Manfrotto MVH500A Fluid Tripod Head w/ 3 Section Tripod and Carrying Bag Product Info

The Manfrotto Lightweight Fluid Video System MVK500AM has been designed to provide you with the perfect lightweight tripod system for any videographer. This Tripod Kit from Manfrotto includes the fluid video head (60mm half ball) MVH500A and the twin leg video tripod MVT502AM (aluminum, middle spreader).

  • The Manfrotto MVH500A 60mm Fluid Ball Tripod Tripod Head is a lightweight head with a wider platform for HDSLR bodies and the sliding plate travels to balance the latest interchangeable lens cameras. The entry-level 500 ensures smooth shots and fine control with up to 5kg (11 lbs) of equipment. The Manfrotto Fluid Lightweight Video Tripod Kit comes with the most compact head in their successful Bridging Technology range. MVH500A is supplied with a 60mm half ball video tripod mount and it also replaces the Manfrotto 701HDV video head. Beautifully smooth shots: the 500 has professional fluid cartridges on both pan and tilt axes to ensure that every camera movement is smooth, controlled and precise. Faster, easier and safer to use: the side lock system allows the camera and sliding QR plate to click quickly into the head from above, instead of needing to be aligned and slid in from the back. No secondary safety lock is necessary. The side lock system also makes it quicker and simpler to lift the camera out of the head from above. The 500 has a pre-set counterbalance of 2.4kg (5.3 lbs), but is able to support equipment of up to 5kg (11 lbs). The Manfrotto 500 Tripod Kit has one Easy Link 3/8" connector to allow an external monitor or other accessory equipment to be fitted.
  • The Manfrotto MVT502AM Video Tripod is a traditional 2-stage, aluminum twin-tube video tripod that has professional features yet is designed to be intuitive, user-friendly and suited to lightweight applications. The MVT502AM has telescopic aluminum legs for compactness and reduced weight; its innovative ellipse-profile tubing with redesigned leg locking collars give it excellent levels of rigidity and stability. The first-stage spreader on the Manfrotto MVH500A Tripod Kit with Fluid Head has improved ergonomics and ease of use, while the tripod's rubber feet improve grip on all floor and ground surfaces. A rubber strap ensures easier, safer transport. Supplied with padded carrying bag.
