          Comments about Manfrotto MVH502A Fluid Head and MVT502AM Tripod with Carrying Bag:

          I am a freelance videographer, and use this tripod for sports, festivals, and other events. The actions is very smooth, and the tripod is very stable. The ergonomics are not perfect, as the tilt drag knob and tilt lock are on opposite sides. My only other complaint is that the bag it comes with is too small once you put the arm onto the head.

              Comments about Manfrotto MVH502A Fluid Head and MVT502AM Tripod with Carrying Bag:

              I'm an event/corporate videographer. I shoot with a full-sized Sony NX-5U. This head is perfect for subtly changing pans & tilts. I especially like adjusting the angle & simply taking my hands off the camera. It stays securely where I left it, very smooth, very stable. The locking knob on the right took some practice but worth it. I'm seriously considering buying another one soon before the rebate ends.

                Comments about Manfrotto MVH502A Fluid Head and MVT502AM Tripod with Carrying Bag:

                I picked up this unit because I wanted a tripod that would work well with my DSLR for video. I was specifically looking for very smooth pan and tilt operations and I have not been disappointed. This tripod is silky smooth and has an amazing range of adjustment. The only complaint I have is minor. It can be difficult to get back in the bag sometimes if it is not oriented just right.
