  • Excerpt: Having a second handle is a requiremen, not a luxury, for sports productions. This handle works just as advertised and the telescoping feature makes it just about perfect.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fits Well, Improves Tripod Function, Solid/Sturdy

Good with JVC 600

  • Excerpt: Works good with JVC 600. Likes: Smooth zoom, pretty responsive iris and focus adjustment. If you plan on using it with an adjustable pan bar like me then buy the clamp and extension cable. The only button that doesn't work for me is the standby button but that's not a big deal. Dislikes: the zoom control is better than the varizoom but not as good as a 5 pin control like on the bayonet type lenses.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fits Well

Using on a Manfrotto 501 head

Eric, B&H Photo
27 August 2012
  • Excerpt: This product works fine on a 501 head, but you have to take off the screw assembly that comes with it and use the screw assembly that came with your 501 head. The screw size is different and the grip part that is sawtooth shaped is also different, but the hole for the pole is the same size. So don't buy for the 501 head unless you already have an assembly you can use for this handle. The handle extends nicely, as it should.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly

An Arm Saver

17 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Palm Sunday I was shooting in a large auditorium with my camera perched on an 8ft high tripod. For an hour and ten minutes I was doing close following of a speaker on the stage. Reaching up above my head to the pan bar that came with my tripod I thought my arms were going to fall off and I had to constantly switch arms and rest against the tripod, The next day, Monday I ordered the 509HLV Pan Bar that extends to 24" because I was going to be shoot the same set up on...

Manfrotto Qualität halt

B. K., Amazon
4 August 2013
  • Summary: Super verarbeitet, sitzt fest, lässt sich einfach ein - und ausfahren, beständig. Mehr ist nicht zu sagen. Hab ihn am "Manfrotto MVH 502A" verbaut, Gewinde passt. Ich glaube aber, die Gewinde für Stativarme sind bei Manfrotto eh alle gleich (alles andere wäre auch dumm für die Kunden). Wer bezahlbare Qualität sucht, muss zu Manfrotto greifen!
