(From company literature) Manfrotto 468MG Hydrostatic Ball Head with RC0 Rapid Connect System. The 468MGRC0 is a "Special Order" item only. The 468MGRCO incorporates the same "world's first" hydraulic ball-locking system as the 468MG, and uses Manfrotto's well-established RC0 Hexagonal Quick Release Plate system for fast, secure locking and flexible positioning even with heavy loads.
Using hydraulics instead of a mechanical system produces a super-tight lock from a minimal turn of the locking knob, without sacrificing the smoothness of the ball’s movement when unblocked.
The 468MGRCO is designed to meet the demands of professional photographers who require a light weight head but at the same time being able to support heavy camera loads up to 35 lbs! The 468MGRCO borrows the popular features found on Manfrotto's standard range of ball heads - such as independent pan and tilt locks with a 360 degree pan movement and -90 to +90 degree tilt movement.
To keep weight low, the head is made of magnesium; and to provide smooth movements, the 1 1/4" aluminum ball is Teflon coated. The oversized ball locking knob allows for easy control even when using gloves. Completing this masterpiece is a graduated engraved panoramic base.
