The Manfrotto Nitrotech N8 Video Head & 546B Pro Tripod kit features an innovative counterbalance system based on a nitrogen piston mechanism. Unlike heads where the counterbalance clicks into place at set levels, the Nitrotech N8 can be precisely adjusted to the weight of your camera rig. With a maximum payload capacity of 17.6 pounds, the N8 is suitable for use with a variety of video cameras. Head features include a sliding camera plate with safety lock, fluid-drag pan and tilt functions, and an illuminated bubble level. This 75mm flat-base head can be used with the included half-ball adapter for maximum flexibility in mounting to the tripod, or to a slider, hi-hat, or other support.

The 546B Pro Video Tripod with Mid-Level Spreader is a two-stage, 75mm-bowl aluminum tripod. This tripod can support up to 44 pounds and it has a height range of 12-61". Its mid-level spreader stabilizes the legs while allowing for some clearance above the ground. The 546B's spiked feet come with rubber overshoes, enabling setups on both smooth floors and uneven surfaces. The spreader can be detached, and each leg can be adjusted independently for use on a staircase or other location with varying-height surfaces.

  • Nitrotech N8 Video Head

    The Manfrotto Nitrotech N8 Video Head features an innovative, continuous counterbalance system based on a nitrogen-piston mechanism. Unlike heads with stepped levels of counterbalance, the Nitrotech N8 can be precisely adjusted to the weight of your camera rig. Adjust the counterbalance by twisting the knob on the left side towards the front of the head. The knob itself can be extended with a pull, adding room useful with a wider camera. With a maximum payload capacity of 17.6 pounds, the Nitrotech N8 is designed to be used with a variety of video or DSLR/MFT camera rigs. This 75mm flat-base head can be used with a half-ball adapter (available separately) for maximum flexibility in mounting to tripods, sliders, hi-hats, or other supports.

    The Nitrotech N8 includes several pro-style features for reliable, efficient use of the head. The included camera mounting plate locks in from the side, and it has a sliding design to help balance the rig on the head. Smooth panning and tilting moves are enabled by the Nitrotech N8's variable fluid drag systems. A push-button illuminated bubble at the rear of the head lets you see at a glance if the head is leveled. Unlike some other Manfrotto heads, the N8's controls are on the left side of the head, freeing your right hand to operate the panhandle.

    Looking to lessen the weight of accessories on your camera rig? Attach your monitor, rangefinder, light, flag, etc. to the 3/8"-threaded Easy Link Connector built into the side of the Nitrotech N8. This transfers the weight of the accessory away from the camera and to the head, making the camera less top-heavy.
