Stock Ball Leveler on Manfrotto 509HD??

Hey guys,

Just had a quick question. Looking at the new Manfrotto 509HD. Based on the picture on B&H's website (
Manfrotto 509HD Professional Video Head 509HD B&H Photo Video
), and by what the sales guy said, this head has a ball leveler built into it, similar to the 500BALL (on B&H).

Can anyone support/deny this ??

Thanks!!!
Martin

Great, thanks for your response Chris. Are you happy with the head? I've seen mixed reviews on this site and elsewhere. What camera(s) are you using on it?

Its better than the smaller heads. I'm happy with it.

I use it most with an EX1 and starting to use it with the F3.

Great, so I'm sure I'll be happy using it too - I have an EX1R.
