About the Manfrotto 468MGRC2

The 468MGRC2 incorporates the same "world first" hydraulic ball-locking system as the 468MG, and uses Manfrotto's popular RC2 Rapid Connect Plate, which is small and light enough to leave permanently attached to your compact or SLR camera even when not using a tripod.

Using hydraulics instead of a mechanical system produces a super-tight lock froma minimal turn of the locking knob, without sacrificing the smoothness of the ball's movement when unblocked.

The 468MG series is designed to meet the demands of professional photographers who require a light weight head but at the same time being able to support heavycamera loads up to 35lbs! The 468MGRC2 borrows the popular features found on Manfrotto's standard range of ball heads - such as independent pan and tilt locks with a 360° pan movement and +90° / -90° tilt movement.

To keep weight low, the head is made of magnesium; and to provide smooth movements, the 2" aluminum ball is Teflon coated. The oversized ball locking knob allows for easy control even when using gloves. The 468MGRC2 also has a graduated engraved panoramic base.



The Manfrotto 468MGRC2 is commonly used for Landscape/scenery, Long exposures, Night shots, Photography, Portraits, Reducing noise (ISO reduction), Stabilization, Wildlife and more.The Manfrotto 468MGRC2 is most used by customers who consider themselves to be a Photo enthusiast, Semi-pro photographer among others.The Manfrotto 468MGRC2 is popular because customers like the following qualities of the Manfrotto 468MGRC2: Attaches firmly, Large range of motion, Stable and Strong clamp.
