The Manfrotto 502HD Pro Video Fluid Head with Flat Base 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). The 502HD is designed for executing cinematic moves with compact camcorders and DSLR cameras, and features a 75mm diameter flat base.

With a max. payload of 15.4 lb (7 kg), counterbalanced payload of 8.8 lb (4 kg), and 3.27" of sliding balance plate range, the user is able to both reliablly support and balance uneven or exotic DSLR 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 maximum level. This allows smooth operation using the included pan handle.

NOTE: This fluid head is also available as an "A" (ball-base) version. Contact your AbelCine salesperson for details and availability.
