Manfrotto have just released a replacement to their successful 701HDV video head;
The Manfrotto MVH500 which now sports Bridging Technology, bringing the entry-level fluid head up to date with the rest of their line up.
The MVH500 is available in two flavours, the MVH500AH flat base and MVH500A with 60mm half ball. The former makes it a great candidate for mounting on top of a slider. Whilst the latter makes it a great choice for low budget DSLR filmmakers looking for a cost effective fluid head.
