Manfrotto introduces the new 504HD system

September 22, 2010

Manfrotto Bridging Technology

The 504HD is the first in a series of video fluid tripod heads that will feature Manfrotto’s revolutionary Bridging Technology™. A unique feature adding style and enhancing performance, the bridge design improves rigidity as well as reduces the overall weight of the head. Additionally, the bridge design protects the pan friction control dial from knocks.

All structural components are made from aluminum, with the pan axis rotation unit using ball bearings to obtain smooth, vibration-free movements, adjustable using the head’s Fluid Drag System (FDS) variable friction system. The FDS, available on both the PAN and TILT axes, ensures consistency and precision at all temperatures.

The Counter-Balance System (CBS) offers four presets to accommodate a number of camera weights from 3.3lbs to 16.3lbs. Leveling the head is also easy thanks to the 75mm diameter half ball and the back-lit bubble level.

Further adding to the versatility of the Manfrotto 504HD are two 3/8 inch threads which have been integrated into the top plate to allow accessories, such as monitors and arms, to be directly and securely attached to the head.
