        Comments about Manfrotto 503LV Pan Handle:

        I use this with my Manfrotto 501 pan head for live video recording within my church. It has improved the overall smoothness of panning/tilting features due to it's extending handle giving me better leverage.
        The 503 pan handle unfortunately does not immediately fit the 501 head, so you have to switch the original 501 pan handle base adapter with the 503 base adapter, which leaves you with only one handle (if you were hoping to use two handles like I did).
        Overall, though, it is a dramatic improvement to my needs.

          A second handle makes tracking shoots smoother and easier than ever. And nothing is better than one that matches the original.

              Comments about Manfrotto 503LV Pan Handle:

              Not compatible with the 503HDV head, or the 501. I would think that that would be a sub point in the product description, instead of matching up numbers with their new version of head.

                    This pan handle is a perfect replacement for one that was broken on the tripod. The ability to adjust the length is a bonus.

                        Comments about Manfrotto 503LV Pan Handle:

                        We couldn't be happier that you can purchase a replacement for the pan handle. We shoot dozens of hours of video on a weekly basis, and the teeth wear out quickly on the tripod pan handles. Even though this only solves half of the problem (the other half of the teeth are on the tripod head), it still improves traction and functionality for a fraction of the cost of getting a new head. It's quick and easy to replace with important results.

                          I used it for the left side of the 503 pro head.I can attached from monitor, light, or other accessories using supper clamp. The price was great as well.
