Light, sturdy tripod

  • Excerpt: I use this for video and small carbon jib. Seems to hold the weight and very light. The upper allen is not tight on upper legs and allen wrench doesn't fit to tighten. Sweet tripod yet be nice if the parts were made to replace individually.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Use, Highly Compatible, Lightweight
  • Cons: Lacks Functionality, Poor Design

  • Excerpt: Looked for tripod legs for my older Manfrotto 501 video head. I found B&H's breakdown of the options organized and all the specs were clear. Better then Manfrotto site. Questions like can my head mount to this tripod. It is very light but sturdy. It holds a heavy dslr with big lens. I bought a small slider for it. Wouldnt put a huge rig on it. But would not look stupid with a smaller camcorder on it.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly

Works great

  • Excerpt: I have used this tripod with the 501 head on two jobs: 1. A full day wedding2. A 3 day trip to Southern Mexico.Here's what I like about it. It's light. It fit in my checked luggage without the head.... I can easily carry it around with the camera and quickly set it up with the half ball to level. Then I tap the center connector with my knee and it folds up and I can carry the whole thing around even through tight doorways or a wedding reception with tight tables.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
  • Cons: Not Made For Jibs

Great Overall, Could be more stable

  • Excerpt: I bought this product for a wide range of video work. The Legs seem like they can support a good amount of weight but when extended to full capacity the connections aren't as strong as I wanted. They dont wabble or fall out of place, nothing this dramatic, but they're not like a good pair of single tube carbon fiber legs.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
  • Cons: A bit flimsy

Manfr 502AM 75 mm Halbschale - vielleicht für " Sonntagsfilmer "

cinelive, Amazon
10 June 2014
  • Summary: Für einen ernsthaften Videofilmer ist das Stativ ( made in China ) leider zu schwach , zu leicht und mit viel zu viel Plastic verarbeitet. Für öfteren anspruchsvollen Einsatz zu wackelig und zu zerbrechlich.Leider nicht weiter zu empfehlen - immerhin auch mit ca. € 240,00 - nicht gerade billig für einen Hobbyvideographen .
