With its spring-loaded counter balance system and fixed fluid drag, the Manfrotto MVK500AQ Spreaderless Video Tripod with MVH502A Fluid Head
is suitable for cameras weighing up to 11 pounds. The head mounts on
the single tube four section three stage legs, allowing you to use the MVH502A video head that comes
with the bundle and in the future upgrade to an optional heavier head,
while using the same legs.
The legs by themselves can support a little bit more than 44 pounds and
feature a spreaderless design for quick set-up and breakdown. The legs
feature tension adjustable flip locks so you can tighten the locks if
they should loosen over time. The spiked feet provide grip on soft
surfaces, while the spin down spike covers protect delicate surfaces and
provide grip on hard or slippery surfaces.
