he Manfrotto MVK500AM ALU Twin Leg Video Tripod System, which replaces the 701HDV, is a lightweight video head featuring a wider platform to accommodate both HDSLR and interchangeable lens camcorder, as well as a sliding plate that ensures the appropriate balance even when shooting with very long lenses.
The 500, the entry level of the Bridging Technology™ series, ensures smooth shots and fine control of up to 5kg of equipment. Its brand new side lock allows fast, secure and easy camera attachment.
The Fluid Video System, Lightweight with Side Lock is the ultimate video system for any professional. Designed to make even the trickiest job a cinch, this clever tripod with fluid video head has everything you need to work to the highest standard, even when you’re under pressure. And it’s super easy to transport. Its smart design includes a side lock feature, enabling you to slot your camera in from the top, rather than the back. This frees you up to get to work fast, and keeps your gear absolutely secure, so there’s no need for a secondary lock.
Fluid cartridges on both pan and tilt axis give you incredibly smooth movements, so jerking from one angle to the next is a thing of the past. Plus, this nifty tripod with fluid video head works with even awkward interchangeable lens cameras, and supports wider HDSLR bodies. It has a pre-set counterbalance of up to 2.4kg, but can support up to 5kg, giving you all the strength you need in a photo head. Not only that, it comes complete with its very own carry case, so you can pack things away in a jiffy at the end of the day.
This essential tripod with fluid video head even comes with a 9.5mm connector to easily pair with accessories, like an external monitor. The functional and innovative aluminium legs make it lightweight and compact when disassembled. When it’s up, secure leg locking keeps everything firmly in place, and rubber feet add to its stability, and a rubber strap secures the tripod once folded away, so you can be sure this handy stand is always safe, whether it’s in use or packed away.
