Take the versatility of a ball head, add true ergonomic control and you get the 322RC2 Horizontal Grip Action Ball Head with RC2 Rapid Connect Plate from Manfrotto: a photographic head that allows you to unblock, move, position and lock your camera with one hand in one position thanks to the revolutionary design of its grip handle, which incorporates the ball lock lever and can also mount the 322RS shutter release accessory. A friction control wheel lets you regulate the power of the blocking mechanism to match the weight of your camera/lens. The 322RC2 is made from magnesium for lightweight performance, and is designed to keep the weight of your kit as close as possible to the tripod's centre of gravity by way of its reduced height. It is this fact, matched with the precision construction of the 322RC2 that gives the head its load capacity of 5kg. Complete with built-in bubble spirit level and quick release camera plate (standard 1/4" screw, with secondary safety pin). Suitable for use with 35mm or medium format cameras.
The built-in, carefully hand-set bubble spirit level helps make sure your horizons really are horizontal.
Separate control for pre-setting the friction of the ball when unblocked.
The position of the red line indicates the approximate amount of friction applied.
The compact, rectangular 200PL quick release plate system fits neatly under small-bodied still cameras up to SLR (even with tele lenses) or small medium format, or under small video cameras or spotting scopes.
Its rubber pad gives a good grip without damaging the camera, and its angled sides ensure that it also fits perfectly and tightly into a wide range of Manfrotto heads reversible center column allows head and camera to be mounted below the tripod - useful for: low-level shooting (because it keeps the tripod and your equipment out of the mud); working with heavy loads (because weight lowers the tripod's center of gravity, making it more stable) and also for use with "mirror-image" view cameras this head features a secondary security lock so you can't accidentally release the plate (and camera) without meaning to.
The lock stops the quick release lever from opening fully a convenient single locking mechanism blocks or frees movement on all axes for greater speed of use sturdy all-metal construction ergonomic and easy to use by keeping the head and camera mounting plate as low as possible, the camera is kept safely closer to the tripod's centre of gravity for more stable support
