Manfrotto Bogen 526 Pro Fluid Video Head w/ 528XB Tripod and MBAG120P Carrying Case526-528XBK is a complete tripod kit with the tripod, tripod head, and a soft carrying bag to keep it all in.
The Manfrotto 526 Professional Fluid Video Head directly addresses the heavy-duty, high-end ENG and EFP video market by offering a feature-packed fluid video head that borrows all the combined benefits of our 500 series heads with the ability to support top weight loads over 15lbs. The Manfrotto 526 Tripod Head features a replaceable and removable pan arm rosette so if any damage occurs to the side castings, only a small part needs to be replaced; large rubber padded knobs for better grip and all the controls (tilt and pan lock, tilt drag) are located on the left side so they can be easily found. The Manfrotto 526 Head offers our most precise fluid drag system comprised of three step settings for low, medium and high drag levels (numbered 1, 2 and 3), plus the additional no-drag setting (number 0) for such occasions as snap-pans/tilts. Counterbalance is achieved through an adjustable spring for camera weights between 17.5 and 33 lbs. The built-in 4-inch half-ball adapts to a number of our tripods with a 4-inch receiver, allowing the quick leveling of the camera with the aid of the bright leveling bubble. The 526 comes with one pan arm and the long 357PLV plate.
The Manfrotto 528XB Tripod is the ideal location tripod, with a massive 110 lbs (50kg) load capacity. It is a sturdy single-stage tripod with a single-tube leg structure. Tubes are made of stainless steel for strength under heavy loads, and aluminum for weight saving. The leg spread is fully adjustable, but also incorporates a 30° locked position for faster set up and greater strength. A 100mm bowl accepts industry-standard half-ball video heads and allows you to level the head quickly for accurate panoramic shots. The included claw ball allows you to use it with heads not equipped with a half ball. The Manfrotto 528XB Video Tripod includes a versatile mid-level spreader, which has telescopic "ratchet" braces that click into place in each of the preset positions for faster deployment. Each brace can be individually set, allowing each tripod leg to be a different length.
The Manfrotto MBAG120P Video Tripod Bag is a 47" long tripod soft case in black ballistic nylon, with padding. Empty weight: 3.3 lbs.
