Manfrotto, world leader in the photography, videography and imaging equipment and accessories industry, has built on the success of its 496 and 494 centre ball heads by redesigning its 492 and 492LCD heads and expanding its range with the 490 model. 

Models 492, 492LCD and 490 complement the lineup of Manfrotto centre ball heads dedicated to amateur photographers. 

492 and 492LCD

The 492 and 492LCD are small but powerful heads that are ideal for attaching a variety of accessories to enrich shots such as an LED light, a light reflector, a monitor for video recording or a compact microphone. These centre ball heads are designed and manufactured in Italy, in line with Manfrotto’s high standards of excellence. Their design is conceived to maximise ergonomics and convenience of use: despite their compact size they have a safety payload of 4kg for high versatility and power.

The new 492 and 492LCD models are dedicated to amateur photographers looking for a fast and easy framing experience. The MH492-BH SRP inc VAT is £54.95, the MH492LCD-BH is £64.95


The Manfrotto 490 centre ball head is the simplest head in the range. A very reliable tool, the 490 head is designed in Italy, with special attention paid to ergonomics and functionality: one single knob operates the entire head, making it extremely intuitive and easy to use. With a safety payload of 4kg, it is perfect for amateur photographers who need a quick, smart and simple head for their CSC or mirrorless camera. The MH490-BH SRP inc VAT is £44.95
