The Manfrotto MVM500A Aluminium Fluid Monopod with 500 Head is a lightweight fluid monopod with a specially adapted 500 video head attached. It has an innovative fluid pan cartridge incorporated into the base that gives you an incredibly smooth panning action. It offers great compactness while folded thanks to the three retractable feet.
The patented fluid monopod features wider platform for HDSLR bodies and the sliding plate travels to balance the latest interchangeable lens cameras. This Manfrotto monopod ensures smooth shots and fine control with up to 5kg of equipment.
It is also 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 monopod has one Easy Link 3/8" connector to allow an external monitor or other accessory equipment to be fitted.
