About the Manfrotto MVH500AH

The Manfrotto MVH500AH Professional Fluid Video System (Aluminum Legs / MDeVe) 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. It's the most compact head in successful Bridging Technology range and it also replaces the Manfrotto 701HDV video head.

It has professional fluid cartridges on both pan and tilt axes to ensure that every camera movement is smooth, controlled and precise. 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. It has a pre-set counterbalance of 2.4kg (5.3 lbs), but is able to support equipment of up to 5kg (11 lbs). It has one easy link 3/8" connector to allow an external monitor or other accessory equipment to be fitted.

The 755XB MDeVe tripod is a hybrid two-stage (or 3-section), aluminum single leg-tube tripod that's compact and lightweight. It has a flat head plate, but a built-in MDeVe 50mm half-ball leveling system (locked by a rotating grip at the bottom of the center column), which allows the camera operator to level the camera without needing to make micro adjustments to each individual tripod leg. Tension-adjustable flip leg levers make setting up and packing away the tripod fast and easy.
