The Manfrotto XPRO Q6 ball head is made out of lightweight, strong magnesium alloy, offering a good strength to weight ratio. Able to support up to 10kg of gear, the Q6 features a Top Lock quick release system with an Arca-Swiss clamp and plate that lets you mount your camera from above, rather than sliding it in from the side. Separate 360° panning, friction, and ball locking controls allow you to adjust your framing precisely so you can line up the perfect shot.

Smooth Pan and Tilt Movements

The Manfrotto XPRO Q6 ball head provides smooth 360° panning with adjustable friction for a truly precise feel, while the printed panning scale makes positioning easy to find and repeat. The large, separate levers offer intuitive control over pan, ball, and friction for easy adjustment on the fly.

Top Lock Quick Release System

An Arca-Swiss clamp and plate form a Top Lock quick release system. This allows you to drop your camera in from above and lock it in place easily. A reliable safety lock mechanism engages as soon as the plate is in the clamp, ensuring your gear stays securely in place even while you’re on the move.

Strong, Light, and Easy to Balance

Made from lightweight, strong magnesium alloy, the Manfrotto Q6 Ballhead weighs only 520g, but can support up to 15kg of gear, perfect for DSLR cameras and accessories. The head features 2 bubble levels for easy and accurate balancing.
