    With the mantona Onyx series, you are purchasing ball heads of the highest quality and functionality at an attractive price. These ball heads made from aluminium feature excellent workmanship and high-quality controls, and are comfortable to use. Precision is combined with low weight and a high load bearing capacity.

    Smooth controls and high-quality craftsmanship
    The Onyx series has excellent functionality thanks to the particularly pleasant controls and practical features. All the control buttons and, of course, the ball head housing are made from black, anodised, CNC-machined aluminium. The workmanship for Onyx is very good and, in terms of quality, far removed from the simple 08/15 entry-level ball heads. Everything about this ball head operates with precision, smoothly and pleasantly gently.

    The ball head, despite its load bearing capacity of 12 kg, offers very smooth and sleek operation. The Onyx 12 ball head incl. quick-release plate weighs only 366 g.

    High technical features
    In addition to the comfortable handling, this ball head has high technical and mechanical fundamentals. The 36-mm ball of the Onyx 12 offers clean cushioning and is precision-made. In conjunction with the excellently made housing and integrated mechanics, this ball head is guaranteed to last a long time.

    Quality features of the highest standard
    The Onyx 12 ball head has a wide range of useful features of the highest quality. The quick-release plate is Arca-Swiss compatible, and scaling on the ball head plate and quick-release plate mean you can orient your equipment with precision. Of course, there is also a safety device for the quick-release plate. The 1/4-inch fixation screw for the camera can be attached simply with a D-ring without any extra tools. The high-quality features are rounded off by two bubble levels and a spirit level. Smooth cushioning and a precise panorama scale ensure that panning will be smooth and controlled.

    The wide range of excellent features make the ball heads in the Onyx series a very pleasant and high-performance assistant for amateur and professional photographers.

    Ideal for:
    • For DSLR, mirrorless and system cameras, compact cameras, actioncams and smartphones (with a separate mount)
    • Indoor and outdoor use
    • For ambitious amateur and professional photographers
