Manfrotto 501HDV Video Head+351MVCF Trpd.+ Bag
Inside the 501HDV is a powerful new feature that takes its inspiration from our top professional video head models – a fixed counterbalance spring (set for a typical weight of camera + accessories of 2.5kg) that helps ensure both smoother tilt movements and greater equipment safety even when tilt locks are inadvertently left off. The easy-to-reach on/off switch allows the counterbalance system to be disengaged or re-engaged for different filming setups. But from the outside, the first thing that you’ll notice about the new 501HDV video head is its updated design – completely retuned for much improved ergonomics with locks and knobs that allow a more solid grip and better fingertip control. The 501HDV inherits its separate pan and tilt locks, gradual tilt friction adjustment system, flat base (with standard 3/8” thread), quick release camera plate and repositionable pan bar from its successful predecessor.
The first two stage carbon fiber video tripod from Manfrotto, equipped with a 75 mm half bowl, which combine together a twin leg design for the first stage and a single leg design for the second stage of the tripod, all completed with a double spiked feet. Legs have two angles adjustment while if they have to be adjusted at any angle of 180° the tripod needs to be equipped with a mid level spreader. These technical solutions offer a tripod with a unrivalled torsion rigidity with substantial weight saving comparing his competitors. All above listed features plus the use of composite materials like aluminum, magnesium, carbon fiber and reinforced nylon plastic has generated the most innovative support solutions for DV and MINI DV and compact ENG cameras.
