    Comments about Manfrotto 509HLV Pan Bar for Video Heads:

    I shoot promo videos for one of the top musical theater companies in the US. I shoot them live on opening night. There are no do-overs.
    I had been using the single pan bar that came with my Manfrotto tripod, along with a zoom/record remote. I was quite happy with this setup for a few years until one night this season, when I had a strained neck and shoulder. That really affected my camera work. There was a lot of wobble, and even composition suffered because it was painful to monitor and pan. I need to supply my best work for these top national performers and the company I freelance for.
    I wondered why most video shooting you see on TV sports, studios, they all have dual pan arms. Must be a good thing.
    So ordered a second pan bar that night. As soon as I received it and installed it, I realized what a mistake it was not having one. I liked it so much, I ordered a second, just so it would match my original handle.
    The rest of the season, my panning and zooms were maybe 150% better, even on a night when my neck and shoulder flared up. There is a definite synergy in having two.

        Having a second handle is a requiremen, not a luxury, for sports productions. This handle works just as advertised and the telescoping feature makes it just about perfect.

            Comments about Manfrotto 509HLV Pan Bar for Video Heads:

            This product works fine on a 501 head, but you have to take off the screw assembly that comes with it and use the screw assembly that came with your 501 head. The screw size is different and the grip part that is sawtooth shaped is also different, but the hole for the pole is the same size. So don't buy for the 501 head unless you already have an assembly you can use for this handle. The handle extends nicely, as it should.

                Comments about Manfrotto 509HLV Pan Bar for Video Heads:

                Palm Sunday I was shooting in a large auditorium with my camera perched on an 8ft high tripod. For an hour and ten minutes I was doing close following of a speaker on the stage. Reaching up above my head to the pan bar that came with my tripod I thought my arms were going to fall off and I had to constantly switch arms and rest against the tripod, The next day, Monday I ordered the 509HLV Pan Bar that extends to 24" because I was going to be shoot the same set up on Easter Sunday. That extra ten inches really made a difference.
