Manfrotto 050 Center Ball Head Series

03/01/2011 — 


The 057 and 054 ball head range provides the perfect matches for Carbon Fiber tripods, with a wide range of QR attachments. The 057 range is comprised of 3 ball heads: one traditional disc attachment version; a ball head with a RC4 quick release system- perfect for heavy equipment and long lenses thanks to the large contact area; and the third with the new magnesium Q5 Quick Release system that offers increased ergonomics, speed, reduced weight and accuracy, thanks to 3 levelling bubbles. The 054 range consists of one ball head with a traditional disc attachment, the second with a Q2 Quick Release and the third with a Q5 Quick Release. Both ranges incorporate a robust magnesium body with improved lightness and new ergonomic levers for better comfort and velocity, with each head also including self lubricant ring for ultra-smooth movement. The unique 90°-105° Portrait Selector provides more versatility for vertical shooting both indoors and outdoors, as new ergonomic levers create improved comfort and speed in operation. In addition the newly improved ergonomic plate design offers high rapidity and comfort when attaching and detaching the camera. The innovative mechanisms for precise settings, outstanding design and advanced ergonomics of both the 057 and 054 pro ball heads secure their place as the number one choice for Carbon Fiber tripods.
