Manfrotto 055X Overview

The Manfrotto 055XB Tripod with 128RC Fluid Head is a B&H Kit that combines a lightweight head with quick-action tripod legs. Ideal for use with small to mid-size camcorders and DSLRs, this kit will get you in and out with a minimum of fuss, letting you find your shots quickly and efficiently.

Fluid Head
The 128RC micro fluid head is a lightweight fluid-effect head that features an adjustable pan bar and quick release camera plate with secondary security--ideal for cameras weighing up to 8.8 lbs (4kg). It has smooth fluid movement, plus separate pan and tilt locks.
Tripod Legs
The Bogen/Manfrotto 055XB tripod builds on the success of the 3011/3021 series, but has been redesigned to offer even better ergonomics of the leg-angle release mechanism as well as improved quick-action leg locks. While it can reach a maximum working height of 70" (178cm), it can also be used as low as 2.8" (7cm) by using the low-angle adapter built in to the center column.

question

I have just bought the MVH502AH video head and 055XB legs for film work using a DSLR and a range of lenses including a 70-200 telephoto. If I want to switch between film and stills, is it recommended to attach the video head to a ball (what size?) or something else? Cheers.
Asked by: Anonymous
It is certainly possible to take the MVH502AH head off of this tripod and replace it with a photography style ballhead. We have a wide variety of those to choose from.http://bhpho.to/2fDfYOqKeep in mind that it is not instant to go from one head to another and if you are constantly switching heads you may eventually strip or wear down the screw/threading. You may be better served to purchase a 2nd tripod specifically for photography, which we also have a wide variety of.http://bhpho.to/2eUCi4q
