The Manfrotto 496RC2 is a basic ball head that is OK on a tripod, but works very well on a monopod. The lack of a panning feature makes this head useless for panoramic landscapes where stitching photographs together is needed.
Well built, stable quick release, light weight
This is a very well manufactured and designed ballhead. It easily attached to my Manfrotto 190 tripod, I found the locking lever and friction control easily adjusted. Can't wait to get out and use it.
Yo tengo un trpode con cabezal pan&tilt, pero me resultaba algo inestable para mi Nikon D7200 con zoom 18-300mm. Con este accesorio puedo cambiar el cabezal y obtener mayor firmeza especialmente en fotografa de exteriores. Solucion mi problema. Lo recomiendo.

I got this one to use instead of my 3-way pan/tilt head as it is much lighter to carry around. It performs well with a relatively heavy setup (used it with canon 5d, with vertical grip, and with 24-70 lens). Very stable both in horizontal and vertical orientation.

This is the 2nd one of these I've ordered. It easily supports a full size DSLR with a short to mid tele lens.
This is a GREAT ball head; wonderfully and simply designed (they go together no?) and beautifully finished. I use it on top of my Sirui P-326 monopod for greater flexibility than the one-axis head afforded me and it fits like a glove (the bottom of the head is aligned perfectly with the top of the...
This is my second one I use for my monopod with my D4s. really happy with its performance!
