Manfrotto 804 Overview

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.

Which one would you recommend for the Manfrotto 190 X3? This head or the Manfrotto XPRO 3-Way? I'm not really sure about my future purchase... I hope you can help me.
Asked by: Juan
The Manfrotto 190-series tripods are lighter than the 055-series, so if you like the lightness of the 190-series, the MH804 head would be more in keeping. The XPro head is a slightly heavier head that offers more friction adjustments, and would be more in keeping with a heavier tripod with which you need more control. Otherwise, both heads offer the same functionality.

How to take this head off the central tube?

How to take this head off the central tube?
Asked by: Andrey
Manfrotto tripods have grub screws (screws without traditional heads) on the underside of the base plate that the head attaches to. Usually 3 of them. These screws are backed off before the head is screwed onto the large central 3/8" mounting screw. Once the head is screwed down as tight as possible these 3 grub screws are screwed in/up so that they press against the bottom of the tripod head. This is to keep the head from slipping lose and unscrewing itself. So, when you go to take the head off be sure to back these screws back a few turns so they are not gripping the head above. This will usually do it. Sometimes if a head has been on for a long time it will be hard to unscrew even with the grub screws backed off. Sometimes a judicious whack with a rubber mallet is just the thing.

can it hold a NIKON D610 with battery pack and a 300 MM lens without tilting?
Asked by: Harvey
That's really pushing this head's limits. Especially depending on which 300mm lens. Manfrotto makes B&H # MA808RC4 and MAMHXPRO3W. Either of these would be a better choice in this style of head. If you're mounting The 300mm 2.8 reconsider your head choice. Lenses large enough to have a tripod collar are best mounted directly by the tripod collar foot and when mounting this way there are advantages to using an Arca style quick release design and a custom Arca style quick release plate.

I have a number of 200PL quick releases. Is there a difference between the 200LT-PL mentioned here and the 200PL?
Asked by: Michael
The 200LT-PL and 200PL work in the same RC2 quick release systems. The difference is the 200LT-PL is made of a lightweight technopolymer.

To be 100% honest I dont know. I had a manfrotto Tripod and just guessed on which head to buy but it fit perfectly and I think that most of these tripod heads fit together.
