Manfrotto MH055M8-Q5 Overview

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-Video selector for quickly switching between the two 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 counterbalance 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 works well with videography. The MH055M8-Q5 head comes with a pan bar and offers fluid movement as well as friction control. The pan bar is reversible for right- or left-handed 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.

question

Hi, I want this product but, I need a compatible video-tripod for the Manfrotto MH055M8-Q5 Photo-Movie. I can only see photo-tripods compatible with this model head. I have a heavy camera. This model work with vdeo-tripod 546 GB1 or similar to that?
Asked by: Flavia
The Manfrotto MH055M8-Q5 Tripod Head connects to any tripod that has a standard 3/8 screw. You could use a tripod like the 755XB which has a 3/8 stud. You could also purchase the Manfrotto 546B, just as long as you also purchase the 520Ball 75mm adapter which will give you the 3/8 screw to connect the head.

Is it possible to attach Really Right stuff plate (similar to arca swiss plate) to Manfrotto Q5 QR plate ?
Asked by: Uday
This head works with 501PL style plates out of the box. It does not accept Arca Style plates. However, you could always install a Lever-Release Clamp like B&H # RERELESECLMP to the head. Once you have this installed you will be able to use usa Arca Style Plates. https://bhpho.to/2N120WI

I am not familiar with that particular tripod, but this will fit any tripod with a 3/8 screw (and with a bushing a tripod with a 1/4 screw - though it is a fairly heavy head so it needs to be on a sturdy tripod.
