This B&H kit pairs the Manfrotto 504HD Video Fluid Head with the 535 3-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod to form a solid yet lightweight system that's ready for action. The head supports up to 16.5 lbs 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 (7.5 kg). The head's redesigned variable friction components are marked clearly with degree scales, and pan/tilt movement is vibration-free.
The 535 tripod's three sections extend to a maximum height of 67" (171 cm). An angle selector helps set the legs in the proper position, and rubber feet (with retractable spikes) help keep the system firmly in place.
Manfrotto 504HD Fluid Video Head
The Manfrotto 504HD Fluid Video Head features an innovative 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 lb, 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 lb, 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 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.
