Manfrotto 293 Overview

This Manfrotto 293 Aluminum Tripod and 494RC2 Quick Release Ball Head has a load capacity of 8.8 lb, extends from 15.2" to 57.9", and weighs 4 lb. Its four leg sections are individually adjustable and are held in place via flip locks.

The 494RC2 is a lightweight ball head with a quick-release plate, and a friction control knob that allows micro movements without engaging the head-locking mechanism. A locking mechanism locks the head in both the +90°/-90° tilt positions, and the 360° panning position.

question

I would like to know if this head had a separate pan lock?
Asked by: Anonymous
No. The only controls are the ball locking lever and friction adjustment

question

I bought the 293 Tripod with 494RC2 Quick Release Mini Ball Head by Manfrotto back in 2011 and it is great but I need one that can support a bit more weight. Can you suggest a model that is similar in quality and cost?
Asked by: Anonymous
I would recommend a model like this one:It will have a slightly higher price, but it will support more weight, and will be covered by a 5 year warranty.
