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.
