Great Fluid Head For The Price

Gravity Dog, B&H Photo
2 weeks ago
  • 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.

Consistent Quality from Manfrotto

Griffin, B&H Photo
2 July 2015
  • Excerpt: This is the third 502 HD head that my office has purchased, we use them all the time! The flat base is great on a slider or jib. We use these heads with a 5D MKIII, and they work great. The only thing that would make it better is if the tilt lock was on the left side.

Great fluid head for the price

El Strockito, B&H Photo
26 June 2015
  • Excerpt: the head is very substantial (I was expecting a smaller head for some reason), solid build and smooth. Adjustments are easy to make and I especially like the dial for adjusting pan speed. The fact that it detaches/can attach to a slider is a bonus!
  • Pros: Good Stability
