B&H # MAMVH502AH MFR # MVH502AH

The Manfrotto 502AH Pro Video Head with Flat Base is an affordable yet remarkably fully featured professional head that represents an advance over the popular 501HDV, with sturdier construction and featuring Manfrotto's patented bridging technology (inherited from the 509 and 504 heads). This head is designed for executing cinematic moves with compact camcorders and DSLR video cameras. The 502AH comes in two versions—the "AH" flat-base version such as this, and the "A" ball base version which is separately available.

The weight capacity is 15.4 lb and counterbalance supports 8.8 lb. The balance plate's 3.27" range allows you to correct for uneven payloads due to matte boxes or DSLR rig configurations.

The bridging technology ensures that the pan friction control is intuitive and easy to set, but also protected against knocks. There are independent locks for pan and tilt, and drag for both is selectable in a continuous range from zero to the max level. This allows you to operate the head in a confident, smooth manner using the included pan bar.

"5 Stars...love it!...The 502HD Manfrotto tripod head is solid....This one was a good fit because it is a lot of solid product for not much money, and it has a flat base so I could adapt it to an existing set of tripod legs rather than buy a video tripod that uses a bowl."

This B&H Kit includes a Manfrotto MVH500AH Flat Base Fluid Head, Manfrotto MT190XPRO3 Tripod Legs, and a Padded Carrying Case for storage and transport. This kit is assembled to provide you a ready-to-go tripod package for shooting with available HDSLRs and compact camcorders. The fluid head is lightweight at just over 2 pounds, with professional features found in larger heads. It supports up to 11 pounds of camera and accessories. The head features a side lock mounting system, which combines the ease of a quick release system with the balance adjustment of a sliding baseplate system. The included, long, sliding balance plate provides extra balancing length compared to the standard length plate.

The MT190XPRO3 legs are the Pro version of the 190X tripod legs, which allows you to easily change the orientation of the center column from vertical to horizontal without disassembling the tripod. This feature can be useful for setting up shots that require the camera to point straight down, which the fluid head cannot accomplish on its own. The legs support 11 pounds, which will support the weight of the fluid head and just under 9 pounds of camera and accessories. The legs feature a center column, and extending the legs and center column fully, provides over five feet of height. The center column features a 3-facetted design to counteract twist and rotation. The legs are independently adjustable with independent leg spread, and pre-set leg angles, which is useful when shooting on uneven terrain, stairs, or in cramped locations. The rubber feet provide a sure grip indoors and out, and the flip locks make adjusting the leg length a quick process. The included padded tripod case provides you an easy way to store, protect, and transport your tripod to and from shoots.

The MVH500AH Fluid Video Head with Flat Base from Manfrotto is designed with a wide platform, optimal for HDSLR camera bodies. Smooth and precise, it has a maximum weight load of 11 lb and professional quality fluid cartridges on both its pan and tilt axes. It has a pre-set spring-loaded counterbalance of 5.3 lb, its lateral tilt range is -70°/+90° and it provides 360° panning rotation.

The side lock system on the MVH500AH allows the camera and sliding QR plate to click quickly into the head from above, instead of needing to be aligned and slid in from the back. This makes it easier and safer to mount your camera on this head. The head attaches to a tripod via a 3/8"-16 thread and includes a 500PLONG sliding balance plate with a captive 1/4"-20 tie-down screw and a 3/8"-16 adapter bushing. It also provides an Easy Link 3/8" connector on the side of the head to attach accessories such as a video monitor.

B&H # MA504HD MFR # 504HD

The Manfrotto 504HD Fluid Video Head introduces a revolutionary new design that improves performance while reducing weight, as well as offering a soupçon of style. The head's patented Bridging Technology allows for a wider top plate and longer sliding plate that add stability and balance to a set of state-of-the-art professional features. With its ability to support up to 16.5 lbs, the 504HD can be used with a variety of video and photo cameras. The newly designed counterbalance system includes four presets--from 0 to 16.5 lbs--enabling proper balance no matter what the camera's size or weight.

