The head features a wider than a standard platform to provide better support for DSLRs. The maximum load capacity is 5 kg. 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 2.4 kg. 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 extends in two stages from 46.5 to 139 cm at the release of flip-lever lock clamps. Additionally, a centre-column is adjustable up and down to extend the maximum height to 164 cm. The centre-column can also be removed entirely and used handheld with a camera still attached. The tripod legs are made of carbon fibre, which is lightweight in comparison to aluminium, absorbs vibrations better, and is immune to corrosion from water, including salt-water.
The Manfrotto MVH500AH Fluid Video Head with Flat Base is designed with a wide platform, optimal for HDSLR camera bodies.

It has a pre-set spring-loaded counterbalance of 2 kg, 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.
