What's in the Box

Manfrotto 504HD Fluid Video Head
  • 504HLV Pan Handle
  • 2-Year Warranty

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 19.8 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great head For the money a great head, could do with a couple more steps of friction but for a lightweight camera, it's ideal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Manfrotto 504HD Head - Videoguys Super Fast Shipping As an A grade broadcast lighting cameraman with 30 years experience, i've used pretty much all of the top line tripods and heads. I've been using my own personal Vinten Pro 5 for more than a dozen years which has been great. Thought i would try out the Manfrotto 504HD as a spare head and for the money it's great. Only negatives are, the 504HD controls are plastic-y and a bit cheap in comparison to the Vinten Pro 5. But overall it's a great head at a great price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice head Plenty of good reviews out on the web. The only thing I found was I would have liked the counterbalance to have a continuous adjustment rather than only a fixed number but most of the other heads in this range don't have any counterbalance system at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of kit Great value for money. Works well with my Canon XHA1 with added mikes, transmitter and card recorder which adds some weight to the rig. Smooth tilt and pans which are fully adjutstable for every shooting requirement. Has a solid feel about it and quite heavy but gives the required stability. Overall very happy with purchase and suits all my requirements.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great piece of kit After doing a lot of research on which head to purchase it was a choice between the best pricing and a name brand. The 504HD came with excellent reviews so took the plunge and purchased it. I use a Canon XHA1 with shotgun mic, radio mic and other attachments making a fairly heavy rig. This head works very well having fully adjustable settings for each axis and has a feel of quality. This is a pleasure to use and I highly recommend it for anyone wanting smooth pan and tilt video. I have used more expensive heads that are less responsive so this represents great value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Terrific value for the price I mainly use this Video Head for wildlife filming. It is quick to use and stable enough for high magnification shooting.
