The Manfrotto MVK500AM Lightweight Fluid Video Tripod Kit includes the MVT502AM Twin Leg Video Tripod, the MVH500A Lightweight Fluid Video Head with 60mm Half Ball and a padded carrying bag.
The Manfrotto MVH500A Lightweight Fluid Video Head with 60mm Half Ball 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 MVH500A head is supplied with a 60mm half ball video tripod mount and it has professional fluid cartridges on both pan and tilt axes to ensure that every camera movement is smooth, controlled and precise. The MVH500A 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 MVH500A 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.
The MVT502AM video tripod is a traditional 2-stage, aluminium twin-tube video tripod that has professional features yet is designed to be intuitive, user-friendly and suited to lightweight applications. The MVT502AM has telescopic aluminium legs for compactness and reduced weight; its innovative ellipse-profile tubing with redesigned leg locking collars give it excellent levels of rigidity and stability. The first-stage spreader has improved ergonomics and ease of use, while the tripod_†_s rubber feet improve grip on all floor and ground surfaces. A rubber strap ensures easier, safer transport.