At the same time, redesigned variable friction components--with clearly marked degree scales and vibration-free movement--bring new levels of fine tuning to your tilts and pans. An illuminated leveling bubble keeps horizons from tilting, even in the dark, while independent disc-brake locks make sure the head stays secure when at rest.

Whether you're using a pro camcorder or a highly accessorized video DSLR on a rod/rail system, the 504HD takes some of the strain off your support rig by providing two 3/8" threads integrated into the sides of the top plate. These Easy Link Connectors allow attachment of monitors, arms, and other accessories directly to the head, making the camera less top-heavy while reducing setup time. All while being oh-so-stylish!

This kit is assembled to provide you a ready-to-go tripod package for shooting with available HDSLRs and compact camcorders. The fluid head is lightweight at just over 2 pounds, with professional features found in larger heads. It supports up to 11 pounds of camera and accessories. The head features a side lock mounting system, which combines the ease of a quick release system with the balance adjustment of a sliding baseplate system. The included, long, sliding balance plate provides extra balancing length compared to the standard length plate.

The legs feature a compact 4-leg section design, with aluminum legs and an aluminum center column that can change orientation from vertical to horizontal without disassembling the tripod. This feature can be useful for setting up shots that require the camera to point straight down, which the fluid head cannot accomplish on its own. The legs support 15.4 pounds, which will support the weight of the fluid head and up to 11 pounds of camera and accessories. The legs feature a center column for additional height adjustment. Extending the legs and center column fully provides over 5 feet of height. The center column features a 3-facetted design to counteract twist and rotation. The legs are independently adjustable with independent leg spread and pre-set leg angles, which is useful when shooting on uneven terrain, stairs, or in cramped locations. The leg locks require only one hand to open or close, and when closed the locks increase the rigidity of the legs more than with traditional lever locks. Long, padded, foam grips on 2 of the legs cushion your grip and insulate your hands when working with the tripod in the extremes of temperature.

A bubble level is incorporated into a rotating platform that is built into the top casting of the legs. This allows you to move the bubble around to where you can see it easily, and not have to crane your head around the tripod to find the bubble level, as is necessary with tripods with a fixed position bubble level. The legs feature rubber feet, which provide a sure grip indoors and out. The included padded tripod case provides you an easy way to store, protect, and transport your tripod to and from shoots.

"Love it...Works OK...I am using it for a documentary film, shot on a DSLR, and the head (and Manfrotto 190X tripod) is proving itself to be a reliable workhorse....Since the set screw does not match the bottom of the recess when the head is screwed down tight, it allows head to rotate OFF the tripod, which first makes panning WAAY too loose and possibly leads to a dropped scope or camera/lens."

The Manfrotto MH055M8-Q5 Photo-Movie Tripod Head offers optimal function for still photo shooting as well as videography. Primarily designed for DSLR cameras with movie shooting ability, the tripod head features a Photo-Movie selector to quickly switch between the 2 modes.

In Photo mode, the MH055M8-Q5 head offers free movement in all directions just like a typical ball head. Equipped with fluid cartridges and an adjustable counter balance control, the tripod head provides precise, smooth, and controlled movement.

In video mode, the head restricts all-direction movement to precise pan-and-tilt operation, which is just perfect for videography. The MH055M8-Q5 head comes with a pan bar and offers fluid movement along with friction control. The pan bar is reversible for right- or left-hand users and can be quickly detached. An included rest clip allows the pan bar to be attached to a tripod leg after being removed. A Q5 quick-release plate is included.

B&H # MAVHN8AHUS MFR # MVHN8AHUS

The Manfrotto Nitrotech N8 Video Head features an innovative, continuous counterbalance system based on a nitrogen-piston mechanism. Unlike heads with stepped levels of counterbalance, the Nitrotech N8 can be precisely adjusted to the weight of your camera rig. Adjust the counterbalance by twisting the knob on the left side towards the front of the head. The knob itself can be extended with a pull, adding room useful with a wider camera. With a maximum payload capacity of 17.6 pounds, the Nitrotech N8 is designed to be used with a variety of video or DSLR/MFT camera rigs. This 75mm flat-base head can be used with a half-ball adapter (available separately) for maximum flexibility in mounting to tripods, sliders, hi-hats, or other supports.

