I had been using and old Bogen tripod from 30 years ago. This Manfrotto unit is simply amazing. The adjustments for moving are easy. I am using this with a Swarovski 95 mm spotting scope with attached Nikon D7200 camera. The weight of this setup was easily balanced by the sliding head.
I have just shot an industrial video with mySony HDR-AX2000 using this head. The movements are smooth, and I was able to set my resistance using the adjustment wheels to a just-right feel. I was on a scissors lift, about 40 feet in the air photographing workers performing their tasks.
Worth more than the price. Very sturdy, well constructed seems like it would hold a heavier camera mount if needed.The fluid pan takes some getting use to. You need to twist the head clockwise to tighten the resistance so the fluid pan will work correctly. This is a constant issue.
We have several previous model 055 with 501 heads. This new 055 with the 502 head is one pound heavier than the old 055/501 , at about 10.2 lbs with generic case and the manfrotto telescopic pan bar. But, the fluid action is smoother and the tripod slightly heavier duty.
I had been using a video head purchased years ago which began squeaking. After researching several models, I decided on the Manfrotto which bigger than I had imagined. I used it with my little Canon Vixia. I was concerned that it would not work with the lighter camera.
Le minimum pour faire de beau mouvement verticaux ou diagonaux ou de suivi.
réglage de résistance en tilt qui fait toute la différence avec la tête 500 A
l'attache rapide est au format standard pour la gamme photo, si vous êtes déjà possesseur de matériel manfrotto le gain de temps sur le terrain n'est pas négligeable pour passer sur un support différent
Le produit correspond parfaitement aux attentes d'utilisation pour un monopod, la qualité manfrotto au rendez-vous, les trois branches rétractables à la bases sont pratiques et solides, la rotule et légère et efficace avec un hybride ou FS5.
Il aurait été intéressant d'avoir un étui sur mesure vendu avec, pour un prix un peu plus élevé
I purchased this video head for several reasons.First, I had to replace a cheap one that was not a Manfrotto. Secondly, I am standardizing all of my tripods with Manfrotto so I need only 1 style of camera plate.
Excellent video fluid head, sooo smooth, adjustable drag, friction, good camera balance, solid construction like all manfrotto products. A little bit heavy, about 4pounds but still portable.
I am a professional videographer and photographer and just wanted to say that the 502 base head rocks! It is super smooth and the build is stellar. I use this for my Sony Z 150 all the time now. I am on happy customer.
