Manfrotto 804 Overview

  • 1Description

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.

    Manfrotto 804 Reviews

    MH804 3-Way, Pan-and-Tilt Head with 200LT-PL Quick Release Plate is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong dang head I have owned this for several months and haven't had any problems. Love this one. Then the other night I was photographing on the streets of Chicago and was headed back to my hotel. I had my camera on my tripod carrying it on my shoulder. Someone came out of a dark alley and and tried to push me down and he grabbed my camera. We got into quite a tug a war. At any moment I was waiting for that camera to break free of the tripod but it never did. Dang thing took a beating and held on tight. It is a strong secure tripod head and I feel comfortable securing my camera equipment on it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I've always loved Manfrotto equipment. Always built tough. I purchased this head to allow my complete assembly to fit in a shoulder bag. The extendable handles push in just enough to fit. I purchased this one over a cheaper foldable handle Manfrotto due to having a security button on the quick release. Very satisfied :)!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid, hard to improve I already had the MHXPRO-3W, which has twice the load capacity, is aluminum alloy, tension adjustment dials, and is a few dollars more. Honestly, I wish I had just bought this first. In practice, it seems to be more than capable of everything I need it to do and the MHXPRO-3W is overkill. This head was bought specifically to use on a Sirui HA-77 horizontal arm. The D800 will be pointed straight down, so while a ballhead would've been smaller and probably cheaper, finding one that doesn't drift in that scenario would be frustrating or more expensive. 3-way heads are just more reliable, imo. This one is solid, I have no complaints other than maybe the size/weight.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice and compact unit. Easy set up, everything is ready to go. Just install on tripod and your ready to go. The MH804-3W is a firm unit, no play when rotating different levers.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice little head It works, not very sturdy but pretty light. Made of plastic resin, not metal. Good match with my carbon fiber small Manfrotto tripod. Retractable handles are a nice touch, makes it more compact for transporting.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from NICE IMPROVEMENTS ON PREVIOUS MODEL Great tripod head. Bought it to replace an 804RC2 that got run over by a car, not a pretty story except that the tripod survived unscathed. The collapsible handles are great, especially for packing in up. It fits with the mounting plate from my old head, which is convenient for 2 cameras or for a camera and a telephoto lens. And it's pretty light.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very solid In general I find all Manfrotto products overpriced BUT I will admit they are solid and very well machined plus they seem to last forever.? "Expensive but worth it" :-)
