Features & Design

The side lock system on the MVH500AH 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. This makes it easier and safer to mount your camera on this head. The head attaches to a tripod via a 3/8″-16 thread and offers both a 1/4″-20 and 3/8″-16 camera attachment. It also provides an Easy Link 3/8″ connector on the side of the head to attach accessories such as a video monitor. The 500PLONG quick release plate is included with this head.
