The Manfrotto MH057M0-Q6 Magnesium Ball Head with Q5 Quick Release Kit was put together by B&H as an ideal mate to 057 series or similar tripods. Imagination backed by advanced technology has allowed Manfrotto create a 2.8 lb head with a 33 lb load capacity and many other convenient features. Polymer rings have replaced grease for extra smooth movement and the 360 degree panning stage has its own lock. Lateral tilt has a range of -103 to +40° and there's a special 90 - 105° portrait angle selector that allows you to switch precisely to vertical format in a second. The Q6 Top Lock system uses Arca-type compatible QR plates that trip a safety locking pin when put into the quick release clamp.
The MH057M0-Q6 Magnesium Ball head comes with 2 quick release plates for its Q6 QR system.
