Manfrotto 468MGRC4 Overview

This 468MG Hydrostatic Ball Head from Manfrotto includes an integrated RC4 quick release cam lock and a 410PL Quick Release Plate. RC4 compatible quick release plates such as the 410PL can removed from the head by pulling the cam lock's spring-loaded lever, which also allows the plate to be instantly reattached.

The 468MG Hydrostatic Ball Head with 410PL Quick Release Plate features a ball-and-socket joint that utilizes pressurized fluid, which helps to provide a 35.3 lb load capacity and an easy-to-tighten locking mechanism. By loosening the 468MG Hydrostatic Ball Head's primary locking knob, the ball-and-socket joint can be quickly swiveled, angled, fully tilted, or returned to its upright position. An additional knob set within that locking knob can be rotated to apply tension control to the ball-and-socket joint's movements. Along the opposite side of the ball head, a secondary locking knob controls the ability to rotate the head 360°.

Cameras or accessories that are compatible with a 1/4"-20 or 3/16"-20 mount can be connected to the 410PL Quick Release Plate, which measures 2.5 x 3.3 x 0.5" and has a rubberized, non-slip surface.

question

Can you attach a Glide gear arm to this tripod?
Asked by: Kari M.
The short answer is Yes , so long as your glide gear will mate to a 1/4 screw in the head mounting plate (same as your camera). Depending on the load of the glide gear, this head will support 35 pounds; there are stronger heads available, but most at a higher price --- all depends on what your requirements are.

question

Can I use this with a 679B Monopod?
Asked by: Derrick D.
Yes. The Manfrotto 679B Three Section Monopod has both a 1/4 -20 & 3/8 -16 thread on the top of the monopod. As the Manfrotto 468MGRC4 Hydrostatic Ball Head has a 3/8 -16 tripod socket on the bottom of the head, it would be compatible for use with the Manfrotto 679B Monopod.
