    Details

    Manfrotto MVH500A 60mm Half-ball Video Head - The new 500, which replaces the 701HDV, is a lightweight video head featuring a wider platform to accommodate both HDSLR and interchangeable lens camcorder, as well as a sliding plate that ensures the appropriate balance even when shooting with very long lenses.

    The 500, the entry level of the Bridging Technology™ series, ensures smooth shots and fine control of up to 5kg of equipment. Its brand new side lock allows fast, secure and easy camera attachment.

    KEY BENEFITS

    · Beautifully smooth shots
    The 500 has real fluid cartridges on both pan and tilt axes to ensure that every movement made with the camera is smooth,
    controlled and precise, avoiding the jarring starts, stops and staggers that mark poor footage. With more usable, beautiful video from
    every assignment, you’ll be thankful for the fluidity when you get to the post-production and editing of your films.


    · Better equipment support and balance
    The wider shape of HDSLR bodies is solidly supported by the 500’s broader, longer top plate. A design made possible by the
    structural advantages of Manfrotto’s Bridging Technology™.

    The longer sliding plate has a greater range of adjustment to balance the different cameras, lenses and accessory equipment
    setups.
    
    · Faster, easier and safer to use
    The new side lock allows the plate to click quickly into the 500 from above. No more fiddly alignment and delicate sliding.
    No secondary safety button is needed either. The single side lock system also makes it quicker and simpler to lift the camera off the
    head. Its counterbalance is pre-set to 2.4kg (5.3 lbs), but the 500’s max load is 5kg (11lbs).

    The 500 has one Easy Link 3/8” connector to allow an external monitor or other accessory equipment to be fitted.
