Light with Height
“I really like the 503 because it’s has a wide range of height adjustments and at the same time it’s light weight, thanks to the carbon fiber. I’m actually using for video with a Bogen HDV 701 head and a Canon HV30. I’m quite happy with this light weight streamline set up. The main thing I would like to see change is the bubble level. The level itself is fine, but it doesn’t glow in the dark. Still well worth it for the money.” – By Trey
Solid performance; good price
“Steady support for Nikon D90 and 400mm f/5.6 lens (just under 5 lbs. total weight). No problem with long exposure night shots either. Haven’t yet tried it out under windy conditions, but so far so good.” – By Stan

Hakuba HG-503MX Features & Specifications
The Hakuba HG-503MX Tripod is extremely lightweight yet remarkably sturdy, with strong, 3-section carbon fiber legs and a durable magnesium body, making it an ideal choice for professionals on the move. Carbon fiber and magnesium materials are stronger and one-third lighter than aluminum, giving you a lighter load when traveling from location to location. The tripod offers both low-angle and semi-low-angle positions (with a reversible, split center column); a twist-lock system for secure leg-height adjustments; three independent leg-angle positions to adapt to any terrain; and scratch-resistant neoprene grips and rubber feet.
The Hakuba PH-G40 Magnesium 3-Way Pan Head pans and tilts in a variety of directions to enable you to adjust the camera to virtually any angle.
An accessory weight bag is included to give you the option to make the tripod even sturdier. It attaches to the legs and can be filled up with stones, rocks, or anything heavy to add to the stability of your tripod.
The Hakuba HG-503MX 70-inch Pro Carbon Fiber Tripod extends from 11 inches all the way up to 70.0 inches and offers a maximum load capacity of 25 pounds.
