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.
Unbelievable strength for it's size. Have used with my Nikon D5 and 600mm.. no problem
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.
Recommended by a photography professional. It is a Christmas gift for my wife.
Far better than my old Manfrotto ball head, which would creep slightly after i locked it. Action is smooth yet precise. All-in-all, it's everything positive the other reviewers described it to be. (Now if only the price were a little lower.)
I've had this ball head on my tripod for a couple weeks now and have taken roughly 1000 photos with it. The friction dial is very easy to use... you basically just twist it until you get a good resting tension that feels good to you...
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.
