Take the versatility of a ball head, add true ergonomic control and you get the Manfrotto 322RC2 Horizontal Grip Action Ballhead! The 322RC2 is unique in that it allows you to unblock, move, position and lock your camera with one hand in one position.
The 322RC2 is made from magnesium for lightweight performance, and is designed to keep the weight of your equipment as close as possible to the tripod's center of gravity by way of its reduced height. It is this fact, matched with the precision construction of the 322RC2 that gives the head its load capacity of 11 lbs (5.5lb capacity when in the vertical position). The 322RC2 comes complete with a built-in bubble spirit level and quick release camera plate (standard 1/4 - 20" screw, with secondary safety pin).
The 322RC2 is suitable for use with 35mm or medium format cameras. The friction control wheel of the 322RC2 lets you regulate the power of the blocking mechanism to match the weight of your camera and lens. In addition, you can also mount the 322RS shutter release accessory. With its remote control electronic camera shutter release, the 322RC2 becomes the only photographic head available today that can put camera control within reach without having to move your hand from the head grip to the camera body.
