Manfrotto 460MG
3D Magnesium Tripod Head (with RC2 Rapid Connect Plate)


Manfrotto – Making Tripods and Heads
Cast from lightweight magnesium, Manfrotto's 460MG head can be positioned in virtually any position to get the exact framing of the image.  The lock-system using spring-loaded conical joints allows greater flexibility than any other 3D head whether mounted on a tripod center column or on a lateral arm.  The rubber grip knobs provide finger tip control and won't poke you in the eye like conventional handles do.  Works well in combination with Manfrotto's Carbon Number One line for 35mm SLRs and medium format cameras.


  • Three separate axes of movement: panoramic rotation, front-back tilt and side tilt
  • Materials, design and construction techniques have been carefully selected to help save weight without sacrificing stability or strength
  • Lightweight magnesium is used for die-cast parts.  Magnesium has a density of 1.74g/cm3 as opposed to aluminum's 2.70g/cm3 - a 35% reduction.  Despite its lower weight, magnesium is more rigid than aluminum, and has the same strength per volume.
  • Because you can turn your camera through more than 90° with this head, positioning and framing is flexible even if uneven terrain means the tripod isn't perfectly level, or if you're shooting with the column inverted or (in the case of PRO tripods) mounted horizontally.
