Video kit with 516 Head, 542ART Tripod, 500BALL Half Ball, Bag.
Manfrotto 516 Pro Fluid Video Head With Rapid Connect Plate 357PLV
Specifically designed for the latest DV camcorders used by documentary and industrial videographers. The 516 head is very compact and light but can support cameras up to 10 kg. The 516 is a cost effective high performance head equipped with fluid cartridges that provide continuous adjustable drag control. This system gives quite a wide range of friction control down to “zero drag” and operates on both pan and tilt axis. Other important features of the head are: separate tilt and pan locking mechanism; a fixed counter balance spring of 7,5 kg load capacity at a center of gravity of 125mm; two telescopic pan handles; a bubble level. The head has been designed so it can be mounted on a fl at base tripod with a 3/8” female thread attachment or by attaching the ART 500BALL to the head base, allowing it to fit a 100mm bowl.
Manfrotto 542ART Road Runner Carbon Fiber Video Tripod with 75mm + 100mm Bowl
Use of carbon fiber tubing makes this two-stage video tripod one of the lightest in its class. The 542 uses our patented A.R.T. (Advanced Release Technology) mechanism for the fastest opening, positioning and closing of any video tripod in the world, ideal for filming under pressure. Comes with 100mm-75mm bowl adapter for compatibility with all industry-standard half-ball video heads. Included mid level “squid” spreader offers improved anti-torsion resistance and keeps legs locked safely in position even when space is cramped and tripod footprint is necessarily smaller. Double stainless steel spiked feet also come with quick-on/off rubber shoes for better grip on smooth fl oors. No protruding parts, levers or knobs to catch or damage. When closed, tripod legs interlock without additional clips, straps or hooks to ensure compactness and prevent damage. Leg lock mechanism can be adjusted for increased or reduced tightness.
