This kit pairs the Manfrotto 504HD Video Fluid Head with the 54G6B Pro Video Tripod to form a solid, stylish support system that's ready for action. The head supports up to 16.5 lbs (7.5 kg) of professional video gear, be it a mid-sized HD camcorder or a fully outfitted DSLR camera rig. The 504HD head introduces Manfrotto's redesigned counterbalance system with four presets from 0 to 16.5 lbs. The head's redesigned variable friction components are marked clearly with degree scales, and pan/tilt movement is vibration-free.
The 546GB aluminum two-stage tripod extends to a maximum height of 62.4 in (158.5 cm). It features a ground-level spreader for setting proper leg angles – and for keeping the feet (spiked, with included rubber overshoes) firmly in place.
The Manfrotto 504HD Fluid Video Head introduces a revolutionary new design that improves performance while reducing weight, as well as offering a soupçon of style. The head's patented Bridging Technology allows for a wider top plate and longer sliding plate that add stability and balance to a set of state-of-the-art professional features. With its ability to support up to 16.5 lbs, the 504HD can be used with a variety of video and photo cameras. The newly designed counterbalance system includes four presets--from 0 to 16.5 lbs--enabling proper balance no matter what the camera's size or weight.
At the same time, redesigned variable friction components--with clearly marked degree scales and vibration-free movement--bring new levels of fine tuning to your tilts and pans. An illuminated leveling bubble keeps horizons from tilting, even in the dark, while independent disc-brake locks make sure the head stays secure when at rest.
Whether you're using a pro camcorder or a highly accessorized video DSLR on a rod/rail system, the 504HD takes some of the strain off your support rig by providing two 3/8" threads integrated into the sides of the top plate. These Easy Link Connectors allow attachment of monitors, arms, and other accessories directly to the head, making the camera less top-heavy while reducing setup time. All while being oh-so-stylish!
