  • 1Description

At just under 3.0 lb, the Manfrotto 057 Magnesium Ball Head with RC4 Quick Release is an ideal mate to Manfrotto 475 Digital Pro, 058B Triaut and Triman tripods, as well as 057 series carbon fiber and Mk2 tripods. Thanks to the marriage of imagination and technology this brawny head provides extremely precise movements, ergonomic handling and innovative features like a 90 – 105° portrait angle selector and built-in bubble level. Despite its very light weight for its class, and low profile, it is capable of supporting up to 33 lb (15 kg). The included RC4 Quick release system with its locking plate and twist-resistant surface provides speed, balance and security.

    Manfrotto 057 reviews

    057 Magnesium Ball Head with RC4 Quick Release is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive Not a complaint but an observation: Don't be fooled by the photo in the description. Even after reading the specs, this thing turned out to be pretty big and heavy than what I imagined. Other than that it's performed very nicely. I use this ball head for double duty: 1. It's the head I use on top of my slider when doing video. I've standardized on the RC4 release plate which is the fastest that I've used. 2. It's the head I use on my tripod when taking photos. Solid, well built, and impressive! I dealt with dinky ball heads before but this one inspires confidence to say the least.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome, awesome, awesome! I use this tripod head primarily for nature and low light/night photography This tripod head is ROCK SOLID!It is silky smooth... but completely and totally secure when the ball is tightened. I love this product!It is a bit heavy but I don't care... I'll gladly trade a little extra weight for a rock solid platform for my DSLR.I HIGHLY recommend this product!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big is good I use this ball head with my 1Dx. While it's a little bit of overkill in terms of the weight applied, I use this exclusively outdoors on civil construction sites with numerous heavy excavators and trucks running around so I wanted something with a bit of extra bulk that could take the knocks that comes with working in this kind of environment. Despite all the dust and vibrations the head provides perfect stability for my photography and continues to function perfectly in substantially adverse conditions.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very high quality ball head I was searching for an upgrade of my ball head and I found this. I wanted something strong but at the same time, not as heavy.First I though this ball head would be kind of light and compact, and I was not expecting good quality out of it, although it is a manfrotto (the photos of the product make it look smaller than what it really is).But then it arrived and wow. Its kind of big and strong actually. Im really impressed with it. Really stable and the quality of the materials are much better than what I tough.I really recommend this for those who are searching for a good ball head at a lower price range.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great head for heavy gear Good ball head for heavy gear and larger lens's. Movement is precise and accurate and it stays where you put it. The amount of friction adjustment allows for very granular control to be set for any load and both the pan and ball movements are silky smooth.It is a heavy head and may not be the best choice for anyone trying to pack light, but the weight and materials give the impression of a well designed and manufactured quality product. The RC4 QC plate is large compared to some other QC plates but feels at home on larger pro end bodies, particularly with a vertical grip attached.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This ballhead works! Put this ball head on my old Manfrotto tripod because of the ability to hold 33 lbs. With my 180 - 600mm lens it is rock stable! So far, I love this ball head.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid but heavy Got this ball head to mount on my big Tripod, B.H. is about 3 pounds by its self and it feels all of it. All actions are solid and smooth as expected. I have the lighter brother (the 055 model) for my Carbon tripod and it is almost exactly the same except for the very noticeable weight difference. The only concern is that the quick release on both of them have a tendency to be a bit sticky but solid.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What I needed Very well made and easy to use for positioning the camera; a bit of a heavy side but this is no problem for me as I use it in a studio environment. It provide a sense of security that your expensive camera/lens are not going anywhere, will definitely recommend to a friend.
