question

I just purchased the MVH502A. A review shows you can screw the 3/8-16 screw into the side. Of course I use that one. Any place to screw the 1/4-20 screw? Both sides only seem to fit the 3/8-16.
Asked by: Stephen S.
If you wanted to connect a product with a 1/4 to one of the 3/8 threadings on the side of this tripod you could look in to a reducer bushing. B&H number OB1039 is the Oben 3/8 -16 to 1/4 -20 Reducer Bushing and is a good choice for this function.

question

Can take this head and use it on a slider? Does it disconnect from the part that fits in the bowl?
Asked by: Jim H.
Yes to both your questions. Just to let you know if I had to do this over again I would not buy this tripod. It is too light weight and there is movement in the plastic top bowl that the head mounts too. It twists and translates into my video footage if I'm not careful in moving the fluid head. Next I will buy a carbon fiber tripod to get the lightweight design but the strength of a full aluminum tripod. The bag is a tight fit with the head installed on the bowl.

question

Is this tripod suitable to use with the Cinevate Inc 24 Duzi Camera Slider? Ill be shooting on a canon 6D. If not which manfrotto tripod is best?
Asked by: Anonymous
The MVH502A Fluid Head and MVT502AM Tripod I think is an excellent choice. It actually has more capacity then needed for the job. However, having that extra capacity I find to be reassuring insurance in avoiding a tip over. This combination would be safe up to about 32 as well with that camera. Over that distance, we recommend a second stand or tripod. Not only for safety but for solid, stable support.

question

I have a Manfrotto MVM 500A Monopod. Will the baseplate of that fluid head be interchangeable with this tripod's fluid head?
Asked by: Jane W.
Yes, the Manfrotto 500PLONG plate is compatible on the Manfrotto 502 head. Below is a link of which Manfrotto QR plates are compatible with which heads. <a href= http://www.fullcompass.com/common/files/21984-Manfrotto_Video_Plates_Compatibility_Chart.pdf target= _blank >http://www.fullcompass.com/common/files/21984-Manfrotto_Video_Plates_Compatibility_Chart.pdf</a>
