I received my 502 yesterday. The instruction manual states, "The head has two 3/8" female thread holes "J" (fig. 11) which can be used to attach accessories (such as Manfrotto arms for supporting lights, etc)." Great!
So, I attached a Youngnuo YN300-II LED video light to a Manfrotto 192B-2 adjustable arm and mounted the assembly onto the MVH502AH head per Figure 11 in the instructions. Much to my surprise and dismay, as I tilted the 502 head forward just slightly, the light/arm assembly ripped right off the head, taking the Easy Link connector threads with it! Yikes! Fortunately, I was able to catch the video light just before it hit the tripod leg.
The light/arm assembly weighed a mere 1.15lbs. It was mounted per the instruction manual. I hope Manfrotto has a good explanation, and steps up to make me whole again.
Aside from that, the 502 is a very nice head.
I will update this post once I’ve figured out how to navigate the maze of Manfrotto Service partners and such. Wish me luck!
That said it's about 10 times better than the 701HDV head. I never could get a really smooth pan out of the 701. The 502 on the other hand is a smooth as silk and even has variable speed pans and tilts. I know the 701 kinda does that, but not very well. The 502 makes takes locks and separates them from the adjustments.
It works really well with small cranes (jibs) too. It's size and smoothness hold up to the weight of a crane very well.
Couple the 502 head with some Induro legs and you have an awesome setup for around $300-$350.
Things to note: the shorter Manfrotto plates slide in and lockdown just fine in the 502.