The Nitrotech N8 includes several pro-style features for reliable, efficient use of the head. The included camera mounting plate locks in from the side, and it has a sliding design to help balance the rig on the head. Smooth panning and tilting moves are enabled by the Nitrotech N8's variable fluid drag systems. A push-button illuminated bubble at the rear of the head lets you see at a glance if the head is leveled. Unlike some other Manfrotto heads, the N8's controls are on the left side of the head, freeing your right hand to operate the panhandle.

Looking to lessen the weight of accessories on your camera rig? Attach your monitor, rangefinder, light, flag, etc. to the 3/8"-threaded Easy Link Connector built into the side of the Nitrotech N8. This transfers the weight of the accessory away from the camera and to the head, making the camera less top-heavy.

B&H # MAMVH400AHUS MFR # MVH400AHUS

The Befree Live Video Head is Manfrotto's first traveler-style fluid video head. Supporting up to 8.8 lb loads, it's suitable across a large variety of applications. At the same time, its minimalist, compact design makes it ideal for mobile video applications, such as vlogging. This head features a 40mm flat base with a 3/8"-16 mounting thread. Although compatible with any 3/8"-16 flat base tripod, it's best used with equally compact photo tripods and monopods that offer a matching 40mm base. Among these is a variety of Manfrotto Befree and Element tripods and monopods. Many of them come with a ball head, but the ball head can be removed to reveal a 40mm flat base.

The Befree Live Video Head offers pan and tilt functionality and two independent knobs for controlling pan and tilt drag separately. A Manfrotto 501PL sliding quick release plate is included and can be released by another knob on top. A pan bar is also supplied and is removable to allow even more portability.

"Would buy again...This is perfect....Seriously don't, honestly just buy the non-video version, or get the Manfrotto video monopod which is (insert fire emoji here)....Also when adjusting the panning thumb screw it will cause the position to shift slightly, not super annoying but when doing small adjustments or getting perfect symmetry I found I had to compensate for the shift when tightening the thumb screw by move off center, it took a few guess and checks to get it right."

B&H # MAVHN12AHUS MFR # MVHN12AHUS

The Manfrotto Nitrotech N12 Video Head features an innovative, continuous counterbalance system based on a nitrogen-piston mechanism. Unlike heads with stepped levels of counterbalance, the Nitrotech N12 can be precisely adjusted to the weight of your camera rig. Adjust the counterbalance by twisting the knob on the left side towards the front of the head. The knob itself can be extended with a pull, adding room useful with a wider camera. With a maximum payload capacity of 26.4 pounds, the Nitrotech N12 is designed to be used with a variety of video or DSLR/MFT camera rigs. This 75mm flat-base head can be used with a half-ball adapter (available separately) for maximum flexibility in mounting to tripods, sliders, hi-hats, or other supports.

The Nitrotech N12 includes several pro-style features for reliable, efficient use of the head. The included camera mounting plate locks in from the side, and it has a sliding design to help balance the rig on the head. Smooth panning and tilting moves are enabled by the Nitrotech N12's variable fluid drag systems. A push-button illuminated bubble at the rear of the head lets you see at a glance if the head is leveled. Unlike some other Manfrotto heads, the N12's controls are on the left side of the head, freeing your right hand to operate the panhandle.

Looking to lessen the weight of accessories on your camera rig? Attach your monitor, rangefinder, light, flag, etc. to the 3/8"-threaded Easy Link Connector built into the side of the Nitrotech N12. This transfers the weight of the accessory away from the camera and to the head, making the camera less top-heavy.

"Love it....Nice Head...I just got the Manfrotto Nitrotech N12 for my 100mm binoscope....The counterweight mechanism works perfectly with smooth panning all the way up to Zenith with minimum backlash (you have to mount the scope backwards on the head to reach Zenith) Highly recommended."
