At 3.0 lb, the Manfrotto MH057M0-Q5 Magnesium Ball Head with Q5 Quick Release is an ideal mate to Manfrotto 475 Digital Pro, 05B Triaut and Triman tripods as well as the 057 series and Mk2 tripods. On our end, we would recommend the Manfrotto 190 series of tripod, as they are versatile, but yet affordable, as compared to the various other Manfrotto tripod series.
Thanks to the marriage of imagination and technology this heavy duty head provides extremely precise movements, ergonomic handling and innovative features like a 90 – 105° portrait angle selector and three built-in bubble levels.
Despite its very light weight for its class and low profile it is capable of supporting up to a class leading 33 lb (15 kg). The included Q5 Quick release system with its locking plate provides speed, balance and security.
