A lovely fluid movement but my old one was knackered!

    Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Strong Clamp

A nice fluid head which is relatively lightweight compared with other alternatives. Well made and thought through. Only slight downside if the use of a proprietary mount and plate rather than Arca Swiss.

    Durable, Great Features

Bought this to replace my 700RC2 head, the MVH500AH is certainly miles better! You get what you pay for. The sprit level feature is pretty accurate for panning.
