A 200LT-PL quick-release plate is included for quickly attaching and removing your camera from the head. Also included with the tripod is a shoulder bag for added comfort and protection during transport.

Manfrotto MH804 3-Way, Pan-and-Tilt Head with 200LT-PL Quick Release Plate

This MH804 3-Way, Pan-and-Tilt Head from Manfrotto has a load capacity of 22 lb and can be attached to tripods or other support systems that feature a 3/8"-16 mount. It includes an integrated RC2 quick release cam lock and a 200LT-PL Quick Release Plate. RC2 compatible quick release plates such as the 200LT-PL can be removed from the head by pulling the cam lock's spring-loaded lever, which also allows the plate to be quickly reattached. The cam lock also features a safety catch to prevent the 200LT-PL, or another compatible quick release plate from accidentally disconnecting.

Cameras, sport optics, or camcorders that are compatible with a 1/4"-20 mount can be connected to the quick release plate before securing it to the pan-and-tilt head. The head can be rotated 360°, tilted 90° forwards or 30° backwards, as well as 90° sideways for portrait orientation. Each of these three movements function independently of each other, have dedicated control handles, and can be locked into place. In addition to integrating the ability to individually lock the movements by twisting each corresponding handle's rubberized grip, the telescoping control handles for both tilt functions can also be retracted while the head is not in use for more convenient storage or transport.

To promote fast, repeatable, and accurate device positioning, this MH804 3-Way, Pan-and-Tilt Head also includes dedicated angle scales for each movement that are designed for easy visibility. For heavier loads, built-in counterbalance springs help ensure smooth as well as gradual backwards and forwards tilt movements.

Very Solid & Steady Tripod

By Jeffrey
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-03-16

This weighs just a tad more than my old tripod, but man this thing is rock solid. I use it for both still shots and video and for video, the pan is smooth and when you tighten both tilt controls there is no movement at all, which is important if you bump the camera around while plugging in things or adjusting settings - basically I no longer have to constantly re-frame the shot because it moved after I plugged a microphone in. I would not call this super-portable but if you don't need a really lightweight tripod this is a great option.

High Quality and Beautiful Design

Really high quality tripod. Love the fast easy quick release to attach the camera to the head. The tilting handles was a nice upgrade for me from a simple ball head. Best feature is the leg locks. Easy to use. No more twisting to adjust the legs. Easy click on/off to adjust height.

Great Tripod

I liked this one so much that I bought it twice, once 15 years ago and another recently because I felt the need for a second tripod. I love both of mine. They're rock solid.

This works so much better than my old tripod. I'm actually going to buy a second one for my other camera body now!

Just the thing for people with arthritis in your hands.

By George

I owned a ball head tripod but could not use it due to the small knobs used for tightening. I have arthritis in my hand and fingers and could never get it tight enough even with a camera and lens that was well under the weight limit recommended on the tripod. It would just sag to the point I could not use it. With Manfrotto pan and tilt head I don't have those problems the grips on the handles are easy to use and are rock solid.

The monopod would be a separate thing you would purchase. They only mention the monopod because it is in that same line of the 290 series.

Again.....there is a difference in the spec and the overview over the weight capacity...is it 8.8lb or 11lbs ?
Asked by: Keith
More than adequate for my two-pound scope. Not appropriate for video panning, and retractable handles don't give much leverage for uneven loads, such as a camera with telephoto lens. Otherwise, a solid, durable tripod light enough to use in the field.
