Manfrotto Video Supports

Technological evolution is profoundly changing videography.

Camcorder performance improves, even as camcorders themselves shrink in size and become more affordable; meanwhile, the latest HDSLRs combine top quality video with proven photographic capabilities. As a result, more and more new users are picking up cameras, joining our world and producing fantastic results.

HDSLR cameras and the latest interchangeable lens camcorders make new demands of support and accessory equipment too, demands answered by Manfrotto Video

Products. Manfrotto offer both traditional support systems and innovative alternative supports for video, all backed up by a complete range of accessories ranging from video camera and HDSLR remote controls to bags and carrying solutions.

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 Technology

TM

heads help you cross over!

The Bridging Technology

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°.

Single tube leg profile made of round- section aluminum or carbon fiber.

Four different leg angle settings.

MONOPODS

C.O.G.

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.

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 a firmer footing, helping to keep the camera stable and reduce unwanted tilt.

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.

MVM500A FLuID VIDEO MONOPOD WITH 500 HEAD

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 lens offer many advantages and opportunities, but also bring new problems to solve: much of the latest camera equipment doesn’t have the ergonomic form needed for steady shoulder-mounted or hand-held footage.

Sympla is Manfrotto’s solution to those problems: a modular video rig system that extends and complements new cameras, allows for stable support and framing, and supports essential accessories. Offering versatility and high performance as well as comfort and safety, Sympla is designed to be much easier and faster set up than other solutions. Every component and assembly can be changed easily and fine-tuned quickly without any tool, giving you whatever you need to get the shot, the second you need it. Everything at your fingertip.

One of the key advantages of Sympla is its full compatibility with our video remote control or the revolutionary range of

HDSLRs camera remotes. The remotes fit Sympla handgrips, allowing precise control of framing and camera functions without moving your hands from the grip or your eyes from the viewfinder, helping you capture stable, usable, creative footage. And Sympla can quickly be extended: whether you start from one of our kits, or from single components, you can quickly build the exact rig you need for the shot.

MVA518W ADJuSTABLE HANDLES

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.

The Sympla Flexible Mattebox is designed for cameras with interchangeable lenses; fitted on a universal Mount, it slides backwards and forwards along Sympla rails, and has 50mm (1.96”) of vertical travel so that it can be aligned with lenses of different lengths and heights. The mattebox has an elasticated textile lens seal that fits common lens diameters, and is built around a 90° swivel joint, which rotates the mattebox out of the way for fast lens changes. The weight of the Flexible Mattebox is fully supported by the Sympla rails (not by the camera lens) reducing stress on the camera’s easily-damaged lens mount. Two 4x4” filters can be held in front of the lens –one of the filter holders rotates through 360 degrees, to allow a polarising (or graduated) filter to be angled correctly.

The concertina rubber light hood is opened or closed, partially or fully, in an instant. More versatile than the traditional French flag design, it can shield unwanted directional glare from any angle without blocking light from the rest of the scene; in many cases, that can make a direct difference to the f-stop that can be used. Because the hood is flexible in length, it’s universally compatible with lenses from wide-angle to tele. It packs flat for transportability and, when open, protects the lens against knocks and scrapes. Being made of rubber, it won’t hurt anyone who accidentally bumps into it… which means it’s much safer for use in crowded places or close to sporting events.

Another benefit of the flexible hood is that it can be used when shooting at an angle through glass: position the camera and extend and angle the hood so it forms a seal against the glass, thereby cutting out reflections. Repositionable ratchet locks on all movements.

MVA522 FIG RIG - SYMPLA ADAPTOR

Starting from standard Fig Rig, this accessory allows the user to assemble an universal Mount in the center of the wheel so that Sympla rails can be fitted.

MVA517W uNIVERSAL MOuNT

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.

• Construction: aluminum fusion for reliability and robustness.

• Weight: 0,29 kg (0.63 lbs)

FIG RIG

The Fig Rig is more than just a steady support. It is a frame on which to build your system. Your camera has only one hot-shoe for accessories, limiting you to one light or one monitor. With the Fig Rig, you can mount any number of accessories that are necessary for today’s cameras. Customize the Fig Rig to your liking. Manfrotto provides all the tools to allow you to create your own supporting system.

Each side of the camera bar is threaded with one 1/4”, 3/8” and 5/8” hole for additional accessory mounting.

A non-slip rubber pad provides stability when using the Fig Rig on a flat surface such as a table, floor or railing.

Supplied with a 501PL sliding QR plate allowing you to position and balance your camera. The plate system can be switched out with a variety of Manfrotto plate assemblies to best match your camera.

595CLA FIG RIG CLAMP

Clamp specifically designed for the Fig Rig. Supplied with 1/4” and 3/8” screws, and female 1/4”-3/8” adapter.

ON-CAMERA LIGHTS AND MONITORS: position your light or monitor anywhere around your camera, freeing you up to take it off your hot-shoe.

MICROPHONES: mount your shotgun mic anywhere around the camera.

595B FIG RIG

After years of using the Fig Rig on his award-winning films, Mike Figgis brought his idea to Manfrotto. An idea that is non-traditional in design, but purely simple and effective. The only modular system in the world to smoothly support the DV camera and act as a frame to mount all the accessories – including zoom controllers, mics, mixers, lights, monitors, arms...

A circular frame with a crossbar to mount most mini DV cameras, the Fig Rig becomes part of the body to produce smooth, steady travelling shots.

It is this very fact which is the secret to the Fig Rig. As the operator walks, his/her muscles and tendons absorb all the shocks, transferring only fluid movements to the camera. As there are no straps or harnesses attached to the Fig Rig, quick and wide movements can be made within the same shot, from ground-level to overhead, in one smooth movement. The camera, accessories and operator become one, allowing you to film scenes quickly and unobtrusively. With the Fig Rig your creativity is virtually limitless.

LOW-ANGLE STABILITY: quickly mount the Fig Rig to any 5/8” stud for either temporary storage of stable low-angle shots.

REMOTE CONTROLS

46

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 Technology

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.

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.

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.

Camcorder performance improves, even as camcorders themselves shrink in size and become more affordable; meanwhile, the latest HDSLRs combine top quality video with proven photographic capabilities. As a result, more and more new users are picking up cameras, joining our world and producing fantastic results.

HDSLR cameras and the latest interchangeable lens camcorders make new demands of support and accessory equipment too, demands answered by Manfrotto Video

Products. Manfrotto offer both traditional support systems and innovative alternative supports for video, all backed up by a complete range of accessories ranging from video camera and HDSLR remote controls to bags and carrying solutions.
