Mvh502A Pro Video Head 75mm

The Manfrotto 502HD Pro Video Head with 75mm Half-Ball (MVH502A) is an affordable full-featured professional head that represents an advance over the popular 501HDV, with improved construction and a half-ball for precise leveling on a corresponding tripod. (Note the Ø75mm ball is not removable on this version)

Also featuring Manfrotto's patented bridging technology (inherited from the 509HD and 504HD heads), the 502HD is designed for executing cinematic moves with compact camcorders and DSLR video cameras. It supports up to 4kg, and spring-loaded counterbalance set for that weight. The sliding camera plate's 83mm adjustment, 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.


Pan drag and tilt drag are continuously adjustable from 0 (no drag) to the maximum level

75mm half ball connects to the corresponding bowl in a tripod (not included) and enables precise leveling
