Supports
Technological evolution is profoundly changing videography
and its workflow.
Camcorder performance continues to improve while
camcorders shrink in size and become more affordable. In
parallel, the latest HDSLRs combine top quality video with
proven photographic capabilities. As a result, an increasing
number of new users are picking up cameras, joining our
world and producing fantastic results. HDSLR cameras and
the latest interchangeable lens camcorders are also bringing
about new demands in terms of support and accessory
equipment: Manfrotto Video Products are answering these
demands. Manfrotto has started offering new electronic
devices to make the videographer’s job easier, supporting
him with traditional support systems that are all backed up
by a complete range of accessories: from video camera

and HDSLR remote controls to bags and carrying solutions.
These are exciting times for Manfrotto: the increasing fusion
of video and photo equipment and user crossover between
the two worlds let us apply our experience, knowledge and
leadership from the photographic sector to videography to an
even greater extent. Collaborating with some of the greatest
names in film and video, we’re developing well-designed,
high-performance, top-quality innovative products that meet
and exceed the expectations of our most demanding expert
users and also help set the pace of technological evolution.
We hope you find the catalogue inspiring and useful.

Video technology has changed radically in recent years, with a quick succession of ever lighter,
more compact cameras launched. These cameras have in turn led to new ways of filming, allowing
one-man units to produce results that only a few short years ago would have required a full crew.
Video is moving to a new dimension, Bridging TechnologyTM heads help you cross over!
The Bridging TechnologyTM range is a key element in Manfrotto’s response to these
changes in the video sector. The ergonomic and technical characteristics of our Bridging
TechnologyTM series are the result of our expertise in producing lightweight camera
supports. The extended range offers ideal support across the full spectrum of “new” video
cameras, providing a perfect match for the latest camcorders, HDSLRs and even 3D rigs,
with each individual head designed and engineered to help videographers get the best
possible results from HD camera equipment.

526 PRO FLUID VIDEO HEAD - 100MM HALF BALL
The 526 is a professional, heavy duty, fluid head aimed at high-end ENG and
EFP, with a feature set designed to allow cameramen to work quickly and
easily under pressure. For example, the 526’s large control knobs for tilt/pan
lock and tilt drag are all located on the left side of the head for single-handed
adjustment, and all the controls are rubber-padded for better grip. The 526 has
a very precise fluid drag system with three drag level settings (low, medium and
high, numbered 1, 2 and 3 respectively). Drag setting 0 switches off the drag
for snap-pans/tilts. Counterbalance is via a continuously adjustable spring for
different camera weights.

TRIPODS
The Manfrotto video tripod range covers a wide variety of applications and user needs, offering both twin-leg and
single-leg tripods, with traditional video half-bowl or flat-base head attachments, as well as hybrid video/photo
innovations like the MDeVe leveling column. Our tripods are assembled from high-performance components made in
carefully chosen raw materials such as carbon fiber, aluminum, magnesium and high-quality technopolymers. When
choosing the right tripod, key factors to take into account include the camera setup you need to support and the video
head you’ll be matching with the tripod, the specific application and environment in which your kit will be used, and
characteristics such as compactness, extended height, weight and leg angle settings.
MDEVE tripods are where Manfrotto’s video know-how and our long experience in photography meet: our R&D team
realized that video supports could benefit from some of the main advantages of photo tripods. They took the lightweight,
torsion-resistant, single carbon/aluminum tube leg structure of the photo tripod, with its easily extensible center column,
and built a new video-ready 50mm half ball leveling system at the top of the center column. Locked and unlocked via
the (detachable) rotating grip at the bottom of the column, the MDeVe system allows the operator to level the camera
without needing to make micro adjustments to each individual tripod leg.
The result is a tripod that’s as quick to set up as a true photo tripod, but has the fine leveling and torsion resistance
demanded by video. MDeVe tripods are ideally suited to use with lightweight camera equipment and in situations where
set-up speed is of the essence.
Center column with built-in 50mm
half ball locked using the rotating grip
located at the bottom of the center
column. Tilt range: +15°/-15°.

