The MVH500AH Fluid Head & 755CX3 MagFibre Tripod with Carrying Bag from Manfrotto includes a flat base fluid video head, a flat base two-stage tripod, and a black and red over-the-shoulder carrying bag. The bag is padded, has a zipper running along its full length, and fits the tripod and head.
The head features a wider-than-standard platform to provide better support for DSLRs. The maximum load capacity is 11 lb. A 500PLONG quick release plate is included, and a side lock system on the head allows the plate to efficiently attach and click in from above, instead of aligning and sliding in from one end. Fluid cartridges on both the pan and tilt axes provide resistance for smooth, controlled pan and tilt. The tilt range is -70° / +90° and the pan rotation is 360°. The spring-loaded counterbalance is preset at 5.3 lb. The camera plate has both 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 camera screws, and the head has a 3/8"-16 tripod mounting thread, with a 3/8" thread on the side for attaching accessories, such as a video monitor.
The tripod extends in two stages from 18.3 to 54.7" at the release of flip-lever lock clamps. Additionally, a center column is adjustable up and down to extend the maximum height to 64.6". The center column can also be removed entirely and used handheld with a camera still attached. The tripod legs are made of carbon fiber, which is lightweight in comparison to aluminum, absorbs vibrations better, and is immune to corrosion from water, including salt-water.
