This B&H kit pairs the Manfrotto 504HD Video Fluid Head
with the 536 4-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod
to form a solid yet lightweight support system that's ready for action. The head supports up to 16.5 lbs (7.5 kg) 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. The head's redesigned variable friction components are marked clearly with degree scales, and pan/tilt movement is vibration-free.
The 536 tripod's four sections extend to a towering maximum height of 79.2" (203 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. A screw-in half bowl adapter offers the user the ability to work with 75 or 100mm bowl heads.
