  • 1Description

The MVH500AH Fluid Head & 755XB Tripod with Carrying Bag from Manfrotto includes a flat base fluid video head, a flat base 2-stage tripod, and a 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" and 3/8" camera screws, and the head has a 3/8" tripod mounting thread and a 3/8" thread on the side for attaching accessories, such as a video monitor.

The tripod features aluminum legs that extend in two stages from 16.3 to 55.1" at the release of flip-lever lock clamps. Additionally, a center-column is adjustable to extend the maximum height to 65". The center-column can also be removed entirely and used handheld with a camera still attached.

    Manfrotto MVH500AH,755XBK reviews

    MVH500AH Fluid Head & 755XB Tripod with Carrying Bag is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 31.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great kit for use with slider! I have a few Manfrotto setups. The 755XB sticks are AWESOME and I wish I had more of them. They allow you to get the height of a photo tripod with the leveling ability of a video tripod, which is awesome. The 500AH head is good too. I love the quick release, which lets you release from the top instead of having to slide the plate in. The head doesn't have as much adjustability as my larger 502 head, but it's smaller. I use this tripod with an Edelkrone SliderPlus in between the sticks and the head, and this setup is perfect for that. If this is your main tripod, I would spring for the 502 head. If you're going to use it with a slider, or you're looking for something a little smaller and less expensive, then look no further!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor manufacturing So far I have yet to really use the product because I've gotten two so far, and they've both had something broken or wrong with them. The first one the screw was bent that holds the camera plate on, and the second one the screw that holds the handle on is the wrong size and will not go in. Otherwise, with what I've been able to do with it has been good. I tried it out carefully so the camera didn't slide off when I received the first one and the movement is very fluid. It's easy to adjust all of the components and it's really stable. Pretty heavy if you want to use it for everyday shooting, but you want that in a video tripod.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made in Italy . Super Nice and Functiona First off this thing is tall I am 6'4 and still when this guy is extended at its full height with the camera on top it is impressive. I wouldn't be worried that the height isn't enough. This tripod is the perfect pair with the MVH500ah. It is is easy to adjust to make sure you are level without messing with the tripod legs. The Mvh500ah has super smooth panning and tiliting action. I really like it. This head is made in italy as well as the tripod. Manfrotto is the best quality always impressed by this manufacturer. Very well though out design.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tripod! Ordered this tripod because Manfrotto was having a rebate deal going on. Came with pretty much everything I needed for a very discounted price. I really love the ball fluid head. Makes for easy leveling in fast situations. The legs can go very high up for high angle shots or low for pretty much any use. The tripod fits very nicely in the great carrying case it comes with. The top-loading plate took a little bit to get used to but I actually like it better than front-loading ones. Overall I expected nothing less from Manfrotto. They're very well built and I think will last very long. I can't recommend it enough!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome lightweight tripod & affordable! I have a 504HD with an aluminum two stage tripod. It works great but heave and bulky to carry around. The carbon fiber legs were a little expensive but when this bad boy went on sale, I jumped the gun and bought this right away. Best decision I've made in a while. It's super light and the new 500 series head is super smooth. Maybe even better than the 504HD for the application I use (dslrs). Would recommend this for any event shooter!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice upgrade from the old model I use this tripod mainly for field shooting and this tripod collapses in every way imaginable. It is solid and easy to use. When fully broken down, it is light and small enough to carry with my camera bag, audio bag, and a couple of light stands. All at once. I've been using this for a couple weeks now and can't find anything I don't like a bout it. Probably my favorite thing about it is the leveling option. Makes shooting on uneven ground enjoyable.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for video - one small issue We use a Canon 6d for both video and stills; we purchased this head and tripod for that use. The fluid head is great - very smooth movement and panning. The quick release plate is great for video, but if you use the same camera to also shoot stills the long plate very much gets in the way. Its also held to the base of the camera with a large screw that requires a flat head screw driver to securely tighten so the plate doesn't move - your fingers aren't enough The ball head that the mount sits atop the tripod is very difficult to move to get it balanced. There isn't a release to make it fluid or easy to move - you have to force it to move. Because of this factor, I would not recommend this combination of mount, ball head and tripod to anyone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the professional or amateur I use this tripod for music videos, time lapse photography and long exposure photos. The stable legs are complimented well by the sturdy head. I use it with a Canon DSLR and have no worries about my camera falling or being unprotected, in fact, there is a hook on the tripod to hang a weight. It is an all around great product for amateurs and professionals alike.
