The Manfrotto MVH500AH Pro Fluid Head is an ideal choice for lighter video cameras or DVSLRs and with its flat base can be mounted to any typical photo tripod. The fluid cartridge has a fixed drag and gives a very smooth movement. The counterbalance is optimised for a 2.4kg load, but will support up to 5kg. The pan bar can be positioned on either side of the head, and the sliding 500PLONG camera plate with can be mounted from the side, rather than being slid in from the end, which speeds up camera attachment. The plate has 1/4" and 3/8" screws and a video pin. On the side is a 3/8" socket for attachment of accessories (spigots, arms, monitors etc).
