The Manfrotto MVH502A.546GB-1 Video Kit 83/168cm Legs Pro Tripod 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 158 cm.
Manfrotto 502A Pro Video Head with 75mm Half Ball
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 levelling 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 8.3 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.

Manfrotto 546GB Pro Video Tripod with Ground-Level Spreader
The Manfrotto 546GB Pro Video Tripod with Ground-level Spreader is an aluminium two stage/3 section tripod that combines stability and strength with affordability. Reaching a maximum height of 158.5 cm, the 546GB is capable of supporting up to 20 kg. Its spiked feet come with rubber overshoes, allowing setups on both smooth floors and uneven surfaces, while a newly designed ground-level telescopic spreader keeps the legs exactly where you need them.
