Same characteristics as the MVH500A, but with a flat base mount with standard 3/8" thread. Ideal for tripod/slider/rig/crane application.

The lightweight fluid video system MVH500AH,755CX3K includes the fluid video head (flat base) MVH500AH and the MDeVe Carbon Fiber Tripod 755CX3.

The MVH500AH is a lightweight head with a wider platform for HDSLR bodies and the sliding plate travels to balance the latest interchangeable lens cameras. The entry-level 500 ensures smooth shots and fine control with up to 5kg (11 lbs) of equipment.

It's the most compact head in Manfrotto's successful Bridging Technology range and it also replaces the Manfrotto 701HDV video head.

Beautifully smooth shots: the 500 has professional fluid cartridges on both pan and tilt axes to ensure that every camera movement is smooth, controlled and precise.

Faster, easier and safer to use: the side lock system 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. No secondary safety lock is necessary. The side lock system also makes it quicker and simpler to lift the camera out of the head from above.
