Manfrotto 808 RC4 Pro 3 Way Head + QR plates

I've been pondering on this for a while but I've decided I'd like to try and switch this for a decent ball head.

It's a bit of a beastie compared to the 804 head and suitable for a fairly hefty DSLR set up

Head weighs 1.4KG and supports 8KG

In addition to the dual bubbles - a nice feature worth mentioning is the fact that you can 'turn on' the springs so it has a cushioned motion preventing a heavy load from suddenly tipping when any handle is released.

I have 2 quick release RC4 plates which go with the head so you can have one on your camera and have one mounted toa lens for easy switching.

Excuse my Springer's bum shot !





Everything is in A1 condition so I'd be looking for 80 with the extra plates.

In terms of a trade - I'd consider something like 498RC2 Midi Ball Head but anything considered really.

Advertised elsewhere.

Cheers.
