This Manfrotto 057 Magnesium Ball Head Kit from B&H includes one 057 Magnesium Ball Head with an integrated RC5 quick release cam lock and two 501PL Quick Release Plates.

  • Manfrotto 057 Magnesium Ball Head with 501PL Quick Release Plate

    This 057 Magnesium Ball Head from Manfrotto features an integrated RC5 quick release cam lock and a 501PL Quick Release Plate. RC5 compatible quick release plates such as the 501PL can 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 501PL, or another compatible quick release plate from accidentally disconnecting.

    The 057 Magnesium Ball Head with 501PL Quick Release Plate has a load capacity of 33.1 lb and can be attached to tripods or other support systems that feature a 3/8"-16 mount. By loosening the 057 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. Finally, a two-position slide-switch at the base of the ball-and-socket joint allows it to be tilted down to either a 90° or a 103° angle before it is locked into place using the primary locking knob. The ability to tilt the ball-and-socket joint down to angle beyond 90° can be used to quickly level a camera placed on this 057 Magnesium Ball Head without having to adjust the tripod the ball head is connected to.

    Cameras or accessories that are compatible with a 1/4"-20 or 3/16"-20 mount can be connected to the 501PL Quick Release Plate which measures 2.0 x 3.5 x 0.4" and has a rubberized, non-slip surface.
