      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    A tripod is not only essential for shooting with slow shutter speeds and long exposures, but also provides stability against downward and horizontal forces and movements. So get this tripod ball head from Manfrotto and shoot anything from landscape to architectural and environmental portraits.

    Load Capacity

    The load capacity of this tripod ball head is up to 8kg. So it could be a great choice for beginners, or for advanced photographers who are looking for a lightweight and versatile camera support.


    This tripod ball head is made of aluminium, so it is sturdy, durable and can be your companion for years to come. 

    Quick Release

    This tripod ball head features a 200PL-14 quick release plate that securely locks the camera position using a screw clamp-type fitting. This quick release system also makes it easy to attach or remove the camera from the tripod.

    A perfect match with 190XPROB

    This was my first purchase from Flipkart. As I have read in multiple reviews earlier, shipping was fast. Ordered on Thursday late night, expected date was Monday, delivered on Saturday.

    Now on the product itself, I purchased it to go with a Manfrotto 190XPROB, to support a 60D with 24-105mm f4L for the time being. On this combination, I did not observe any noticeable drooping post adjustment. I admit, I didn't test for it thoroughly. I was mostly on the wider side of the focal length.

    Does what it's meant for

    Bang on the buck. It delivers what it is meant for. Easy to use, decent weight (not too heavy or light). You can easily attach your camera(DSLR) to this and work through the 360 degrees panning. Both landscape and portrait modes are easy to work with.i shoot wildlife and had tough time to work with( my 1st time) with manfrotto tripod & the head coz overall system was heavy but saying this it will take less time to get adjusted as it holds camera & lens pretty nicely(Nikon D7100+70-300mm lens).

    Sturdy Build, Smooth movements

    Sturdy build - feels solid in hand and one can rely on 498RC2 with all camera and lens weight.
    Movement is smooth.
    Friction knob helps a lot.
    Panning in not great, but does the job. Treat it as add-on.
    I'm using it with my 055XPROB - seems best combo!

    Good to have : Optional panning handle would be great add on...
