Manfrotto 488RC4 Ballhead

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Manfrotto 488RC4 Ballhead

Asking Price
79.00 USD

Item Location
AZ (United States)

Item Description
Up for sale is a nice Manfrotto ballhead that has served me well over the course of the past few years. It's in excellent condition both mechanically and cosmetically with only small signs of use. A great choice if you're looking for a sturdy setup that can bear some weight.

Included is the ballhead itself plus a RC4 plate with a standard tripod mount, as pictured.

More info from Manfrotto:

QuoteQuote:
The Manfrotto 488RC4 Midi Ball Head features a strong die-cast aluminum housing plus an exceptionally hard, tough, phenolic resin ball that moves smoothly into position.

The 488 features a double-groove for rapid side-to-side movement, and a separate fast-action ratchet lever for 360° pan and easy to grip locking knob for +90°-90° tilt movements. Suitable for Medium format cameras, or any 35mm or Digital SLR camera system.

All ball heads fit any Bogen tripod, or any tripod with 3/8"-16 (Euro) thread.

Same as the 488 but equipped with a Rapid Connect 4 (quick release) system.

I could not figure out if this has a fine adjustment tension knob. I am sick today so my reading comprehension may be suffering.

I wouldn't call it fine adjustment, but the big knob does give you a good amount of control before the ballhead loosens completely and moves freely.

The quick release plate looks different than what I'm used to on Manfrotto - do the normal one's fit also?

This is the plate that's included:
Manfrotto 410PL Quick Release Plate - for RC4 Quick 410PL B&H

It's the original one that came with the head.

I don't believe so. There are other manfrotto heads that are, however, i.e.
Manfrotto MHXPRO-BHQ6 XPRO Ball Head with Top Lock MHXPRO-BHQ6

I think the question was : Is it also compatible with theses QR plates ? :
Manfrotto 200PL Quick Release Plate with 1/4"-20 200PL B&H

That's a RC2 plate, so it wouldn't be compatible. This is a RC4 head.
