All models throughout the three ranges are designed to be reliable and secure, irrespective of which camera equipment is being supported. Options are available for all budgets and uses, from beginner through to professional grade.
Manfrotto 3 Way Head Features
The three way range feature innovative features aimed at photographers with heavier loads to support, yet need 3 directional tilt and pan features. These include lightweight aluminium designs which can be easily transported in a camera bag yet are still able to support up to 8kg loads. Typically a 3 way head will be used for smooth movements and accurate composition, for portraits, landscapes and more. Some models feature removable arms for easy stowing and transport with twist locks to ensure quick and secure fastening.
Geared Fluid Heads From Manfrotto
These types of heads are ideal for videography or subjects such as architecture and movie capture as they allow the photographer to make smooth panning shots with incredibly fine adjustments. The gearing creates a dampening feeling which defines these heads as particularly robust.
Manfrotto Ball Heads
Ballheads are the most common seen on any tripod. This is due to their flexibility, being versatile enough to be used for any style of photography or video capture. Ballheads from Manfrotto are designed with a range of features to cater for various levels of photography. Some models are heavy duty pistol-grip style, ideal for heavy loads and quick compositional adjustments. Others are made to support lower weights, ideal for travel and compact tripods.
Consider that a tripod plate may be required to secure to the bottom of your camera if it is not included with the head purchased. Check the compatibility of a quick release plate with some models compatible with traditional Arca-Swiss style connection and others conforming to Manfrotto’s custom design. All heads are compatible with both aluminium and carbon fibre tripods from Manfrotto, with weight being the main consideration for the legs.
