Manfrotto 460MG 3-Way Head,
This review is from: Manfrotto 460MG 3-Way Magnesium Head (Accessory)
This is a very well designed and innovative 3-way head. Straight out the box, one is presented with exceptional build quality. This head is compact and light, due to its magnesium construction, but still feels rugged and stable. All moving parts are precise with no play once locked into place.
Instead of the usual pan and tilt handles, this head comes with three adjustment knobs, which are large and coated with tough rubber grips. Once you get used to where the knobs are and what they do, agjustments are quick and effortless; a few small turns on each will lock your camera securely. Manfrotto seem to have got the balance between speed and precision bang on.
The head has a small spirit level and an angular measurement disc to aid those stitched panoramic shots. It also comes with a quick release plate with safety catch.
The 460MG's trump card is its versatility. Coupled with the Manfrotto 055XPROB tripod, I have yet to encounter a situation beyond its reach. One can achieve every possible angle with ease and there are no long, obtrusive handles to get in the way.
My first Manfrotto purchase has certainly not left me dissapointed. An outstanding piece of kit at a very affordable price.
