TRIPODS / FLUID HEADS / ETC


Manfrotto 503 Fluid Head and Manfrotto 351mvb2 Tripod


The Bogen/Manfrotto 351MVB2 Tripod w/3460 (503) fluid head kit is the perfect setup. This tripod kit has tandem leg sections, mid-level spreader, a 75mm bowl topped with a smooth pro fluid video head that all folds down to a small size due to its three leg sections. The Head drag adjustment device is continuous, from 0 to maximum level, allowing very fine control of the movements. The 503 head was designed for payloads up to an ample 13 lb, and the light but positive fluid movement provides exceptionally smooth control.
