  • Conclusion: Other features include a bubble level on the tripod collar, but there isn't one in the ball head to help level your camera. The new-generation 496RC2 improves on its predecessor by including an adjustable friction damper, but there's no separate pan control.
  • Pros: Tough, sturdy and dependable build quality, Quick and easy adjustment of all controls, Very stable, even at the maximum height of 187cm
  • Cons: Pivoting centre column lacks 180-degree versatility, No carrying case supplied with tripod, Ball head lacks a separate pan-only control
