Manfrotto 526,536K MPRO Carbon Fiber Tripod/Pro Video Head Kit

Features in Detail | Enlarged Image

The 526,536K is a complete kit for heavy duty cameras. The kit consists of the Manfrotto 536 MPRO Four-Section Carbon Fiber Video Tripod, the 526 Pro Video Head and the MBAG100PN Padded Tripod Bag.

The Manfrotto MPRO 536 Video Tripod is manufactured with the world's most advanced high-performance materials: 100% carbon fiber tubes and magnesium die castings. Manfrotto technology produces an ergonomic, user-friendly video tripod that is incredibly lightweight yet stable, compact, versatile and easy to use. The MPRO 536 boasts a robust load capacity of 55 pounds and a maximum height of more than 6.5 feet. Four leg sections allow the MRO 536 to fold down to a closed length of under 28 inches.

The 526 Pro Video head directly addresses the heavy-duty, high-end ENG and EFP video market by offering a feature-packed fluid video head that has all of the combined benefits of Manfrotto's 500 series heads with the ability to support top weight loads of 35.3 pounds. The 526 offers Manfrotto's most precise fluid drag system.

Replacing the MBAG100P Tripod Bag, the Manfrotto MBAG100PN Padded Tripod Bag is identical in features and design to the top-of-the-line MBAG120PN, but in a slightly smaller size. The MBAG100PN is padded to protect your equipment. Innovative design and style: ballistic nylon, zips and other materials used are of top quality and designed in collaboration with Kata Carrying Systems.

Manfrotto 536 MPRO Four-Section Carbon Fiber Video Tripod

Carbon Fiber Leg Sections With Magnesium Castings
The best tripod is still the one you bring along. Lightweight tripods have not only become a mainstay, they are now a requisite for digital photographers. The trick is to lose weight and maintain maximum support without sacrificing stability, rigidity and reliability. The MPRO 536 is manufactured with the world's most advanced high-performance materials: 100% carbon fiber tubes and magnesium die castings. Manfrotto's carbon fiber tubing is popular among outdoor photographers because it's light in weight, but also more rigid and supports heavier loads than aluminum -- giving it a double advantage. Lightweight magnesium is used for die-cast parts. Magnesium has a 35% lower density than aluminum. Despite its lower weight, magnesium is more rigid than aluminum, and has the same strength per volume.
Improved Quick-Action Leg Locks
Quick-action leg locks allow you to quickly and quietly set the tripod into position. The ergonomics of the quick action leg locks has been greatly improved.
Industry Standard 75mm and 100mm Bowl Interface
The screw-in 75mm / 100mm bowl adaptor will hold both varieties of industry standard half-ball heads.
All Terrain Retractable Spiked Metal Feet
Rubber feet with retractable metal spikes help make the versatile MPRO 536 easy-to-use whether shooting inside or outdoors. Use the 536 outdoors with the spike extended for better grip on soft terrain such as moss and plants, or indoors with the rubber foot covering the spike to avoid damaging floors and to provide stable non-slip support.

526 Pro Video Head Key Features

Fluid Movement, +75° to -70° Tilt Range, 360° Pan Range
Manfrotto's pan and tilt movement technology is based on a system of cartridges filled with a specific silicon fluid. This technology provides the smooth, constant movement needed to achieve shake-free images while panning and tilting during all types of video shooting sessions.
Built-in 100mm Half-Ball and Spirit Level
The built-in 100mm half-ball adapts to a number of Manfrotto tripods with a 100mm receiver, allowing the quick levelling of the camera with the aid of the bright levelling bubble.
4-Step Adjustable Drag Control
The 526 offers Manfrotto's 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.

Independent Pan and Tilt Locking Mechanisms
Variable Counter Balance Adjustment
Counterbalance is achieved using a system of springs inside the head which help to keep the camera from rolling forwards or backwards under its own weight when the video head is tilted. This system allows a cameraman to achieve smoother tilt movements. The spring can be adjusted in order to operate from a minimum of 17.6 pounds to a maximum of 33.1 pounds.
Removable and Replaceable Pan Arm Rosette
The 526 also 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 left side controls (tilt and pan lock, tilt drag) so they can be easily found. The 526 comes with one pan arm.
Sliding Quick-Release Plate With Secondary Safety Lock
The ability to adjust the camera plate by sliding it allows you to accurately balance the camera load on the head and reduce to a minimum the effort required to tilt it forward and backward. The plate is supplied with two 1/4" and two 3/8" camera screws.

Manfrotto MBAG100PN Padded Tripod Bag

Manfrotto MBAG100PN 39.4-inch Padded Tripod Bag

Replacing the MBAG100P Tripod Bag, the Manfrotto MBAG100PN Padded Tripod Bag is identical in features and design to the MBAG120PN, but in a slightly smaller size. The MBAG100PN is padded to protect your equipment. Innovative design and style: ballistic nylon, zips and other materials used are of top quality and designed in collaboration with Kata Carrying Systems.

The redesigned MBags, available in six models of varying lengths, feature new padding with a thermoformed Manfrotto logo, a rubberized loop which makes it easier to open and close, and new attention to the details, making this range of bags iconic and user friendly. The innovation of these Manfrotto carrying solutions is all in the details, in the tech materials and in the improved ergonomics that make these products worthy partners of Manfrotto's proven professional tripods and heads.

MBAG100PN Padded Tripod Bag Key Features

Easy access even with the bigger video tripods
Easy access even with the bigger video tripods
End Opening Allows for Faster "Quiver" Style Extraction and Insertion of Tripod
Zip extends down the length of the bag, but also fully opens the top end of the bag, making it easier to get your tripod in and out, as well as being able to extract the tripod quickly. You can extract the tripod quickly from the end of the bag like an arrow from a quiver.
Comfortable Carrying Handle
Ergonomic Design
Asymmetric tapered shape allows you to store the tripod with the head attached. Tripod legs fit comfortably in the narrower end (7.87" diameter) and extra space is allowed for the larger volume of the head at the wider end (9" diameter). This also means it's easier to put the tripod and head in the bag, even if the head levers and knobs are fitted and jut out slightly.
Durable Materials, Padded End Cap
Thermoform padding holds the tripod in place and protects it, especially the head, during transport. Serves a double purpose by protecting you from the tripod's hard edges when carrying it by your side. Logo end cap is padded to offer protection to the tripod head. High quality durable materials, and padded ends protects your tripod throughout.
Inner Pocket
Inner pocket holds accessories (such as video head pan bars) where they won't rattle around or get damaged.
Easy-Grip Zip Opening
New rubberized Manfrotto loop helps when using the zips.
Versatile Carrying Options
Can be hand-carried horizontally by the side handle, vertically by the end handle, or shoulder-carried using the included strap. Side carrying handle is adjustable to better balance transportation of heavy heads mounted on the tripod. The end handle is also useful for storage, allowing you an easy way to remove the bag from a high shelf, for example.
