Manfrotto MVK500C overview

  • 1Description

The MVH500A Half Ball Fluid Head & 535 Tripod with Carrying Bag from Manfrotto includes a 60mm half ball fluid video head, a 75mm bowl tripod, a 75mm to 60mm bowl adapter, and a black and red over-the-shoulder carrying bag. The bowl adapter will allow the fluid head to fit on the tripod. The carrying bag is padded, has a zipper running along its full length, and fits the tripod and the 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" thread on the side for attaching accessories, such as a video monitor.

    Manfrotto MVK500C reviews

    MVH500A Half Ball Fluid Head & 535 Tripod with Carrying Bag is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great system! I use this set up with a Canon HF G10 with several accessories attached and it performs perfectly. I use it a lot for run and gun shooting and it is very maneuverable. The legs are easy to open and close, which is important when time is of the essence. The legs are also lightweight, heavy duty, and offer great support. The fluid head offers a wide range of angles and works great for the lighter prosumer camcorders out on todays market. I believe the MVH500A will also work well with heavier professional camcorders. No complaints here.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Canon XA20 owners take note! The fluid head is supplied with the LONG plate, which makes it impossible to change the battery of an Canon XA20 without removing the camera from the tripod, then unscrewing the plate from the camera. I don't like the thought of doing that in the field. I have ordered the short plate and assume that will eliminate the problem, but that's an extra expense!THE GOAL: A LIGHTWEIGHT SETUP ... This package with the XA20 (handle attached), a Sennheiser shotgun mike with K6 powering module, an LCD hood, a lens hood, and an Auray shock mount weighs in at just 11-1/4 pounds. My old Bogen tripod and head alone weigh two pounds more than that!! I am pleased.The tripod seems very stable based on preliminary tests. It should come with a strap that lets you carry it around more easily from shot to shot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive but worth it!! Classic manfrotto. Sturdy, light, great fluid head. I like this head system because it is easily leveled without having to fuss too much with the legs.
