Manfrotto launch Hydrostat ball & socket head range - This lightweight but heavy-duty load capacity ball head is Manfrotto's most advanced ball & socket head range yet.
Designed for camera and lens loads up to 16kg, the head has a magnesium die cast body and a 2 Teflon-coated aluminium ball with specially designed tension surfaces that provide incredibly smooth movement. A calibrated adjustable control allows users to preset the ball tension to suit their camera weight and give fingertip control, while the oversized lock knob hides a Patent pending mechanism that locks the camera so securely it gives the impression it is a solid part of the head.
To give professional photographers every chance of working with this new technology, Manfrotto has developed a ball head for every quick-release camera plate it manufactures as well as a fixed version for photographers who prefer this option.
Weighing between 0.65kg and 0.84kg and between 12cm and 13cm tall, the Hydrostat range starts at 200.
