The Manfrotto 502HD Pro Video Head & 055XB Tripod Kit from B&H Photo gives you a complete studio camera support set-up. The included 055X tripod has a maximum working height of 70" and a minimum working height of just 2.8" by using the built-in low angle adapter. It also features lever-type leg locks and leg warmers. It's ideal for use with 35mm and light medium format photographic cameras, and digital or conventional type video camcorders.
The 502HD video head has a flat base with a 3/8"-16 connection, with sturdy construction and featuring Manfrotto's patented bridging technology. The 502HD is designed for executing cinematic moves with compact camcorders and DSLR video cameras. Weight capacity is 12.2 lb and counterbalance supports 8.8 lb. The balance plate's 3.27" range allows you to correct for uneven payloads that might be due to matte boxes or exotic DSLR rig configurations. The bridging technology ensures that the pan friction control is intuitive and easy to set, but also protected against knocks. There are independent locks for pan and tilt, and drag for both is selectable in a continuous range from zero to the max level.
A durable padded carrying bag is included.
