Manfrotto 055XPROB Tripod with 501HDV Head Kit


Finding a decent fixed spring head for light weight cameras can be tough, but Manfrotto's crafted a great option for cameras up to 13.2 lbs with this one. The 501HDV Pro Video Head features improved drag in both axes and switchable counterbalance and it has a sliding camera plate for simple balancing.

Owner Notes:

-Supports 13.2 lbs

-Quick set-up and disassembly, consistently smooth pans

-Quick action leg locks, and leg-angle release mechanism

-The 501HDV Pro Video Head features improved drag in both axes and switchable counterbalance
