Manfrotto MVT502AM Video Tripod Kit w/ Fluid Video Head includes Carry Bag
The technical details behind this tripod
Manfrotto MVT502AM Video Tripod Kit w/ Fluid Video Head includes Carry Bag offers great features and value. It also features a fluid head with a wide platform to support the HDSLR form factor, and a 60mm half ball for quick leveling without adjusting the legs. The head supports a maximum weight load of 17.6 pounds and has a built-in, pre-set spring-loaded counterbalance of 5.3 pounds. It features a tilt range of -70°/+90° and provides a panning rotation of 360°. The head also features a side lock system for the sliding quick release plate, a pan handle, and an integrated bubble level. The legs feature non-removable feet suitable for exteriors and interiors, and are gentle on delicate floors. The included padded carry bag makes transporting your tripod and head simple and easy. The two-stage tripod features a 75mm bowl and includes a 75 to 60mm adapter for the MVH500A head. The legs are individually adjustable and feature a mid-level spreader for stability on uneven ground. The minimum height of the tripod and head is just over two feet, for getting low angle shots, and the maximum height is just over five feet.
The legs are constructed out of oval aluminum tubes for strength and durability. Each leg can be independently raised and lowered when required. The tripod legs can support over 33 pounds, easily carrying the weight of the fluid head and camera. The closed length (without fluid head) is just over two feet, has a height range of 22.4 to 56.5 inches, and weighs only 4.3 pounds. Offering a 75mm bowl for attaching a fluid head, a 75 to 60mm adapter is included for use with the MVH500A head.
The padded carry bag keeps your tripod and head together during transport or storage.
The head pans through 360 degrees, permitting you to take long panoramic shots or spin the camera around on the head. The head features a tilt range of 90 degrees forward and 70 degrees back, allowing you to tilt the camera straight down, and tilt it almost straight up. Professional fluid cartridges provide fixed fluid drag in both the pan and tilt axes. The spring-loaded counterbalance is fixed at 5.3 pounds; however, the head supports 17.6 pounds, and the counterbalance will still provide assistance when using camera setups heavier than 5.3 pounds. The 60mm half ball allows you to quickly level the head without having to readjust the legs. It also makes it simpler to create Dutch angle shots without dangerously unbalancing the tripod. The wide camera platform provides support for DSLR cameras, making this head suitable for both camcorders and DSLR cameras.
