The side lock system on the MVH500A allows the sliding QR plate to click into the head from above, instead of needing to be aligned and slid in from the back. This gives you the speed of a touch and go quick release with the balance adjustment capability of a sliding QR plate. The head is made from an aluminum alloy so it is durable and lightweight at under 2.5 pounds, and the built-in bubble level aids in quickly leveling the head. The included long sliding balance plate features both 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 camera tie-down screws. The MVH500A includes one pan bar, however the head features pan bar mounting rosettes on both sides of the head for operator comfort.
