Manfrotto 501HDV fluid video head. With pan bar and long quick release plate.The 501HDV is the predecessor of the MVH502AH flat-based fluid video head. Unlike the MVH502AH, it was made by Manfrotto in Italy (not in China) and unlike the MVH502AH, it has a switchable balance compensation system so you can disengage the balance compensation spring. This is useful when you want to set up the levelling system by tilting the head forward so you can more clearly view the levelling bubble.
This example is in good refurbished condition as the photos show. There were some scuffs and scrapes to the paint that I have retouched.
The pan lever is scratched underneath where it has been pushed in against the clamping screw, but I have re-painted this area and it doesn't show or affect use. The quick release plate is a long version. The anti-rotation peg for the plate is missing, but these are available from Manfrotto Spares quite cheaply if you need one.
The plate is fitted with 1/4 inch camera attachment screw with a 3/8 inch adapter.
