  • A three-way photo head specifically designed to maximize compactness and transportability, while also allowing accurate, precise framing and solid support of medium-heavy camera equipment.
  • A unique mechanism allows the handles to be 'folded' when the head is not in use. With the handles folded and running parallel, the head's dimensions are dramatically reduced, so it takes up less space when packed, and is easier and less cumbersome to carry.
  • The body is made from Adapto, a special lightweight polymer which cuts down the weight of the head, yet offers high mechanical resistance for sturdy support. The head has three levelling bubbles (on for each axis of rotation) which make it easier and faster to get straight, well-framed images in-camera, thereby saving time in post-production.

Product Description

A three-way photo head specifically designed to maximize compactness and transportability, while also allowing accurate, precise framing and solid support of medium-heavy camera equipment. A unique mechanism allows the handles to be 'folded' when the head is not in use. With the handles folded and running parallel, the head's dimensions are dramatically reduced, so it takes up less space when packed, and is easier and less cumbersome to carry. The body is made from Adapto, a special lightweight polymer which cuts down the weight of the head, yet offers high mechanical resistance for sturdy support. The head has three levelling bubbles (on for each axis of rotation) which make it easier and faster to get straight, well-framed images in-camera, thereby saving time in post-production. The head's quick release system allows the camera to be attached (or detached) safely in a second, so you're always ready to shoot.

I bought this for my Manfrotto Befree and it is perfect. To fit you need to tighten the ball head first on the Befree so it doesn't move, this then allows you to unscrew the ball head from the central column and fit the 3-Way Head. I found it easier to remove the central column from the Befree first (take the rubber stopper of the bottom - it will then slide out when you have loosened the column).
It is brilliant once fitted, extremely stable and easy to use. Once you have worked out how to change, it is quick and easy to switch between the ball head mount and the 3-way.
As with all Manfrotto items, this is a quality product.
Highly recommended.

It's ok but not quite as robust as some of the other Manfrotto heads. Having said that it will do the job I wanted it for. Landscape work, as it unusually, has spirit level in 3 planes making it very easy to sort out straight horizons, especially for panoramas.

There's nothing wrong with this head - it's reasonably well built and as it claims, relatively light. My only gripe is the fact that pan and tilt are controlled by the same handle, so if you set one and then decide you need to adjust the other, you're probably going to shift the first! The three spirit levels do help keep things, well, level; it's just fiddly to get everything aligned. In it's defence, I use this for landscape photography, so it may well suit other people and other types of photography better.

Control over positioning of my camera has never been so good, and at the price i dont think you will find better. I did a lot of comparrisons before buying this and unless you want to spend a lot more then you wont get better
