The Manfrotto 494RC2 Mini Ball Head is designed for use with compact and DSLR cameras. It has a single repositionable locking lever for 360° panoramic rotation and +/-90° tilt movements plus a friction control for safer and more precise movement. Camera to head attachment is via a Manfrotto 200PL-14 quick-release plate with a 1/4'' male thread and the head to tripod attachment is a 3/8'' female thread. The Manfrotto 494RC2 Mini Ball Head features an all aluminium construction with elliptic holes to reduce weight and a matt-black finish.

Comments about Manfrotto 494RC2 Mini Ball Head:
A fine thing to carry instead of a three way head as its both far smaller and quicker to use on my old 500 series tripod. With modern artificial horizons in DSLRs it saves the expense and trouble of buying a more complicated head with a built in spirit level.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great add-on for my monopod
from South East UK
Perfect partner for my Gitzo GM2561T Traveller Monopod. It takes my Sony alpha99 and heavy G lens easily.
Fits my lightweight gitzo a treat
Perfect size for travel and ease of use.

Excellent Ball Head
from Chelmsford, Essex
I wanted a ball head for it's simplicity after struggling with a 3-way design and I'm really glad I did. I went for the smallest, lightest model I could find in the Manfrotto range to go with my Manfrotto 190CXPRO3 carbon tripod. It easily carries a Pentax K7 DSLR with 55-300mm lens and is very quick to adjust, even in the dark, as I found out last weekend at a fireworks display.
