The Manfrotto MVH502A Fluid Head and MVT502AM Tripod with Carrying Bag (MVK502AM-1) is a lightweight tripod system designed for use with camcorders and HDSLR cameras. The system features the MVH502A 75mm half ball professional video head, and the telescopic aluminium twin-tube MVT502AM tripod. A padded carrying case is included for transport and storage.
The MVH502A Pro Video Head is a professional fluid head with a 75mm half ball tripod mount. The head has a spring-loaded counterbalance system which supports up to 3.8 kgs, while the head has a payload capacity of 6.7 kgs. There are independent locks for pan and tilt, with drag continuously adjustable for both.
The MVT502AM video tripod is a lightweight 2-stage, aluminium twin-tube video tripod. It features telescopic aluminium legs for compactness and reduced weight, and its ellipse-profile tubing with redesigned leg locking collars and a mid-level spreader give it added levels of rigidity and stability. The tripod's rubber feet improve grip on all floor and ground surfaces.
The Manfrotto 502A Pro Video Head with 75mm Half Ball is an affordable yet remarkably full-featured professional head that represents an advance over the popular 501HDV, with sturdier construction and a half ball for precise levelling on a corresponding tripod. The 502A comes in two versions—the "A" ball-base version such as this one, and the "AH" flat-base version which is separately available.
Featuring Manfrotto's patented bridging technology (inherited from the 509 and 504 heads), the 502A is designed for executing cinematic moves with compact camcorders and DSLR video cameras. The weight limit is 6.7 kgs and counterbalance supports up to 3.8 kgs. The balance plate's 3.27" range allows you to correct for uneven payloads that might be due to matte boxes or exotic DSLR rig configurations
The bridging technology ensures that the pan friction control is intuitive and easy to set, but also protected against knocks. There are independent locks for pan and tilt, and drag for both is selectable in a continuous range from zero to the max level. This allows you to operate the head in a confident, smooth manner using the included pan bar
Manfrotto's MVT502AM Aluminum Telescopic Twin Leg Video Tripod is lightweight support designed for DSLRs, camcorders and light video cameras. The telescopic twin-leg structure and ellipse-profile aluminium tubes provide rigid and secure support, along with leg locking collars, first-stage spreader and high-grip rubber feet. The 2-stage/3-section MVT502AM has a 75mm bowl (with a 60 mm adapter) for compatibility with professional video heads.
