Hey M&A I'm going to be upgrading my tripod setup. Head and legs, the whole deal. I am looking at either the 502 or the 504. I was wondering if anyone had been able to work with either or these setups and preferably both. I have a few questions about them before buying one. It's always nice to save a few hundred bucks if possible.
-It appears the 504 is bigger but is the difference worth noting? They look pretty similar in size but can't really tell.
-Any of the Manfrotto heads with the 75mm ball can be leveled without manipulating the tripod legs correct?
-How easy is it to set the counterbalance on the 502? I know the 504 has the 4 stop knob on the right side which looks pretty sick. Does the 502 have the same feature? I would assume so but wanted clarification.