MONOPODS
fixed
fixed
55
When shooting space is limited, when the amount and weight
of equipment has to be kept to a minimum, or when set-up
speed is of primary importance, a monopod is often the best
solution to helping support a video camera and reduce camera
shake. Monopods combine flexibility with high performance
and fluidity, and can be useful in a vast range of situations and
locations, many of which would be unsuitable for a tripod.
C.O.G.
FLUID MONOPODS are a Manfrotto world-first: a patented
system designed to help videographers obtain superior image
quality from the kind of fluid camera movements unachievable
with a standard monopod. An innovative fluid cartridge is
incorporated in the base of the monopod to make panoramic
rotations of the camera as smooth and judder-free as possible.
The monopod base also has three retractable feet, which give
it firmer footing and help keep the camera stable and reduce
unwanted tilt.
MVM500A
FLUID VIDEO MONOPOD WITH SLIDING PLATE HEAD
The key feature of this monopods family
is the fluid cartridge incorporated into
the base that gives you an incredibly
smooth panning action.
The three retractable feet ensure a firm
footing and a great compactness while
folded.
The MVM500A is a fluid monopod with a specially adapted 500 video head
attached. Combining the flexibility, reduced weight and innovative fluid pan
cartridge of the monopod with the features of the head – its counterbalance
system, tilt fluidity and locking, fast and secure side lock plate system, accessory
Easy Link and pan bar – helps you get better footage from your camera than you
would have thought possible with a monopod. Supplied with retractable feet.

SYMPLA FIG RIG SYSTEM
Hybrid DSLR cameras and ever-smaller, lighter camcorders
with interchangeable lenses offer many advantages and
opportunities, but have also introduced new problems to
solve: much of the latest camera equipment doesn’t have
the ergonomic shape needed for steady, shoulder-mounted
or hand-held footage. Sympla is Manfrotto’s solution to these
problems: a modular “ready to go” video rig system that
extends and complements new cameras, enables stable
support and framing and supports essential accessories.
MVA511WK-1 SHOULDER MOUNTED RIG
This rig allows support of camera equipment on your shoulder, with swivel-joint handles for perfect control and flexibility. The Shoulder Mounted Rig is ideal for use with
HDSLRs and interchangeable lens camcorders, featuring fast camera connection thanks to the sliding plate with quick release. The Variable Plate is one of the most
important component of the rig. This element permits to quickly adjust the position of the camera in combination with all the other accessories used, as the mattebox.
The video equipment, such as HDSLR or Camcorder, can be easily controlled accessorizing this rig with the new HDSLR Remote Controls (ref. MVR911ECCN pag. 38
and MVR911EJCN pag.40). They put camera functions at your fingertips while letting you keep a firm grip on both handles.
Kit comprises: Shoulder Mount, Shoulder Pad, 300mm Rods (4), Variable Plate, 160mm H-Offset, Adjustable Handles, Spacers for handles (2), Clips (2), Rod Connectors
(2), Light Counterweight, Spacer for Counterweight with adaptor

MVA525W RC2 MOUNT
MVA518W ADJUSTABLE HANDLES
The RC2 mount is a lightweight solution in order to combine video equipment
such as HDSLRs or light camcorders, with rail system. Thanks to its design, it is
possible to adjust the operating height of the camera in two different positions,
depending on the size of the body and the dimension of the lens. The RC2 quick
release plate allows fast and secure connection between the camera and the rig.
Sympla Adjustable Handles are fitted on a Universal Mount by two arms that
can be angled independently. The handles are mounted on pivoting ball joints
for easier adjustment: a twist of the single locking dial on each handle loosens
or blocks all movement, allowing them to be rotated freely and quickly set at the
exact position and angle required. The handles can be set in customary vertical
or near-vertical positions, but also horizontally like motorbike handlebars. When
a Sympla rig is mounted on a video head, the handles can be used as double
pan bars.
Thanks to the Universal Mount, the Adjustable Handles can be easily removed
and inverted to the upside down configuration.
The PVC-free Adjustable Handles are supplied with two metal spacers that can
be fitted to lengthen the arms. The same spacers also adapt the handles for use
with Manfrotto’s clamp and joystick remote control units.

