The Manfrotto 222 Grip Action Ballhead is fast to set up and an easy to use tripod head. Just grip the handle and you can position your camera anywhere within 180° sphere. The very act of taking your hand away from the grip locks the head into position, which eliminates the extra step of having to tighten a knob or lever before being ready to shoot. The head is versatile, quick and easy to use as the tension of the ball can be adjusted to accommodate the load weight.
It’s supplied with a quick-release camera plate and a secondary safety lock together with a built-in bubble level and tension adjustment. Made from cast aluminum this is an ideal head for wedding or portrait photographers using 35mm cameras with short or medium focal length lenses.
We do not recommend this head for continuous tracking of moving subjects, because you must always grip the lever to release the ball and thus your hand would tire after prolonged use.
