Main Features
  • Better equipment support and balance
  • Faster, easier and safer to use
  • max load is 5kg
  • Aluminum Legs
  • Real fluid cartridges on both pan and tilt axes
  • Suitable for HDSLR
  • Counterbalance
  • Extends to 174cm*

Manfrotto MVH500AH,755XBK Alu MDEVE Single Leg Tripod System - 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.

Weight 3.0kg
Max Load 5kg
Counter balance 2.4kgs
Min Height 51cm
Max Height 149cm
Max height with center pol extended 174cm*

Comments about Manfrotto MVH500AH,755XBK Alu MDEVE Tripod System (kit):

The different locking system was a bit of a surprise (I should have read up more beforehand) but works very well, overall still the good old trusty tripod, working nicely and still well priced

Comments about Manfrotto MVH500AH,755XBK Alu MDEVE Tripod System (kit):

After months of debating whether to purchase a new tripod, I finally went ahead and pulled the trigger on this Manfrotto kit. So far I've been really pleased with the results. My slider shots are much more stable and the 755XBK is a solid upgrade from the 701HDV head I had used previously. 174cm is the highest it can go, which is fine for most applications.

The included carry bag is nice as well. Overall, a well recommended kit at this price point.

Comments about Manfrotto MVH500AH,755XBK Alu MDEVE Tripod System (kit):

Good quality product but the pan head constantly loosens and has to be tightened with a micro screwdriver.

Legs are much stiffer and heavier than my old Vanguard tripod.

Drag control is ok could be better.

Excellent build quality and wonderfully smooth panning and tilting. The head works great with sliders and the legs are strong enough to support the weight of many of them. A great tripod for travelling or productions where quick set ups are essential.

    • Q:

      Hi, Will the sliding plate from this tripod work with the Manfrotto quick release plate for Glidecam HD 2000? Thanks

        A:

        Hi Mark,

        When you say the sliding release plate for the HD2000 - I assume that's the Manfrotto 577 that you have?

        If that is the case, it's the same width as the plate included in this tripod kit - just the length is different but that won't cause you any issues. Hope that helps.

    • Q:

      Will this work with the ifootage Mini Crane M1 you sell? or will it be too heavy?

      • Staff Reviewer

        A:

        It will work, but i would go with the something heavier i.e. like 546 legs for better stability.

    • Q:

      Hi,

      Do you know if the sliding plate on this new tripod head will interchange with the 501pl sliding place on the 501hdv & 701hdv heads?

      • Staff Reviewer

        A:

        No.. it will be a different size plate.. so you need a 501PL plate
