This monopod is equipped with Manfrotto’s full fluid base (MVMXPROBASE) featuring the innovative FLUIDTECH system that makes Manfrotto XPRO Monopod+ the first of its kind on the market to feature 3D fluidity. The FLUIDTECH video base enables the ultimate shooting smoothness on pan, tilt and swivel for an expanded range of perspectives. The three retractable feet make it extremely portable when folded and allow the monopod to be easily carried everywhere. The new D-shaped aluminium tubes greatly improve anti-rotation resistance throughout the monopod, following the videographer’s rapid rotation movements. Combined with the Quick Power Lock (QPL) which strongly locks the lever onto the monopod tube’s flat side, this eliminates unwanted jerky movements.
The newly designed leg warmer guarantees exceptional grip and full footage control with a special version of the successful Manfrotto 500 video head The MVMXPRO500 exploits the MVH500AH’s powerful counterbalance system for managing heavier equipment such as interchangeable lens cameras, with a wider platform to support HDSLR bodies. It is extra-lightweight and compact, so you won’t even notice it’s in your kit bag, but you can always rely on it to carry up to an impressive 5kgs, blending strength with portability.
The combination of fluidity provided by both the 500 head and the FLUIDTECH base make this the perfect kit for demanding videographers who need clever, fast-to-set-up and easy to use support for their professional video footage. The camera quickly slots in from above thanks to the accessible side lock system (rather than a lock on the back) and it’s so secure there is no need for a secondary lock. The MVMXPRO500 has one Easy Link 3/8” connector to fit an external monitor or other accessories and it comes with the Manfrotto 500PLONG video camera plate. The MVMXPRO500 replaces the Manfrotto MVM500A
