Reversible center column allows head and camera to be mounted below the tripod. This is useful for low-level shooting (because it keeps the tripod and your equipment out of the mud), working with heavy loads (because weight lowers the tripod’s center of gravity, making it more stable) and also for use with “mirror-image” view cameras.
low center of gravity
By keeping the head and camera mounting plate as low as possible, the camera is kept safely closer to the tripod’s center of gravity for more stable support.
quick release camera plate 200pl
The compact, rectangular 200PL quick release plate system fits neatly under small-bodied still cameras up to SLR (even with tele lenses) or small medium format, or under small video cameras or spotting scopes. Its rubber pad gives a good grip without damaging the camera, and its angled sides ensure that it also fits perfectly and tightly into a wide range of Manfrotto heads.

Sturdy all-metal construction.
secondary security lock
This head features a secondary security lock so you can’t accidentally release the plate (and camera) without meaning to. The lock stops the quick release lever from opening fully.
Ergonomic and easy to use.
1 bubble level
The built-in, carefully hand-set bubble spirit level helps make sure your horizons really are horizontal.
A convenient single locking mechanism blocks or frees movement on all axes for greater speed of use.
222-322 ball friction
Separate control for pre-setting the friction of the ball when unblocked. The position of the red line indicates the approximate amount of friction applied.
Combine versatility and innovation with heavy load precision. The Grip Ball Head is specially made to aid you all your photography needs.
The revolutionary design of this tripod head gives you the freedom to position your camera like never before. With one hand you can unblock, move, position and lock your camera thanks to the ergonomic grip handle. The handle incorporates a ball-lock lever, allowing you to mount one of our Electronic Shutter Release Kits.
Regulate the power of the blocking mechanism with the friction control wheel. This wheel enables you to match the weight of your camera or lens. The reduced height of this tripod head keeps its weight close to the centre of gravity. Combined with the lightweight magnesium material, you can easily transport the Grip Ball Head between shoots.
You can rely on the strength of Grip Ball Head for a load capacity of 5Kg, while the inbuilt spirit gives you a precise set up. The quick release camera plate comes with a standard 6.35mm screw and secondary safety pin, ensuring safety for you and your tripod head.
Suitable for 35mm or medium format cameras, this tripod head is perfect for your professional photography work.
