    I purchased the Manfrotto 701HDV Fluid Head MVT502AM Tripod during the sale. Unfortunately, I'm really disappointed. I really don't understand how it can get a 5 star rating. It may be fine if you've never used anything better. but... oh well.

    You win some and lose some. I think my biggest complaint is the 701 head. It just isn't made for anything but the lightest of DSLRs IMO. It's really hard to lock down the vertical tilt.

    How does the Manfrotto Mvh502A Head, 546B Tripod compare to the Sachtler Ace Fluid Head with 2-Stage Aluminum Tripod & Mid-Level Spreader. I've heard good things about it. The B&H price for the Sachtler is $535, and the Manfrotto is $549, without the instant savings and rebate. Seems like they are targeted for the same market segment, being comparable in price. Is this an attempt by Manfrotto to take away some of the sales from Sachtler? Just wondering what you and other think, as I was close to pulling the trigger on the Sachtler....until I saw your post. Thanks.

    I think I may buy a couple more 755XB MDEVE's. It's proved to be flexible and reliable. However, I may try the FC-270A that everybody speaks highly of. My biggest concern is it's low height which requires talent to be in a seated position etc. Not to mention it looks heavy and will require me to add a manfroto quick release system to it if I find the head is good.

    I started with the Manfrotto 055XB with 128RC and just upgraded the head to the MVH502AH. Its big, smooth and in a different league to the 128RC. Love it!

    Does anyone know how Manfrotto 701HDV Fluid Head MVT502AM Tripod would compare to the FC-270A tripod system that is found on Amazon or Ebay?

    Everything I own is Manfroto quick release systems... But I'm needing to invest in a couple more tripods.

    Just bought some cheap Manfrotto sticks without a head from amazon. lol returning them and bought the MVT502. That's a pretty decent deal 244 after rebate. It is in the form of a Visa Prepaid Gift Card though where on Amazon it is a check I believe. Just thought I should point that out.

    Thanks for the heads up! Glad I check this site everyday.
