    Manfrotto 509HD reviews

    509HD Video Head & 545GB Aluminum Tripod Pro Ground-Twin Kit 100 is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great bang for the buck I have the Sony FS-700, matte box, FF, etc and this tripod handles it nicely. It is light enough to cary around all day but not so light as to feel flimsy.The legs lock securely. The only thing keeping this from getting 5 stars is that the tilt lock and pan lock knobs are not very robust. When not locking the tilt or pan they are wobbly in the head. The variable friction is nice throughout the entire range and the counter balance is good as well. Beware when adjusting the counterbalance that the tilt is either locked or you have a hand on the camera as when between counterbalance settings the head goes to zero counterbalance allowing the camera to slam forward or backwards. I have shot with a lot of heads in my day, Miller, Sactler, O'Conner, and while those are all a bit more robust in the knob department, performance wise this Manfrotto holds up surprisingly well considering it is 1/6th the price. Would I use this for rental gear? No. But I take great care of my stuff and I believe this will last me a nice long time.