MVA514W LENS SUPPORT
The Sympla Lens Support has a rubber-coated V-profile element that can be raised until it rests solidly against the lens in order to stop it from vibrating when the lens
L-bracket is being used to connect the camera to Sympla. A repositionable ratchet locking lever blocks height adjustment.
• Height range: 0 to 30mm (1.18“). For a greater height range, an additional Sympla V-Offset can be used.
• Weight: 0,33kg (0.73lb)
80mm - 3,2in
MVA517W UNIVERSAL MOUNT
MVA519S 80MM H-OFFSET
The Universal Mount has an “open hook” design, which allows it to be inserted
and hung on the Sympla rails from below, even between other elements that
have already been positioned. Because it’s self-supporting even when unlocked,
it stays safely attached to the rails at all times. A single, repositionable locking
lever conveniently blocks the Universal Mount solidly against both rails with one
movement. The Universal Mount is extremely versatile, thanks to its 4 x 3/8”
female threads and 2 x 1/4” female threads, which can be used to attach arms,
adaptors and other components and accessories.
The H-Offset is normally used to join an off-center Shoulder Mount to a set of
rails directly in front of the camera operator, so that the camera viewfinder or
LCD screen can be more comfortably positioned and the weight of the camera
and rig more ergonomically distributed.

REMOTE CONTROLS
Manfrotto remote control units put the most important commands of market leading video cameras, HDSLRs and
lenses at your finger-tips. The range includes the world’s first true electronic HDSLR remote controls - connected to
the camera body via USB cable. They directly interface with camera and lens firmware protocols for optimum control
over functions including focus, record start & stop, photo/video switching and shutter release, live view, digital zoom,
aperture and exposure, ISO and more besides. Remote control unit firmware can be updated via USB.
Our remote control range includes both pan-bar and clamp-on models:
- pan-bar versions fit directly on Manfrotto fluid video heads and allow the cameraman to operate both head
movement and camera features. He commands with one hand without having to touch the camera itself, which
helps eliminate camera shake.
- Clamp-on versions are incredibly compact and can be attached to tubes, pipes, tabletops, Fig Rigs, handlebars
and more. By extending the USB cable between the camera and the remote, clamp-on versions can be ideally suited
for longer distance control, as slider or crane applications.
Both types of remote control are compatible with SYMPLA rigs and our Bridging TechnologyTM head range.
REMOTE CONTROLS FOR HDSLR A brand new range of Manfrotto remote controls for Canon HDSLRs promises a real
innovation in the field of HDSLR filming – electronic remote control that works by interfacing with camera and lens
firmware.
MVR911ECCN CLAMP-ON HDSLR
REMOTE CONTROL for Canon
By interfacing directly with camera protocol via USB, the clamp-on electronic
remote allows focus operations and main camera functions to be controlled
from an extremely compact unit that attaches to a Sympla grip or other bar/pipe,
remotely and without direct contact with the camera lens. This means lenses
can be swapped easily without adjustment, camera movement is reduced to a
minimum, and one-man camera operation is easier. In- and out- focus points
and focusing speed can be set, auto-focus used, recording started & stopped,
still images taken, and more besides. Fingertip control of key camera functions
without moving the hand from the Sympla handles makes support more stable
and secure.

MVR911EJCN JOYSTICK HDSLR DELUXE
REMOTE CONTROL for Canon
The Deluxe Remote Control is designed to be used as one of the hand grips of
a Sympla shoulder support, where it means that a single camera operator can
properly support the weight of the camera and rig to ensure smooth, accurate
framing and movement, while also controlling all camera functions, without
removing either hand from the rig. The Deluxe version can also be used handheld and away from the camera and its support, it can be attached to video head
pan bars or set up in any number of alternative configurations.
It electronically controls focus and both main and advanced camera operations
and settings. The LCD screen on Manfrotto’s Deluxe version remote relays
general information from the camera, such as battery charge level, white balance
temperature and memory card status – especially useful if the camera’s on-body
screen is inaccessible.

