    Having tow handles for your fluid head is the "cat's meow". Your movement will automatically be better. This handle is the replacement or addition to the 503 head. I use it as a second handle when documenting long sermons or messages.

        This is a reasonably priced upgrade that makes for a big difference in the tracking ability of the tripod. I recommend 2 handles for stage tracking work.

          The Manfrotto tripod we had did not have long enough arms when you have to raise it high. This helps !!!

            Comments about Manfrotto 519LV Pan Handle:

            Great replacement value for my existing 516 Fluid head.

            I did notice the finish on the main extension that connects to the head has a slightly different sheen than the OEM equipment. However, it is negligible.

            I would recommend to Manfrotto to allow for the reversal of the extension lock down lever/bracket as it would be more aesthetic and easier for the photographer/videographer to access on the outside of the handle than inner.

                    Comments about Manfrotto 519LV Pan Handle:

                    This is the same handle that comes with the 503 HDV, although it fits on both the 501 and the 503. It is a necessary addition to the 501 if you intend to do smooth movement with a long lens.

                      This handle is great because it is lightweight and very easy to adjust and use. It is also very easy to attach additional focus and zoom controls to thus making it very flexible and versatile.

                                    Relatively sturdy arm that needs the replaceable rosette to fit correctly.
