  • Item description

    Maximum usability thanks to user-friendly operation
    As the link between tripod and camera, the ball head has an important role to play, ensuring that cameras and other photographic equipment is securely held in place. Making silky-smooth movements and quick format changes as easy as 1-2-3. A ball head offers the flexibility that you need in your day-to-day shooting work.


    While the mantona Scout L ball head is strongly recommended for use on the mantona Scout tripod (and is also factory-fitted on this tripod as standard), it can of course also be used on other photographic or lighting tripods. The mantona Scout ball head is supplied with a quick release plate fitted as standard. Additional quick release plates – very useful to have in the field – are separately available from mantona (part number 18004).


    Both the quick release plate and the ball head can also be combined with release plates from other manufacturers (e.g. Manfrotto 200PL). This means you can leave your quick release plates attached to your photographic gear and just click your camera (e.g.) into the ball head. Accordingly, this makes the mantona Scout L ball head the perfect choice for use with digital, DSLR, compact or DSLM cameras, and as a universal ball head for attaching photographic equipment.


    Lightweight, rugged and versatile
    Lightweight and robust, the mantona Scout L ball head holds up to 5 kg of gear. It is equipped with a friction-based lock-and-release lever for operating the ball head. The ball head also features two U-shaped recesses for quick-as-a-flash format changeovers. The mantona Scout ball head has a height of 90 mm, and tips the scales at 289 g, including its standard quick release plate. The quick release plate is slotted into place quickly and easily from the side or the top. A quick-action lock with a lever-and-clip mechanism locks your camera safely into place and reliably prevents the plate accidentally working itself loose.


    The quick release plate is rubber-coated to ensure a stable, snug fit for your camera. The quick release plate is made of precisely-machined aluminium and comes with a 1/4-inch mounting screw. The ball head itself features a 3/8-inch threaded hole on the base for mounting onto any industry-standard tripod. Tripods with a 1/4-inch mount can naturally be used if desired, simply by purchasing a separately available 3/8- to 1/4-inch thread adapter.
