Manfrotto, will be featuring its 501HDV Video Head at this year’s PMA. Designed to meet the needs of HDV shooters, the 501HDV features a powerful new feature that takes its inspiration from Manfrotto’s top professional head models - a fixed counterbalance spring - which helps ensure both smoother tilt movements and greater equipment safety, even when the tilt locks are inadvertently left off. An easy-access on/off switch allows the counterbalance system to be engaged or disengaged for different filming needs and for quick panning and tilting. The 501HDV offers an updated design, which has been created for improved ergonomics with locks and knobs that allow for a more solid grip.

The large knobs - with all controls on the left side of the head - allow for enhanced ease of use. In addition, the quick release plate (with standard 3/8” thread) has been redesigned to be flush with the casting so that the camera sits flat on top of the video head. The 501HDV inherits its separate pan and tilt locks, gradual tilt friction adjustment system and repositionable pan bar from its successful predecessor, the 501.

The PMA show, or Photo Marketing Association, continues its yearly tradition of maintaining a network of photo imaging as well as the experience and know-how of the industry. The PMA represents 20,000 members from over 100 countries, who are all active within the imaging industry. As a reflection of the changes in the market, the PMA organization has also changed and has become more diverse. Nowadays, the member group consists of representatives coming from photo retail, manufacturers, commercial photo labs, professional sports and news photography, in addition to small album print suppliers and photo processing centers. The PMA 2012 Trade show focuses on an industry which is heavily affected by the unstable situation of the global financial economy. However, whether the latter will also stand in the way of the innovation and product introductions, remains to be revealed by the PMA International Convention & Trade Show in Anaheim Convention Center (California, US).
