Could somebody tell me where to find specifications about Manfrotto 268 ball head? Thanks, Carlos
Is there a 268? I think there's a 468 and that there used to be a 168. Have you tried the Manfrotto and Bogen web-sites? If it isn't on those there may not be one.
David, there is a 268 ball head. I've been at manfrotto's web but the 268 doesnt appear betwen their actual products. I know its load capacity is 14kg, but I want to to know its weigh.. Thanks, Carlos
Yes there is a 268 Super Ball Head (Bogen 3038). Well ... there used to be. It is discontinued now. According to an old Manfrotto product brochure I have: 16cm high, 1.54kg mass, supports up to 12kg. Takes the Manfrotto hexagonal release plates. I used to own one. It is big ball head, but I didn't find the tension control to be very smooth (a common flaw with older Manfrotto ballheads). http://www.bogenimaging.us/product/templates/itemalone.php3?itemid=268 The closest current production equivalent is the 490RC4. http://www.bogenimaging.us/product/templates/templates.php3?sectionid=8&itemid=1958
Thanks Michael, you are right 1.54kg for the old 268 and 1.12 for the new 490RC4 Regardless this, what do you think about using this ball head as a 3 way head, for landscapes? Would it be very difficult to adjust it fast and precise? Thanks, Carlos
