Heavy, Durable, Lots of Drag, Great buy for money

Aarontuxe, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I bought the 502hd panning and tilting in independent videos. The video head has significant drag and allows for shake free movement, as long a your tripod is heavy/stabilized. It also supports enough weight for an enthusiast with a heavier dslr/mic/light set up.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion
  • Cons: Heavy

Replaced an old 501HDV with this head.....

StudioDTK5, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I had the 501 since about 2007 and liked it, but recently I noticed it did not track on a level balance through a pan. There also developed a bit of a stick when starting pans and tilts. This head fixed both those problems. It is larger than the 501 series head.
  • Pros: Smooth pans and tilts
  • Cons: Poorly Placed Locks

Great Tripod Head

  • Excerpt: The 502HD Manfrotto tripod head is solid. There are a few little quirks but nothing that affects the overall use of the product. It's smooth and sturdy. It's a great investment for Indie filmmakers. This product easily exceeds my expectations.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp

  • Excerpt: Replaced old style bulky manfrotto tripods with these and got more than I expected. Working with kids I wanted to upgrade to a fluid head tripod and a sticks system comparable to what they will see after graduating.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Highly Compatible, Improves Performance, Professional Quality
  • Cons: A Little Big For The Bag

Great Fluid Head For The Price

Gravity Dog, B&H Photo
21 July 2015
  • Excerpt: This is a really great fluid head for this price range and Manfrotto does an excellent job with the build quality. The only thing that is hindering me from giving it a full 5 stars is the fact that they put the pan and tilt locks in awkward places.

Very satisfied so far

Keith K, B&H Photo
17 July 2015
  • Excerpt: I'm very happy with this purchase. This is a solid head / tripod combo for mid and light weight camera systems. I know the rule of thumb is to spend as much on your tripod as you do on your camera (stability and control is key) but I was not in a situation that allowed for the expense.
  • Pros: Highly Compatible, Improves Performance, Professional Quality
