The lightweight fluid video system MVK500AM includes the fluid video head (60mm half ball) MVH500A and the twin leg video tripod MVT502AM (aluminum, middle spreader) .
The MVH500A is a lightweight head with a wider platform for HDSLR bodies and the sliding plate travels to balance the latest interchangeable lens cameras. The entry-level 500 ensures smooth shots and fine control with up to 5kg (11 lbs) of equipment.
It’s the most compact head in Manfrotto's successful Bridging Technology™ range.
MVH500A is supplied with a 60mm half ball video tripod mount and it also replaces the Manfrotto 701HDV video head.
Beautifully smooth shots: the 500 has professional fluid cartridges on both pan and tilt axes to ensure that every camera movement is smooth, controlled and precise.
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 500 has a pre-set counterbalance of 2.4kg (5.3 lbs), but is able to support equipment of up to 5kg (11 lbs). The 500 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.

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.
