The Manfrotto 504HD Head w/536 3-Stage Carbon Fiber Tripod System combines the innovative and stylish 504HD Fluid Video Head with the 3-stage/4-section carbon fiber 536 Tripod--providing the perfect intersection of affordability, range, and weight with smooth, precise control. This compact and versatile system was designed with both video and DSLR rigs in mind, and provides the ergonomics and support called for by today's small crews and solo event shooters.
The 504HD'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. A newly designed counterbalance system includes four presets--from 0 to 16.5 lbs--enabling proper balance for camera loads up to 16.5 lbs, while 3/8" threads in the top plate allow attachment of monitors, arms, and other accessories directly to the head.
Thanks to carbon fiber single-tube and magnesium die castings, this tripod provides great stability and load capability in a lightweight, ergonomic, and easy-to-use design. Along with its low minimum height of 16" (with head) and high maximum of 85", the 536 offers an angle selector for adjusting leg angles with precision and ease.
