The benefits of the 502 heads are as follows:
Versatility of application and cross-compatibility
These heads have been developed specifically to provide perfect support forboth the latest camcorders and HDSLR cameras, and can support up to 4 kg (8.8lb) of equipment. They are suitable for a wide range of applications, from sporting events to family celebrationsand weddings, or corporate events and business meetings.
Guaranteeing the exceptional and enviable dynamic performance of these heads are Manfrotto’sinnovative, patented ‘bridge architecture’ and our customary cutting-edge engineering.
Quality of materials and construction
The heads are made entirely from aluminum to ensure rigidity and safety while shooting. The longer sliding plate allows for better camera balance, while the wider cross-section of the head is specially designed around the profiles of the latest cameras, also allowing easy access to the heads’ secondary accessory connectors.
Smooth, vibration-free movements
The PAN and TILT movements are smoothed by ball-bearing units that remove all unwanted vibration acrossall operating temperatures. Both heads have a variable Fluid Drag System (FDS) with adjustable cartridges. The ergonomics of the PAN fluidity controls have been noticeably improved.
OurCounterBalanceSystem (CBS) ensures that set-up and fine-tuning of the head for optimal performance is fast and easy, no matter how the camera’s weight is distributed, in turn making shooting easier to control and keeping valuable equipment more securely supported.
The new quick release button has been moved for better accessibility. The pan bar can be attached to eitherthe left or the right side of the head depending on preference, andalso provides improved ergonomics thanks to the quality and textures of the materials chosen which allow for a steadier, more comfortable grip.
The heads are made from PVC-free material as part of Manfrotto’s ongoing commitment to designing products that put environmental concerns high on the list of priorities.
