The 504HD is Manfrotto's latest video fluid head. It is a perfect balance of design and performance. The bridge design improves the head's rigidity and its PAN friction control is fast, simple to fine-tune and protected from knocks. All structural components are made from aluminium, with the PAN axis rotation unit using ball bearings to obtain smooth, totally vibration-free controlled movements that can be directly adjusted using the head's FDS variable friction system. FDS on both the PAN and TILT axes also ensures that the head works perfectly at all temperatures, with all types of equipment and under all loads. Ergonomically improved lever and dial designs combine with the new friction index to give you complete control over the 504HD. The 504HD has been designed to offer a load capacity of up to 7.5kg making it suitable for a huge range of camera equipment. The CBS counterbalance system has 4 presets for a full range of camera weights (2.5kg, 5kg and 7.5kg).
Levelling the head is easy thanks to the 75mm diameter hemisphere and the back-lit bubble level. Two 3/8” threads on the top plate allow accessories (such as monitors and arms) to be directly and securely attached to the head, which helps cut down set-up time, keeps your camera hot shoe free and, saves you from using another clamp.
The Manfrotto 546GB is a two-stage, extremely rigid, stable tripod. The 546GB has a die cast aluminium crown with a built in 75mm bowl. The tripod's telescopic ground-level spreader helps set leg angles accurately. Leg locks are secure and reliable, and spiked feet with rubber overshoes are provided for solid grounding on both uneven terrain and smooth floors.
