This B&H Kit includes a Manfrotto MVH500AH Flat Base Fluid Head, 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 legs feature a compact 4-leg section design, with carbon fiber 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.

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.

Manfrotto MVH500AH Fluid Video Head with Flat Base

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 load capacity of 17.6 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.

The MVH500AH is made from aluminum alloy, measures 3.74" high and provides a bubble level and precision control handle.

Manfrotto MT190CXPRO4 Carbon Fiber Tripod

The black, redesigned MT190CXPRO4 Carbon Fiber Tripod from Manfrotto builds on the success and popularity of the previous 190 series with professional hardware and convenience features that make it even easier to use than its predecessor. When the three leg sections and center column are fully extended, the tripod reaches a maximum height of 63", and its load capacity of 33 lb makes it a good choice for larger cameras. The tripod weighs 3.6 lb, and folds down to 20.6" for transport.

Set up is faster than ever with Manfrotto's Quick Power Lock System that allows you to completely extend the tripod legs with just one hand. Once set up you can use the MT190CXPRO4's rapid center column in standard vertical mode or swing it into horizontal position like a boom with Manfrotto's 90° Column feature. Enlarged tabs on the individual leg angle selectors allow you to get down to only 3.2" for macro work with the column in horizontal mode. And once you're down there you can attach any of Manfrotto's flexible or articulated arms to hold lights or reflectors via the Easy Link plug built into the tripod's spider.

Convenience features include a bubble level that rotates so that you can see it easily regardless of the tripod's position. Finally, Manfrotto's insistence on form following function has yielded a tripod that you'll not only be happy to use but you'll be happy to be seen with, too.

Fast Setup with QPL
The Quick Power Lock (QPL) system is one of the most eye-catching and unique features of the redesigned 190. It is a strong, ultra fast, ergonomic locking system that allows for complete extension of the legs with one hand.
90° Column
One of the most innovative aspects of the 190 series is its compactness, which allows for easier portability. The redesigned patented 90° Column is accessible whenever you need it with simple one finger operation.
Easy Link Plug
The plug allows instant connection between tripod and accessories, such as LED lights for macro photography and DSLR video applications using Manfrotto articulated arms and brackets.
Rotating Leveling Bubble
The bubble is easy to read, whatever the shape of the head or however the tripod is positioned. Just rotate it towards you for easy viewing.
Leg Angle Selectors
Each leg has user selection of four angles to accommodate uneven ground or rough terrain. The selectors are manufactured according to most innovative ergonomic standards to prevent fingers and nails being trapped in the upper casting.

The staff's answer seems to contradict the answer of April 18, 2017 to a similar question, where a staff member says you have to level [not by the column] " the old fashioned way, one leg at a time".

question

After tightening tilt knob would this mvh500ah droop with celestron C5 spotter scope and DSLR total 9LB 2oz? mostly back heavy so I would slide the plate forward.I want to attach 2 3/8 screws that need to be 2-3/8 inches apart center to center is that possible with slot length?thanks
Asked by: frank o.
Amazing head for the money. Surprisingly smooth. Have used it with a Canon 7D MkII + 100-400MM Zoom (MkI). Approx. 5.5 pounds total. Tripod had vibration (due to wooden platform, people, sea breeze, who knows,) but got Sea Lions with acceptable pan smoothness later. I think you have 5.5 lb. spring, plus can compensate by tightening head rated for maybe 11 lbs.

Does the Manfrotto 520ballsh 75mm short half-ball ...

Does the Manfrotto 520ballsh 75mm short half-ball work on the MVH500AH fluid head?
Asked by: Charles
Yes. I have the Manfrotto MVH500AH flat base video head attached to a Manfrotto 520ballsh 75mm short half-ball mounted on a 75mm half-bowl tripod. I do not use any adapter between the video head and the half-ball. The video head flat base is slightly smaller in circumference than the flat top of the half- ball but the three set screws in the half-ball to prevent slipping anchor just fine against the flat base of the head. The video head stays securely on the half-ball with no twisting at all. When attached, you have to look very closely to even notice the slight difference in circumference. Works perfectly to level a camera for both video and photography.
