The 055XB provides speedy set up coupled with added security via quick-action, lever-type leg locks, low-angle adapter and leg warmers. It is ideal for use with 35mm and light medium-format photographic cameras, along with digital or conventional type video camcorders.
The 501HDV Pro Video Head features improved drag in both axes and switchable counterbalance for the latest ultralight high-definition camcorders. A sliding camera plate helps balance uneven payloads due to outboard batteries or matte boxes, while dual rosettes permit left- or two-handed pan arm configurations. A rear-mounted spirit level facilitates rapid setups.
