B&H # TRT1 MFR # T1

The T1 Short Tripod from Triad-Orbit is designed to accommodate applications that call for low mic placements such as on drums, guitar amps, and more.

Each leg of the stand's base has four ratcheted positions that provide up to 65° range of movement. This allows the T1 to stand on uneven surfaces and allows for stacking, which makes storage easier.

The T1 is also equipped with an IO quick-change coupling system to mate with IO-equipped hardware. This is great for quickly changing microphones and booms without having to unscrew anything.

The TVC-33S from Really Right Stuff is the "Short" version of the traditional TVC-33 model. It has been designed for photographers looking for a smaller footprint while traveling and a more stable construction when in use. Although it's reduced size limits its maximum height, it does reduce its center of gravity, minimizing vibration and enhancing rigidity.

Constructed from Really Right Stuff's patented carbon fiber weave, the TVC-33S weighs in at 3.7 lb and can safely support up to 50 lb. Its 3-section leg design allows the tripod to extend to a maximum height of 50.8" and lower down to a minimum working height of just 3.9".

Quick set-up and break-down is facilitated by easy-to-use twist locks, which require just a quarter rotation to unlock and re-lock each leg section. This design also helps to maintain the tripod's slim folded silhouette. Additionally, when traveling with or storing the tripod, the entire support can fold down to just 22.8" in length, small enough to travel or hike with.

Each leg is attached to the tripod's collar via an offset leg joint that helps to evenly distribute heavy loads and maintain the tripod's rigidity. The joints and collar itself are constructed of lightweight anodized aluminum which, aside from lending inherent strength to the tripod, also provides it with natural wear and corrosion resistance. Each one of the three leg joints also features a ratcheting angle stop that automatically locks into place as the legs are folded downward into "standard" position.

The TVC-33S's feet are a unique teardrop shape that prevents the leg sections from touching the ground at even the lowest height settings and the most unusual angles. Their rubber exterior provides a non-slip grip on nearly any surface and can be used both indoors and outdoors without concern. For users wishing to change the native rubber feet to metal "all-terrain" spikes, a set of metal spikes are available separately.

B&H # MAMVH502AH MFR # MVH502AH

The Manfrotto 502AH Pro Video Head with Flat Base is an affordable yet remarkably fully featured professional head that represents an advance over the popular 501HDV, with sturdier construction and featuring Manfrotto's patented bridging technology (inherited from the 509 and 504 heads). This head is designed for executing cinematic moves with compact camcorders and DSLR video cameras. The 502AH comes in two versions—the "AH" flat-base version such as this, and the "A" ball base version which is separately available.

The weight capacity is 15.4 lb and counterbalance supports 8.8 lb. The balance plate's 3.27" range allows you to correct for uneven payloads due to matte boxes or 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. This allows you to operate the head in a confident, smooth manner using the included pan bar.

"5 Stars...love it!...I loved this head, I work in video and had never held a head like this, it is very stable, the movement is really fluid, and the best is adjustable, I can make smooth or fast panning, is the best investment I've made, I I use it with my Canon 7D and my Blacmagic 2.5k...3: The counterbalance spring is not adjustable, so I won't rant on it to much, but for my DSLR setup, it was still too strong and I had to keep the tilt tension tighter than I wanted to in order to hold it where I wanted it.With all that in mind, for $ this is a really nice head."

"Love it...Love it....Nowhere close to my Really Right Stuff or Arca Swiss heads and I will miss the flip lever release but considering I was leaving the good tripod and ball head at home this is great....the extra features I didn't know about are that the quick release works with the peak design bases as well and the head removes so I can put it on another base that I like but doesn't have a good head adjustment on it (pakpod)."

"Love It...Not bad!...I use this with my manfrotto 055xb tripod and it works great, I have had a lot of tripods and tripod heads, but they were never this quantity, it is very well built and you can feel the quality of the ball head,...I was honestly shocked it held us that weight so well however I would not advise getting this head for video unless your doing time lapses or need a stationary setup."

The Magnus VT-4000 Tripod System with Fluid Head is a stable, sturdy video tripod made from anodized aluminum that can support loads up to 8.8 lb. Overall, this tripod offers many features usually only found on more expensive models. The two-way fluid head provides smooth operation, and features a half-ball mount with a diameter of 65mm, with left and right pan bar mounts. It comes supplied with one pan bar. In addition, unlike most other heads in its class, all the head controls are positioned on the left side of the head, which leaves your right hand free for the panning handle.

Its 2-stage leg design allows you to adjust the height of the tripod from 27.6" to 59". A middle spreader and passive counterbalance provide enhanced stability to the entire system. The VT-4000 also has separate pan and tilt locks, and a bubble level for precision leveling. The fixed counter-balance spring incorporated in the head will help with smoother tilt movements.

Its provided quick release plate features a standard 1/4"-20 mounting screw with a video pin, and has a sliding range of +20/-25mm - to enable travel capabilities - essential in balancing uneven configurations. The head's tilt angle is adjustable from +90° to -60°.

"Good Deal...Great head...I spent many years shooting on Vinten and Sachtler tripods and really liked the features and reliability of those brands.When it came time to shop for gear that I could donate to our church's fledgling video department I took a look at the gear I used to use but simply couldn't afford it....However, I was so confident that my camera would not come off the tripod that I set the timer on the camera to 10 seconds, pressed the focus button, and lifted the tripod onto the jersey barrier so the view wound not be obstructed by the fence, and held the tripod steady against the fence ."

The Wimberley WH-200 Gimbal Tripod Head II with Quick Release Base is a gimbal-type tripod head that incorporates an elevated tilt mechanism and adjustable platform to make the camera/lens' center of gravity and tilt axis of the head be perfectly aligned.

Things once thought of as impossible with a ball head are nothing short of mundane with a Wimberley, because a weightless camera/lens combo (even a 600mm f/4 w/ large body) can literally be controlled with one finger. Point the rig where you want and take the hand away, and it stays exactly where you put it.

The Version II head is more compact and lightweight, features a redesigned panning base, "soft-touch" knobs, and includes a built-in Arca-type compatible quick release base. An Arca-type quick release plate is required and is available separately.

"Love it...Love it....To set up I first tighten to adjust the tension for easy side to side movement and then thighten the up and down movement so that it will not fall forward or backward banging my expensive lens and camera on the mount or tripod....I cant compare it because is the only one I have and use, but I am shure it is one of the best products you can have in your hands, since you touch it for the first time you love it."
