        I use this for video and small carbon jib. Seems to hold the weight and very light. The upper allen is not tight on upper legs and allen wrench doesn't fit to tighten. Sweet tripod yet be nice if the parts were made to replace individually.

            Comments about Manfrotto MVT502AM Aluminum Telescopic Twin Leg Video Tripod:

            Looked for tripod legs for my older Manfrotto 501 video head.
            I found B&H's breakdown of the options organized and all the
            specs were clear. Better then Manfrotto site. Questions like can my head mount to this tripod.
            It is very light but sturdy. It holds a heavy dslr with big lens.
            I bought a small slider for it. Wouldnt put a huge rig on it.
            But would not look stupid with a smaller camcorder on it.
            The clamps to open and close much better then an older Manfrotto
            I have. It opens and closes so easily. The attached tiedown when it closes
            is attached and could be better but not big deal. Tom D

              I like the small folded size and lightweight, but the legs don't slide in/out smoothly...a little sticky and feels a little flimsy.

              Comments about Manfrotto MVT502AM Aluminum Telescopic Twin Leg Video Tripod:

              I have used this tripod with the 501 head on two jobs:1. A full day wedding2. A 3 day trip to Southern Mexico.Here's what I like about it. It's light. It fit in my checked luggage without the head.... I can easily carry it around with the camera and quickly set it up with the half ball to level. Then I tap the center connector with my knee and it folds up and I can carry the whole thing around even through tight doorways or a wedding reception with tight tables. Then I put it down, use the half ball to level and quickly get my next shot.I also like the levers for adjusting height. It's a lot faster and easier than turning nobs. I even used it with our slider. I don't know where the problem lies, but the slider sags when the camera is at the end. Our FS 100 may just be too heavy for the head. I don't know. I would not recommend this for heavy sliders or jibs. Go for a bigger setup. Other than that, I really like it and would recommend it to anyone.

                I bought this product for a wide range of video work. The Legs seem like they can support a good amount of weight but when extended to full capacity the connections aren't as strong as I wanted. They dont wabble or fall out of place, nothing this dramatic, but they're not like a good pair of single tube carbon fiber legs.
