Manfrotto 504HD Head w/535 2-Stage Carbon Fiber Tripod System
  • 504HD Fluid Video Head
  • 535 3-Stage Carbon Fiber Tripod
  • 1 x TRIPOD BAG

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!

Key Features

• PAN fluid drag system for a more ergonomic operation
• Easy Link Connectors for a more flexible accessory attachment
• Wider top plate and longer sliding plate for extra stability and balance while using video or photo equipment
• More rigid structure for maximum precision and improved responsiveness
• 4-step counterbalance system ensures quick set-up and optimal performance
• Ball-bearing drag system for precise, smooth movements
• Lightweight modern materials for optimum balance of strength and size

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid, easy and portable tripod. 5/5 This is the second Manfrotto tripod I have owned (previously $130 ball photography ball head). Manfrotto are a trusted brand for the reason that their gear works great and lasts. I have only had the tripod for a month now and I love everything about it. I am using the Canon C100 cinema camera on this tripod and would not reccommend anything lighter - as it may be overkill for the weight.

This is a great buy for any amateur-mid range-professional film and video enthusiast. The price tag may seem a little high at first although it's a real investment in the long run. Can't wait to continue using this tripod and feels like it will last a life time.

This tripod extends to a ridiculously high point and has the potential to be used in other circumstances and allows other products to be attached.

Highly reccommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Manfrotto experience This is a product for semi pro, who can carry a lot of relatively heavy stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rock sold and professional combination The carbon fiber tripod makes up for the fact that this is a heavy head. The combination is excellent for video. The tripod has amazing torsional stability (no backlash on rapid pans) Quick to set up and collapse. This model of the manfrotto video head is still built in Italy and it shows in the build quality. Very well constructed. Note that those who use the 501PL plate on their camera. This plate fits perfectly on this head.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Function and Performance Definitely a rig for planned production - not the sort of thing you just flip up and over the shoulder.
Well designed and functional - long lens balance ability a great feature. Built to last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tripod Great tripod. Looks great, smooth and easy to use. Better suited to heavier cameras, as a little bit too counterweighted for smaller camcorders. Overall very happy with the tripod. Get the kit with the bag too, its a great carrybag and protection for the carbon fibre lets.
