(From company literature) Manfrotto 486 Compact Ball Head. Compact, yet strong enough to support heavier camera loads than its predecessor, the 3413 Pro Ball Head, the new 486 is a great choice for 35mm SLR cameras with medium lenses, and light medium format cameras.
A strong die-cast construction, precision machined aluminum housing, and an extremely hard phenolic resin ball provides smooth movements across all tilt positions.
The 486 features a single ratchet locking knob for 360 degree pan and a double groove for -90 to +90 degree tilt movements. Camera attachment is via a 2" platform with a 1/4"-20 male thread, and head to tripod attachment is 3/8" female.
