  • Manfrotto 502AH Pro Video Head with Flat Base

    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.

    Pan drag and tilt drag are continuously adjustable from 0 (no drag) to the maximum level
    Sliding quick release plate secured by secondary safety system

Manfrotto 502AH reviews

502AH Video Head, 028B Triman Tripod, and Padded Bag Kit is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Awesome Head, Terrible legs!! The 502 head from manfrotto is an great head and is far more advanced and worth your coin then the 501, I love it. On the other hand these particular legs are very easily the worst legs I have used for video work. there is just no other way to level the tripod without reaching down and adjusting the knobs. no individual leg tilt adjustment!! This might work for simple things where the camera will stay in the same place but as soon as you move it you will need to re-adjust the legs. bottom line.. go will a bowl head tripod to make the most out of your time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is top of the line This kit is insane!!! The bag that comes with it is large and fits both the head and the tripod.
