I recently purchased the Manfrotto 327RC2 and found that it wasn't strong enough to support my Canon 7D Mk II with canon 100-400L IS ii lens attached. Late at night after a beer or two I splurged on the 468MGRC2.

I use this in conjunction with my Manfrotto carbon befree tripod - together, they are very compact and lightweight.

I went with this model to be compatible with my peak design clips and also to overcome frustration I had with other type mounts like the pan tilt and quick release type. This is my first ball head mount and I have to say I wonder why it took me so long to switch.

I have a gimbal head but needed a smaller more light weight head for travel and a photographer I know owns this and recommended it to me. This Manfrotto ball head was well worth the investment. This is the second Manfrotto ball head I purchased.

Being a small person with not the strongest hands, I was looking for a ball head that would support a lot of weight and not require much strength to tighten. I thought the hydrostatic feature would make things much easier, but didn't find that to be the case.

Solid head with tight grip and no slack. I needed an additional head after getting 2 more Manfrotto tripods to hold heavier medium format cameras. I took the bigger head off my smaller tripod and transferred it to the new one. Then I needewd a new head for the old one.

I had a cheaper version Manfrotto ball head for several years, which worked okay, but which would creep just a bit after being locked down. This hydrostatic ball head locks very solid, doesn't creep, and is so easy to use and control. I would, and already have recommended this to a friend.
