About Manfrotto MVH500A

The Manfrotto MVH500A Professional Fluid Video Head (60mm Half Ball) 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.

The MVH500A is supplied with a 60mm half ball video tripod mount 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.
