About the Manfrotto 501HDV

The 501HDV includes a powerful new feature inspired by our top professional video head models a fixed counterbalance spring (set for a typical weight of camera + accessories of 5.5 lbs.) that helps ensure both smoother tilt movements and greater equipment safety even when tilt locks are inadvertently left off.

The easy-to-reach on/off switch allows the counterbalance system to be disengaged or re-engaged for different filming setups. From the outside, the first thing that you'll notice about the new 501HDV video head is its updated design completely retuned for much improved ergonomics with locks and knobs that allow a more solid gripand better fingertip control.

The 501HDV inherits its separate pan and tilt locks, gradual tilt friction adjustment system, flat base (with standard 3/8" thread), quick release camera plate and repositionable pan bar from its successful predecessor.
