The Manfrotto MVT502AM Video Tripod kit (MVK500AM) consists of the Manfrotto MVT502AM Video Tripod and the MVH500A Fluid Ball Head.

Perfect for videographers, filmmakers and broadcasters, the video tripod features a traditional lightweight 2-stage aluminium twin-tube construction with telescopic legs for reduced weight and maximum versatility.

Capable of extending to a maximum height of 154cm, the tripod incorporates ellipse-profile tubing and redesigned leg locking collars to provide improved stability and rigidity for consistently smooth and sharp shooting results.

A first-stage spreader features redesigned ergonomics for improved ease-of-use and further bolsters the tripods rigidness. Hard-wearing rubber feet at its base improves grip on all floor surfaces and provides additional vibration absorption to ensure maximum clarity for your footage.

The MVH500A Fluid Video Head with 60mm Half Ball works flawlessly with the tripod and is ideal for DSLR cameras and prosumer camcorders.

The flat, wide mounting plate provides a sturdy platform for DSLR camera bodies and supports a counter-balance weight of 2.4kg, with a 8kg max. capacity. Its sliding plate design caters for larger, front-heavy camera and lens combinations by allowing you to adjust the centre balance accordingly.

Fluid cartridges on both the pan and tilt axes feature a fixed drag design to deliver consistent, silky smooth, 360° panning and a spring loaded -70°/+90° range of lateral tilt.

The 60mm half ball can be utilised to fine-tune camera levelling and delivers perfect horizons when shooting on sloping or uneven ground.

The Manfrotto MVT502AM video tripod and MVH500A ball head kit (MVK500AM) includes a padded carry bag for easy storage and transportation.
