Manfrotto MH492-BHUS Reviews
Perfect Small Ball Head
I needed a strong and small ball head for random gear I wanted to mount on light stands. These are a tad pricey (minus one star) but you can feel the superior build quality. Locking and other functions work great.
Pricey, but Nice
It is a joy to use good quality gear.
PLEASE. Bring back the old elegant, simple version! I use this (the old one) ALL THE TIME for both light and heavy equipment. Manfrotto makes great equipment--solid. But really. Who designed this?
Great Option for Small Ball Head
If you're looking for a small but quality ball head with a good weight rating, this is the one. Great feel and hold, typical Manfrotto quality. One star off for price. Seems a bit steep but wont really complain since I trust this to hold my camera on top of a light stand.
