Sturdy

  • Excerpt: I'm not a cult follower of Manfrotto, just needed a sturdy mount for Astrophotography. This does the job well so far in the three times I've used it.

Perfect smaller cousin of the 498RC2

  • Excerpt: I use the 496RC2 as a secondary ball head to my Manfrotto 498RC2. I needed a smaller, lightweight version of the bigger 498RC2 and this is perfect for my needs, and it also accepts the same quick-release plates that my other Manfrotto ball heads use.

Deeply flawed, but usable

Brennan, B&H Photo
7 January 2016
  • Excerpt: The 2 biggest issues are that this sags in portrait orientation and that the cam lever cant move past the camera back in some positions in portrait. It is light and flexible, but the drawbacks caused my to get a more robust head and stick this on a monopod where it is works fine.

Manfrotto of 15 years ago had better equipment

Vasya, B&H Photo
15 December 2015
  • Excerpt: Yes, everything still made in Italy, but it is not the same quality anymore. I don't think that the ball inside made from steel components. It is rather made from some kind of plastic.

Great value

Zac, B&H Photo
21 October 2015
  • Excerpt: I don't have a lot of experience with the professional grade equipment, but this has been great so far! Very stable, easily Adjustable, and tall enough to get a great angle. The mount tightens up enough to hold my camera stable, and rotates all over for the perfect shot.
