Manfrotto MVH500AH Lightweight Fluid Video Head with Flat Base
A must-have, versatile, high-functioning tripod video head. The Lightweight Fluid Video Head with Flat Base includes all the great features you’d expect from a classic video head, with extra innovative touches to make your job even easier. Thanks to a long list of intuitive design features, you can concentrate on getting perfect results, without the fuss. It’s extra-lightweight and compact, making it a cinch to slot into your kit bag and transport, but it can carry up to an impressive 5kgs, blending strength with portability.
Standout features include the patented Bridging Technology™ which enables you to move smoothly from one position to the next. In fact, using this tripod video head couldn’t be easier. Fluid cartridges on the pan and tilt axis gives you all the control you need when getting into precise position, without troublesome jerky movements. A counterbalance system manages heavier equipment such as interchangeable lens cameras like a breeze, and a wider platform supports HDSLR bodies.
Adding to its user-friendly features is a clever, accessible side lock system. It enables you to quickly click the camera in from above, rather than the back. And this lock is totally secure, eliminating the need for a secondary lock, so you can work even faster with confidence. Plus, it comes with a universal 6.4mm fitting, and a 9.5mm adapter to easily link your accessories like a monitor. And the flat base mount enables you to connect a variety of supports, from hybrid photo, and video tripods, traditional photo tripods, through to monopods.
