5.0 out of 5 stars Heavy duty indeed!, 25 Feb. 2010

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Manfrotto 322RC2 Heavy Duty Grip Ball Head (Electronics)
I went for the RC2 as I did a fair amount of research and everything was pointing towards a ball head mount for my tripod. I had purchased the Manfrotto 190 Cf Tripod-Q90-4 Section [which is superb] and wanted a mount of equal quality.

Firstly the construction and design, at first I thought it was rather cumbersome - but after a little use you soon discover that is not the case. the build quality is superb and the design has been well considered. With one hand you can easily adjust the position, lock and remove the camera with the base plate mechanism. Given some time I would imagine with just your thumb actually!!!

The base plate as mentioned in other reviews has an excellent lock as well as the usual friction lever. Once the base plate is secured to the base of your camera you can just load the plate into the dock and press down, the lever then clicks and you can lock this by flicking the lock home. I personally think the design is excellent, I feel reassured that the camera won't go anywhere once it is on the locking plate.

The base plate is metal [please excuse my ignorance with the exact material used], but has a rubber mat that will not mark your beloved camera. The locking screw has a fold away D-ring on the underside to aid attachment. Again nice considered design.

To summarise it is quality and I have already recommended it to friends.
