The MVMXPRO500 XPRO Monopod from Manfrotto is a 4-section aluminium video support equipped with Manfrotto’s FLUIDTECH base and a 500-series fluid tilt head.
A versatile kit for nearly any videographer or filmmaker, the MVMXPRO500 can often travel places tripods cannot, providing additional stability and supporting heavy equipment when required. The 4-section design, paired with an aluminium construction, results in an easy-to-transport setup weighing just 4.6 lb. With a maximum height of 79.9″ and a minimum height of just 30.7″, the MVMXPRO500 can be adjusted to suit users of varying heights and for various different tasks.
While the design of a monopod is relatively simple, the Manfrotto Monopod+ line utilizes some innovative features which make using the MVMXPRO500US fast and easy. The primary feature of the line is the inclusion of Manfrotto’s patented Power-Lock flip locks which snap open and closed to ensure fast operation and a tight, unyielding lock. The D-shaped leg sections have been designed not only to compliment the Power-Locks but also to prevent unwanted twisting between leg sections and increase the stability of the monopod. The integrated FLUIDTECH base utilizes a “3D” fluid cartridge which facilitates smooth pans and tilts from a single connection point. The cartridge may be locked vertically to isolate movement to only the 360° panning axis, allowing for smooth, level, uninterrupted rotation. While engaging the vertical lock may allow the monopod to stand, it does not support free-standing function and should not be left unattended when not in use.
