  • 500PLONG Quick Release Plate
  • Handle

The Manfrotto MVH500AH Flat Base 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.


· 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

· 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'd recommend this to entry level/semi-pro operators Very smooth head which is easy to lock for pan and tilt and easy to control as well. Only downside, and it's slight, is that is will unscrew very easily from the base.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Large and very smooth It's a large head, but the pan is smooth and the spring-counterbalanced tilt is easy. The mounting plate makes balancing easy, you can mount the handle on either side, and there is a separate thread for accessories. Very nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job with both good value and good design. A very well made light weight video fluid head and good value for money. A perfect match for my Sirui monopod and light weight Manfrotto tripod.
Great to work with DSLR and mirrorless cameras when taking video.
Particularly like the side mounting camera mount.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple, smooth Head is tough, sturdy and smooth enough for a lot of professional applications. Only cheap and lacks a lot of pro features such as counter balance and friction control but excellent but for the money. Unless you need super control in zoomed in situations this fluid head will be very usable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality fluid head The Manfrotto heads are well engineered. I have the 504HD for my larger video camera and use the 500AH for my Panasonic GH4. This head is much lighter and attaches to a smaller tripod making it easier to move around. Pan and tilt is very smooth and easy to lock off. Pricing through Videoguys was the best I could find and the item was shipped and received within a couple of days.
