question

Any recommendations on what half bowl to purchase with these sticks?
Asked by: Michael
We believe you are asking for a half ball tripod head. If so, it does of course matter what camera you are using and what type of video work you will be doing. Here are two on the affordable side of the tripod range. Manfrotto 504HD Fluid Video Head B&H # MA504HD and the Libec RH25D Fluid Head B&H # LIRH25D. The MA504HD is hugely popular while the Libec is simply no nonsense quality. On the heavier side, you can consider then Manfrotto 509HD Professional Video Head B&H # MA509HD for a nice match of head and tripod or the VariZoom VZFH100 Fluid Head (100mm) B&H # VAVZFH100 which has a very good review.

question

Is it possible to use this tripod with a photo head? I'd like to purchase this for both video and photo use. I would use the 504HD for video work, then swap it out for a photo head. Is there any way to adapt this tripod for a photo head? Thank you!
Asked by: Hatef Y.
You certainly can use this tripod with a photo head. Since the 536 has a 75mm bowl on top, you will need an adapter. This will adapt from the bowl to a flat base with a 3/8 -16 screw for mounting the photo head. Manfrotto 520BALLSH 75mm Short Half-Ball B&H # MA520BSH.

question

How low can the legs go off the ground?
Asked by: Antonio
You could use the Manfrotto 165 On-Ground Tripod Spreader (B&H #MA165) or a 181 Folding Auto Dolly (B&H #MA181) to get the tripod legs off of the ground. If this is not the kind of product you had in mind feel free to email us directly at [email protected] and we can see what other solutions there are for you.

Sorry, the 536 Carbon Fiber Video Tripod since it has a bowl top cannot accept the Manfrotto 556B Leveling Center Column. So that we may be of further assistance with your application, please email us provideo@<a href= http://bhphoto.com target= _blank >bhphoto.com.</a>
