Manfrotto 502A Pro Video Head with 75mm Half Ball
This Manfrotto Bundle includes the 502A Pro Video Head, the 546GB Tripod with a Ground Spreader, and a Tripod Carry Bag. The 502A features a 75mm half ball and 7 kg payload, and the 546GB offers a max height of 39 cm.
The Manfrotto 502A Pro Video Head with 75mm Half Ball is an affordable yet remarkably fully featured professional head that represents an advance over the popular 501HDV, with sturdier construction and a half ball for precise leveling on a corresponding tripod. The 502A comes in two versions—the “A” ball-base version such as this one, and the “AH” flat-base version which is separately available.
Featuring Manfrotto’s patented bridging technology (inherited from the 509 and 504 heads), the 502A is designed for executing cinematic moves with compact camcorders and DSLR video cameras. The weight limit is 7 kg and counterbalance supports up to 4 kg. The balance plate’s 8.5 cm 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 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.For video tripods with 75mm half balls75mm half ball connects to the corresponding bowl in a tripodPan drag and tilt drag are continuously adjustable from 0 (no drag) to the maximum levelSliding quick release plate secured by secondary safety system
