The 525MVB lightweight 2-stage professional video tripod is constructed of lightweight aluminum alloy and high-strength plastic composite materials which yield a 30% weight savings over conventional designs. This three-section tripod has two stages with fast-action locks and a convenient 75mm receiver for rapid setup and leveling. Used in conjunction with the included ground-level spreader, delicate floor surfaces are protected from the spiked feet, which are normally used in soft, unstable footings.

The Manfrotto 502HD Pro Video Head with Flat Base (3/8"-16 Connection) is an affordable yet remarkably full-featured professional head that represents an advance over the popular 501HDV, with sturdier construction and featuring Manfrotto's patented bridging technology (inherited from the 509HD and 504HD heads). This head is designed for executing cinematic moves with compact camcorders and DSLR video cameras. The 502HD comes in two versions: the "AH" flat-base version, which this one is, and the "A" ball-base version, which is separately available. 

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 that might be due to matte boxes or exotic 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 of course 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 place secured by secondary safety system
