The Manfrotto MVM500A is a lightweight, fluid monopod with a specially adapted 500 video head. The innovative Bubble Level is built into the base of the monopod, which will give you incredibly smooth panning. Excellent compactness in folded form thanks to three sliding sections. The patented liquid monopod is equipped with an extended platform for HDSLR-type cameras, and a sliding platform allows you to balance the camera when changing lenses. Liquid monopod provides smooth shooting and precise control of equipment weighing up to 5 kg. Faster, easier and safer to use: the side lock allows the camera with a QR pad to be quickly fixed to the head from above, instead of having to align and slide out from behind. No auxiliary clips are required. The side lock system also allows you to quickly and easily lift and remove the camera from the head. There is one 3/8 ”Easy Link connector for installing a viewing monitor or other accessories.
