This B&H Kit
includes a Manfrotto MVH500AH Flat Base Fluid Head, 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 190XPROL legs allow you to easily change the orientation of the center column from vertical to horizontal without disassembling the tripod. This feature can be useful for setting up shots that require the camera to point straight down, which the fluid head cannot accomplish on its own. The legs support 11 pounds, which will support the weight of the fluid head and just under 9 pounds of camera and accessories. The legs feature a center column, and extending the legs and center column fully, provides over 5.3 feet of height. The center column features a 3-facetted design to counteract twist and rotation. The legs are independently adjustable with independent leg spread, and pre-set leg angles, which is useful when shooting on uneven terrain, stairs, or in cramped locations. The flip locks on the legs feature a tension adjustment so you can set the tightness to your preference. The adjustability also allows you to adjust the tension, keeping your legs from slipping, even as the locks wear over time. Long, padded, foam grips on 2 of the legs cushion your grip and insulate your hands when working with the tripod in the extremes of temperature. The legs feature rubber feet, which provide a sure grip indoors and out. The included padded tripod case provides you an easy way to store, protect, and transport your tripod to and from shoots.
