Manfrotto 322RC2 Overview

The 322RC2 Ball Head from Manfrotto can be attached to tripods or other support systems that feature a 3/8"-16 mount. By squeezing the control handle's integrated trigger, the head's ball-and-socket joint can be quickly swiveled, angled, fully tilted, or returned to its upright position. A thumbwheel set within the control handle can be rotated to apply tension control to the ball-and-socket joint's movements. Once the squeeze trigger is released, any adjustments to the position of the ball-and-socket joint are locked into place.

The control handle is initially oriented to provide a horizontal grip for the right hand. However, the included 322RA Quick Release Adapter with 200PL-14 Quick Release Plate are detachable and can be repositioned to enable left-handed use with a horizontal grip. Alternatively, the 322RC2 can be transformed into a joystick-grip ball head suitable for right or left-handed use with the control handle oriented vertically and the quick release adapter attached to the top of the configuration.

When oriented for a horizontal grip, the 322RC2 has a load capacity of 11.0 lb, and 7.0 lb when configured as joystick for a vertical grip. The 322RA Quick Release Adapter features an RC2 quick release cam lock for the 200PL-14 Quick Release Plate. RC2 compatible quick release plates can be removed from the quick release adapter 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 quick release plate from accidentally disconnecting.

Cameras or accessories that are compatible with a 1/4"-20 mount can be connected to the quick release plate, which measures 1.7 x 2.1 x 0.4" and has a rubberized, non-slip surface.

What is the main difference between this and the Manfrotto 327RC2 Ball Head? https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/680140-REG/Manfrotto_327RC2_327RC2_Joystick_Head.html/qa
Asked by: andria
The 322RC2 is an older model with friction control for the ball sphere. The 327RC2 is newer and lacks the friction control.

I use my Canon 80D for videos once in a while. Will this work as a video pan?
Asked by: Bob
No, this would not be good for video. You are much better off getting a video head or you can get a hybrid head for both. Click the link below to view; https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/760106-REG/Manfrotto_MH055M8_Q5_MH055M8_Q5_Photo_Movie_Tripod_Head.html?sts=pi&pim=Y

question

I just bought this one. Dumb question time. How in the heck do you release the quick release plate ? There is no release button that I can find.
Asked by: Brian C.
Use the lever. There is a little lock that could prevent you from moving the lever all the way.

question

Can I mount this head to the Bogen 3021 tripod?
Asked by: Anonymous
Definitely. This is probably my favorite tripod head. They do wear out over time (The ball doesn't grip as well as it should and eventually your only option is to replace it.) I am on my third one. I've tried other heads but none have been as flexible and easy to work with as the grip action ball head.
