The Manfrotto 528XB Heavy-Duty Tripod with 509HD Professional Video Head Kit from B&H pairs a two-section, single-stage aluminum & stainless-steel tripod with a pro video fluid head to form a camera support system that holds up to 28.7 lb and reaches a maximum height of 65.3".
The legs themselves hold up to 110 lb; so if you need extreme weight support for an alternative setup (for example, attaching a jib arm), the 528XB tripod has you covered. The 509HD head features four steps of counterbalance, an Advanced Balancing Recorder, and a long sliding plate to achieve precise balance with full-sized camcorders. The head also features a variable fluid drag system to control action & resistance for both its -60° to +90° tilt and its 360° pan.
Manfrotto 528XB Heavy Duty Tripod
With a maximum load capacity of 110 lbs, the Manfrotto 528XB Heavy Duty Tripod is built to handle really heavy loads, and ideal for supporting camera jib arms. Despite its obvious strength, however, a close inspection reveals that this tripod offers quite a bit of brains and good looks to go along with its brawn.
The 528XB incorporates a fully adjustable mid-level spreader, which features telescopic ratchet braces that click into place in each of the preset positions for faster deployment. It also features an industry-standard 100mm bowl to accept 100mm half-ball video heads, and reversible leg ends which have rubber feet as well as stainless-steel spikes, for use in virtually any environment.
Constructed from steel tubes and aluminum leg extensions, the 528XB utilizes a sturdy single-tube leg structure with an adjustable leg spread. The leg spread also incorporates a 30° locked position for faster set-up and greater strength.
100 mm Bowl
Industry standard 100mm bowl accepts 100 mm half-ball video heads and allows the user to level the head quickly and easily for smooth, accurate panoramic work. In addition, the built-in 100 mm claw ball allows for use of the tripod even with heads not equipped with a half-ball.
Incorporates a fully adjustable mid-level spreader, which features telescopic ratchet braces that click into place in each of the preset positions for faster deployment. The braces can be immediately set, allowing each leg to be individually positioned for maximum stability. The tripod's wing-nut style locking system further ensures its stability once setup is complete.
Reversible Leg Ends
The 528XB is designed to accommodate heavy loads in virtually any environment. This is evident in the reversible feet, which also have stainless steel spikes for use on uneven terrain.
