in the intended position. The icing on the cake is the quick release system which makes setup quick and easy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good ballhead Smooth. I have two issues with it though: 1) the size of the main knob, it can get in the way of a smaller knob. It should be relocated, or made a bit smaller. As a work-around, you can pull and turn the knob out of the way. The quick release plate has markings on it telling you which way to face it to the lens. Why not make it symmetrical, so it would not matter, this would be a great improvement. In spite of these two things, I would buy this ballhead again though, I can recommend it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect ball head This ball head was ideal for me, house use and landscape. You don't need to use force to lock this down (trust me on that). This is not me first ball head and I can say that is the best so for. I use it with Manfrotto 055CXPRO3 Carbon Fiber Tripod. Just buy one and don't look any more. I did my research for you.
