Compatible to 050 and 468 Series Ball Heads

The Manfrotto MSQ6 Quick Release Adapter system is designed to fit 050 and 468 series Manfrotto Ball Heads. This is a replacement or optional upgrade part which allows you to use all your compatible Arca Style Quick release plates for greater precision and control on your camera's position.

Q6 Top Lock Release system

MSQ6 Quick release Adapter features Q6 Top Lock Release System where instead of sliding an Arca Swiss type plate into the position, you can attach it right from top. The pin placed on the adapter gets depressed and instantly locks the plate in jaws allowing you lateral movement of only 1-1/4'. The improved mechanism makes the operation quick and easy.

Includes Arca Swiss Plate

A rugged Arca Swiss Plate is also included. It features a 1/4" -20 camera screw for compatibility with most cameras and a convenient fold-away D-ring for fast, confidence inspiring attachment to you camera base.

3 Bubble Levels

3 bubble levels help you keep the camera aligned perfectly. You can use your camera in landscape or portrait position whichever required and aim for the perfect composition without depending on image cropping or rotation after the shoot.

Aluminium Construction

The Quick Release Adapter and MSQ6PL quick release plate are both made from Aluminium, making it light and strong so that it does not wear out easily, even with everyday use. Its black finish is similar to the rest of your Manfrotto heads and tripods, giving it a subtle, professional look that avoids any unnecessary attention.
