        Comments about Manfrotto 529 Hi Hat with 100mm Bowl:

        One of my shooters asked for a small tripod for shooting the blooming of flowers. Told her she was nuts and would look for one at NAB. In the mean time just use a sand bag. While at the John Lennon Experience bus at NAB I noticed this small tripod. Perfect for what my shooter wanted. It gets way down almost to ground level and supports a full size ENG camera. Plus the cost fits nicely into my equipment budget. My shooter loves it but now says it is heavy. Told her to hit the gym and do some free weights.

          This is the perfect Hi-Hat. I can be on my 509 sticks, simply screw off the head and transfer it on to the Hi-Hat extremely fast. Would buy again and again.

              Comments about Manfrotto 529 Hi Hat with 100mm Bowl:

              Honestly, this is one of the few Manfrotto Products that I love, but it is really solidly built, and the fact that it folds (making it more compact for travelling), is huge to me. I use this with RED cameras, Canon Cinema Cameras, Sony Cameras, and it works like a charm. Easy to carry. And bonus points that it looks like a transformer, which my son likes.

              We use this for a range of cameras from the FS100 to the RED one and Varicam. Very tough, versatile and it looks great. The leg clips are the only weak spot and have been on most manfrotto legs for years. Excellent value.

                        I purchased this Hi Hat for a portable alternative to carrying around a large tripod when traveling. Size wise it's fantastic. It folds up nicely, it's sturdy, and it works well. However, the little thing is super heavy for it's size. This little guy with head is like 11 pounds! It weights the same as my 10ft carbon fibre sticks! Wow! Otherwise I like it and I would recommend it.

                              Helpful product. I've had a chance to use it once in the field and it's helped secure some gorgeous shots. It's a gorgeous little piece and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone interested in some low angle shots. Much better than trying to make do without it. Nice steady image, and it's small and light weight - easily fits into tiny areas where sticks might not work.

                                  Great for those low angle shots. No more using a shot bag.

                                    Essential for low angle shooting, this hi-hat is top-quality built and designed, and pairs with many other accessories and all your 100mm bowl fluid heads. The holes at the end of the legs are in fact really useful for a stable connection onto light dollies or skaters like the omni-tracker.