a 100mm half-bowl, adjustable leg angles to mount the camera in the tightest
or lowest of locations and thanks to the built-in spreader you can simply use
the 529B on any even surface. The feet are rubber-padded to protect delicate
surfaces and have a hole so that the 529B can be screwed to a ladder, applebox or a sheet of wood.
Recommended heads:

Ø 75-60mm half bowl for quick leveling. The leg angle selector allows users
to adjust operating height as needed. Its aluminum casting components make
it a sturdy and reliable solution. It also includes the MVA060T adapter which
converts the 75mm into a 60mm half bowl.

401N QUICK ACTION STRAP
A quick and easy accessory for carrying your tripod when walking, hiking, cycling or just getting from shoot to shoot. Use the shorter straps to fasten the padded 401N
to one of the legs of your tripod, bind the remaining legs together using the longer adjustable quick release straps, sliding the tripod over your shoulder and you’re
ready to go, with your hands free to grab those vital last minute items. The padding helps hold the tripod in place and protects your back from bruises and chaffing.
The 401N even stays attached to your tripod when shooting (all you need to do is release the longer quick release straps so you can maneuver and position all three legs), so
you’re always ready to capture the images you want, but also always ready to move off again to the next location.

C.O.G.: Center Of Gravity is the weighted average location of all the mass in a body. Depending on the dimensions of the camera,
the distance from the plate to the C.O.G. will be longer or shorter. Lightweight/compact cameras and HDSLRs will have a shorter
distance from the plate to the C.O.G and bigger cameras will have a longer distance from plate to C.O.G. Video head performance is measured with different distances of COG according to the load capacity of the head.
We use two standard C.O.G. measurements:
- @ 55mm for Ø60-75mm half bowl heads 701HDV, MVH500A(H), 501HDV, MVH502A(H), 504HD
- @ 125mm for Ø100mm half bowl heads (509HD, 526)

CBS is our Counterbalance System; a fundamental part of what makes our video heads such useful video tools. The principal
function of CBS is to cancel out the slow falling effect seen in video footage when the videocamera’s own weight causes it to
tilt forward or backward on an unbalanced video head. CBS ensures that the cameraman need only apply minimal effort to the
head’s pan bar to move the camera precisely and smoothly.
3 stages
FDS is a friction system used across the Manfrotto video head and monopod ranges, based on specially developed cartridges that
make movements fluid and help stop unwanted vibrations (such as those from the video operator’s own hand) being transmitted. Our
range uses two types of FDS: fixed and variable. Variable FDS allows you to regulate and control the level of friction applied based
on the type and style of video you’re shooting, on the weight of your camera equipment and on climatic conditions and temperature.
Our patented electronic system allows you to record the position at which a particular equipment set-up is perfectly balanced, and
then recall that position easily any time you need to use the same equipment again.

Technological evolution is profoundly changing videography
and its workflow.
Camcorder performance continues to improve while
camcorders shrink in size and become more affordable. In
parallel, the latest HDSLRs combine top quality video with
proven photographic capabilities. As a result, an increasing
number of new users are picking up cameras, joining our
world and producing fantastic results. HDSLR cameras and
the latest interchangeable lens camcorders are also bringing
about new demands in terms of support and accessory
equipment: Manfrotto Video Products are answering these
demands. Manfrotto has started offering new electronic
devices to make the videographer’s job easier, supporting
him with traditional support systems that are all backed up
by a complete range of accessories: from video camera

and HDSLR remote controls to bags and carrying solutions.
These are exciting times for Manfrotto: the increasing fusion
of video and photo equipment and user crossover between
the two worlds let us apply our experience, knowledge and
leadership from the photographic sector to videography to an
even greater extent. Collaborating with some of the greatest
names in film and video, we’re developing well-designed,
high-performance, top-quality innovative products that meet
and exceed the expectations of our most demanding expert
users and also help set the pace of technological evolution.
We hope you find the catalogue inspiring and useful.
