This B&H Kit includes a Manfrotto MVH500AH Flat Base Fluid Head, 055XB Tripod Legs and a Padded Carrying Case for storage and transport. This kit is assembled to provide you a ready-to-go tripod package for shooting with available HDSLRs and compact camcorders. The fluid head is lightweight at just over 2 pounds, with professional features found in larger heads. It supports up to 11 pounds of camera and accessories. The head features a side lock mounting system, which combines the ease of a quick release system with the balance adjustment of a sliding baseplate system. The included, long, sliding balance plate provides extra balancing length compared to the standard length plate.
The Manfrotto 055XB tripod legs support 15.4 pounds, which will support the weight of the fluid head and up to 11 pounds of camera and accessories (the load capacity of the fluid head) with weight to spare. The legs feature a 3-facetted center column designed to counteract twist and rotation. Extending the legs and center column fully, provides just under 6 feet of height. The legs are independently adjustable with independent leg spread, with pre-set leg angles, which is useful when shooting on uneven terrain, stairs, or in cramped locations. The rubber feet provide a sure grip indoors and out, and the flip locks make adjusting the leg length a quick process. The included padded tripod case provides you an easy way to store, protect, and transport your tripod to and from shoots.
