The Manfrotto 229 3-Way, Pan-and-Tilt Head has a load capacity of 12 kg and can be attached to tripods or other support systems that feature a 3/8"-16 mount. It includes an integrated RC0 quick release cam lock and a 030-14 Quick Release Plate. RC0 compatible quick release plates such as the 030-14 can removed from the head by pulling the cam lock's spring-loaded lever, which also allows the plate to be instantly reattached.
Cameras or accessories that are compatible with a 1/4"-20 mount can be connected to the 030-14 Quick Release Plate, which measures 6 x 6 x 1 cm and has a rubberized, nonslip surface. The head can be rotated 360°, tilted 90° forwards or 25° backwards, as well as 30° sideways for portrait orientation. Each of these three movements function independently of each other, have dedicated control handles, and can be locked into place by twisting each corresponding handle's rubberized grip.
To promote fast, repeatable, and accurate device positioning, the 229 3-Way, Pan and Tilt Head also includes dedicated angle scales for its rotational and sideways tilt movements that are designed for easy visibility.
