The Manfrotto MVH500AH Lightweight Fluid Video Head with Flat Base is a lightweight head with a wider platform for HDSLR bodies which has a sliding plate which travels to balance the latest interchangeable lens cameras. The fluid video head ensures smooth shots and fine control with up to 5kg of equipment. It’s the most compact head in Manfrotto's successful Bridging Technology™ range and it replaces the successful Manfrotto 701HDV video head.

The MVH500AH head has professional fluid cartridges on both pan and tilt axes to ensure that every camera movement is smooth, controlled and precise. The MVH500AH is faster, easier and safer to use: 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.

The Manfrotto MVH500AH fluid head has a pre-set counterbalance of 2.4kg, but is able to support equipment of up to 5kg. It has one Easy Link 3/8” connector to allow an external monitor or other accessory equipment to be fitted. This MVH500AH head features flat base tripod mount for attachment to a hybrid photo/video tripod, a traditional photo tripod, slider, a monopod or other supports.
