Manfrotto’s new MVH502 fluid head replaces its popular 501 head, but has been completely redesigned to use Manfrotto’s bridging technology.
It will carry up to 4kg, be available either with a flat base or an integral 75mm ball, and should ship by April. Features include: a larger camera base; larger sliding plate; fixed counterbalance; and two 3/8-inch threads for fixing accessories. A complete kit, with tripod legs, should cost about £450.
