  • Manfrotto Manfrotto 496 Ball Head with 200PL-PRO Quick Release Plate

    This Manfrotto 496 Ball Head features an integrated RC2 quick release cam lock and a 200PL-PRO Quick Release Plate. Compatible quick release plates can be 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 a compatible quick release plate from accidentally disconnecting.

    The 496 Ball Head with 200PL-PRO Quick Release Plate has a load capacity of 22 lb and can be attached to tripods or other support systems that feature a 3/8"-16 mount. By loosening the head's primary locking knob, the ball-and-socket joint can be quickly swiveled, angled, fully tilted, or returned to its upright position. A recessed dial set within that locking knob can be rotated to apply tension control to the ball-and-socket joint's movements. Along the opposite side of the ball head, a secondary locking knob controls the ability to rotate the head 360°.

    Cameras or accessories that are compatible with a 1/4"-20 mount can be connected to the 200PL-PRO quick release plate, as well as 3/8"-16 threads via an included bushing adapter. The plate is also compatible with separately available tripod heads that feature an Arca-type clamp.

Manfrotto 496 reviews

496RC2 Compact Ball Head Kit with 200PL-14 and 200PL Quick Release Plates is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement Head I am in the process of standardizing my adapters on all of my common equipment. This head is for my walk-around tripod with a 3 lb. camera and lens. Performance has been quite good with consistent tension, stable and smooth movement and very positive lock when needed. The RC2 plate works well with several different application's and I now leave them attached to all of my cameras and lenses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Typical Manfrotto Ruggedness I now have several Manfrotto tripod heads and have NEVER been disappointed in their performance. For me, they're the gold standard when it comes to build-quality and reliability. This model 496 RC2 is no exception. Solid and rock-steady, I'm using it with confidence in a very challenging photographic application that places a great deal of stress on its construction. It's been excellent! The kit's extra RC2 plate is a convenient plus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended; top Manfrotto quality! This ball head is excellent! It is much sturdier than I expected, perfect for everything from my mirrorless digital to my larger medium format film cameras, and everything in between.
Date published: 2017-03-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Feels Nice & Solid I think I'm going to like this ball head. I've had it now for a month or so but haven't used it yet because it's a 3/8 in screw in and my older tripod is 1/4 inch, which I was going to attach it to. So I've decided to get a new new tripod, a manfrotto, instead of just getting the screw adapter to attach it to my older tripod. I think the adapter should have been included since they're pretty cheap anyway thus the four stars for the hassle
Date published: 2018-08-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works but requires attention Ball head supports my D500 with Nikkor 200-500 f/5.6. Mostly smooth, needs some breaking in. Working to find a balance between the friction and release knobs for the smoothest movement. Satisfied.
