The lightweight fluid video system MVK500AM includes the fluid video head (60mm half ball) MVH500A and the twin leg video tripod MVT502AM (aluminum, middle spreader).

The MVH500A 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. MVH500A is supplied with a 60mm half ball video tripod mount and it also replaces the Manfrotto 701HDV video head. The 500 has professional fluid cartridges on both pan and tilt axes to ensure that every camera movement is smooth, controlled and precise. 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.

The 500 has a pre-set counterbalance of 2.4kg (5.3 lbs), but is able to support equipment of up to 5kg (11 lbs). The 500 has one Easy Link 3/8” connector to allow an external monitor or other accessory equipment to be fitted.

The MVT502AM video tripod is a traditional 2-stage, aluminium twin-tube video tripod that has professional features yet is designed to be intuitive, user-friendly and suited to lightweight applications. The MVT502AM has telescopic aluminium legs for compactness and reduced weight; its innovative ellipse-profile tubing with redesigned leg locking collars give it excellent levels of rigidity and stability. The first-stage spreader has improved ergonomics and ease of use, while the tripod’s rubber feet improve grip on all floor and ground surfaces. A rubber strap ensures easier, safer transport.

Excellent Price Excellent Performance

I picked this up before a road trip to Arizona and I recently used it with a RED Scarlet at a rodeo and it performed perfectly. It's very easy to level and the drag control is easy to dial in. My one gripe is the leg releases, they got a little clogged with dust and are a bit cheap feeling. The drop-in quick release is really useful. I kind of prefer separated legs, but at no point did I feel that the Scarlet was at risk so sometimes the spreader offers some nice peace of mind. I think for the price it's an excellent purchase.
