The Manfrotto MVH502A Fluid Head and MVT502AM Tripod with Carrying Bag 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 aluminum 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.

    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.

    Great Tripod, bag too small, no handles

    Tripod operates perfectly, the carrying bag is too narrow and doesnt hold the unit well. No carrying handles, only a strap.

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

      Was looking for a 3rd tripod to go along with my two older ones (Bogen and Satchler) which are great but at many time more than need. So purchase this Manfrotto head and legs set-up .... The head is nice however little disappointed in the legs feel flimsy...could be from what I am used to using.
      But for the price a descent beginner tripod....

            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.

                  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.
