The Manfrotto 498RC4 Midi Ball Head is strong enough to take Pro DSLR cameras with large lenses, and medium format cameras. It has a single repositionable locking lever for 360° panoramic rotation, a separate lever for +/-90° tilt movements plus a friction control for safer and more precise movement. Camera to head attachment is via a Manfrotto 410PL quick-release plate with both 1/4'' and 3/8'' male threads and the head to tripod attachment is a 3/8'' female thread. The Manfrotto 498RC4 Midi Ball Head features an all aluminium construction with elliptic holes to reduce weight and a matt-black finish. This replaces the Manfrotto 488RC4.

good upgrade for the tripod
Solid piece of kit
About Me Professional
This is a very solid piece of kit. I tasked it with supporting a Canon 1 DX with a Canon 500mm f4L lens (total weight 5.1k) on this head attached to a monopod and it coped extremely well. The large quick release plate locks firmly onto the ball head and there was no hint of slip or movement. By adjusting the resistance it was possible to move this heavy combination smoothly, and it felt solid and secure the whole time.
Its a bit heavy but well made
Its works great but could be lighter
