This Manfrotto 057 Magnesium Ball Head Kit from B&H includes one 057 Magnesium Ball Head with an integrated Arca-type clamp and two MSQ6PL Quick Release Plates.

  • Manfrotto 057 Magnesium Ball Head with MSQ6PL Quick Release Plate

    This 057 Magnesium Ball Head from Manfrotto features an integrated Arca-type clamp and a MSQ6PL Quick Release Plate. Arca-type compatible quick release plates can be attached or removed from the clamp by tightening or loosening the clamp's locking knob. Within the recessed surface between the clamp's jaws is a retaining pin, which prevents an installed quick release plate from accidentally sliding off when the clamp is opened.

    The 057 Magnesium Ball Head with MSQ6PL 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'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 mount can be connected to the MSQ6PL Quick Release Plate, which measures 2.8 x 2.2 x 0.4".

057 Magnesium Ball Head Kit with MSQ6PL Quick Release Plates is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and steady I purchased the Manfrotto MH057M0-Q6 Magnesium Ball Head with Q6 Quick Release Kit to use with my Manfrotto 057 Carbon Fiber Tripod. The ball head is light, sturdy and will support the heaviest equipment I have without worries when switching out gear in different scenarios. Also, I preferred the Q6 plate that is compatible with other support peripherals that I own.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Plate slides around way to much You can crank the plate down to your camera and it still slides loose, hate this thing the tripod head is great other then this 1 thing. whoever designed the plate didn't think about what they were doing at all. Either find another plate or don't buy, its a pain constantly adjusting it when your trying to get a shot.
