As part of the tripod, the Arca-type compatible ball head has a main locking knob to control the ball movement, and an independent pan-locking knob for the 360° rotation of the head. The ball head has a 200PL-Pro Aluminum Plate that is compatible with other Arca-type and RC2 quick release systems. The head's load capacity is 17.6 lb, so it can support mirrorless to large DSLR cameras without difficulty.

Bought this to replace a Dolica that I broke through my own foolishness. Light and does the job.

I have put up with standard style tripods for a few years now; with frustrations over having to make numerous adjustments for even simple shots. So I went to a ball head & it's wonderful. I'm glad I went for a higher quality product in Manfrotto. Simple setup and easy adjustment. It's sturdy and can be quickly set to local anomalies. It's a little confusing to flip the legs down an adjust but simple once you get the hang of it. Ball head works smoothly and tightens according to need. It carries my Canon 5D with no problem. I got it on a Black Friday deal. Score! I recommend this product for light to medium use. Ball head is the way to go!

Recently bought a 4x5 camera and was on the lookout for a great tripod that wouldn't break the bank and came across this one. So far it seems to be doing its job just fine and hopefully it'll stay like so going forward!

Lightweight, high quality, durable

Manfrotto lives up to its reputation with this tripod. Among the 4 that I have in my studio, this one is by far my favorite. It's infinitely adjustable at every angle and MOST heights. I love the bubble level, the safe mount, the well-constructed adjustment knobs, the smooth gliding ball head, and the responsive tightening knobs on the legs. My only regret is that this tripod cannot get to eye level while standing (max height 5'3), though that's my fault for not reading the description closely enough. All in all, I don't think I'll be able to use any brand aside from Manfrotto after this. As with most things, you get what you pay for, and the professional grade price tag on this equipment certainly yields professional results. Especially in contrast to the cheaper alternatives, I'd argue that the quality-to-price ratio is MUCH higher on this equipment. Very much worth it, and I'm glad that I did not pay extra for the Traveler tripod -- unless you're hiking or carrying this tripod for extended periods, I'd say that this one is plenty lightweight for easy carrying on a backpack or in the provided carrying case for most day-to-day use.

This is a good tripod, everything feels pretty good quality, especially the adjustment knobs, those are nice! I feel like you pay a bit extra for the mannfrotto name, but it's still a good tripod. When fully extended the supports get quite skinny, but it's still sturdy. It does fold up nice and small and it's light! Overall it's definitely not a wasted investment!

Will the photo clicker that comes with it, work with camera or is it only for mobile?

As far as we are aware, this does not come with a "photo clicker". Furthermore, most basic "photo clickers" only work with smartphones and not cameras. If you need help finding a wireless remote shutter release for your camera, please reach out via email or live-chat and we can assist you!

Yes, but I would not recommend it, this tripod has a ball head and is not meant for video shooting. A pan tilt head is what should be use for video. Click the link below to view a better choice; https://bhpho.to/3fngugj
