With its adjustable spring-loaded counter balance system and independently variable pan/tilt fluid drag, the Manfrotto MVK504AQ Spreaderless Video Tripod with MVH504HD Fluid Head
is suitable for cameras weighing up to 16.5 pounds. The head mounts on
the single tube four section three stage legs, allowing you to use the
MVH504HD that comes with the bundle to create smooth camera moves.
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.
