The Manfrotto 492 Micro Ball Head is an easy to use, but yet well made ball head. It features a strong die-cast aluminum housing plus a hard, tough ball that moves smoothly into position. It has a single control for complete 360° pans and ±90° tilts, fast even movements, and can be instantly locked off in any position. If you are looking for something for your point and shoot cameras, the Manfrotto 492 Micro Ball Head would be the one you would need to look for.
However, it you are looking for something more substantial or your camera is bigger than a point and shoot, you might want to want to consider the other Manfrotto ball heads.
