The included 804 3-way pan/tilt head features retractable handles, which decreases the overall size when not in use. A built-in spring assists with the tilting motion of the head by compensating for heavier lenses and cameras with off-center loads. 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 8.8 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.

The video included on this tripod (also) mentions a monopod. Not sure if this converts to a mono somehow, or if its separate but included, or? thanks! JB ps, really wanting to buy for cyber monday today, so hoping for a quick response, lol.
Asked by: Jeff
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.

I'm not 100% sure, but I think no. I investigated a little, and the L Brackets are 4.5 inches long, bigger than the space on the plate.

What is the diameter of the aluminum tubing used for the legs? I'm looking for something rather sturdy.
Asked by: M C
The largest leg diameter is 1". If you are looking for a sturdy tripod, look for a high load capacity instead of tube thickness. 20lbs or higher would be good.

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.
