Review of the Manfrotto 804RC2 Pan Tilt

Manufacturer: Manfrotto
Model: 804RC2 Pan Tilt
Price: £60

The Manfrotto 804RC2 is a three-way tripod head sculpted in lightweight technical polymer. In addition to its triple-plane mechanics, it incorporates a spirit level and a fixed counterbalance spring on the tilt motion to help support kit loads of up to 4kg. The 804RC2 undertakes its panning and tilting duties ably, and feels durable enough to withstand everyday wear and tear as well as the demands placed by more substantial enthusiast cameras. Tilting movements could be smoother and locking more precise, but overall the 804RC2 is a solid, reliable investment.


Solid, workhorse tripod at a fair price

Light weight yet dependable
