Manfrotto Nitrotech 608 Tripod System Overview

The 608 Nitrotech Fluid Video Head and 536 Carbon Fiber Single Legs Tripod from Manfrotto provide content creators with a versatile solution for various applications. A lightweight head is paired with a sturdy four-section tripod for a maximum height of 86" and a minimum height of only 16". The head supports up to 17.6 lb and features a Nitrogen gas piston mechanism that allows for continuous counterbalance across the full payload range. It's also designed with improved fluid technology that allows smooth and judder-free pan and tilt movements.

Other key features of the head include a side lock camera plate system and two rosette adapters each with a 3/8"-16 accessory port and Manfrotto and ARRI anti-rotation slots. A half ball is included to convert the flat base head to fit the tripod, which has a 100mm bowl and 75mm bowl adapter.

With a native flat base, the 608 Nitrotech can also be easily mounted on sliders, jibs, and other gear. The tripod's single legs can independently be set at 23, 50, and 70° angles. A padded carrying bag is included for the tripod.

Manfrotto 608 Nitrotech Fluid Video Head

The Manfrotto 608 Nitrotech is a flat base fluid video head designed for the versatility needs of the independent content creator who's engaged in different types of projects. Thanks to its flat base with a 3/8"-16 mounting thread, as well as its relatively compact and lightweight design, the head can easily be moved between a compatible tripod and a slider, jib, monopod, and various other gear. One of the key features of the 608 Nitrotech is its Nitrogen gas piston counterbalance mechanism (hence, Nitrotech), which allows continuous counterbalance adjustment—as opposed to stepped or fixed—for the head's full payload range of 0 to 17.6 lb. Additionally, an upgraded fluid technology significantly improves continuously variable drag performance and enables smooth and judder-free pan and tilt movements.

Providing further flexibility, the head's camera plate system features a side-lock mechanism that allows for quicker and safer mounting of your camera plate and camera load. Instead of having to align and slide in your camera plate from the rear, you're able to conveniently tuck in one side of the plate from the top and then push and click on the other side.

The 608 Nitrotech offers two rosette mounts for attaching the included pan bar on either the left or right side. These rosettes also feature Manfrotto's Easy Link system for mounting accessories via an articulating arm. Each rosette has a 3/8"-16 port in the center and both Manfrotto and ARRI anti-rotation slots surrounding the mounting port. The Easy Link system is designed to support Manfrotto articulating arms equipped with anti-rotation pins or those with ARRI locating pins to prevent twisting. At the same time, standard articulating arms can also be attached.

Other features of the 608 Nitrotech include improved resistance to lower operating temperatures in comparison to previous Nitrotech models and improved ergonomics and materials used for the different knobs.

No one seems to be answering this confidently. Is the half ball a 75mm or a 100mm? It comes mounted to the 75mm adapter. Taking it off the ball seems to swim in the open space. On the 75mm adapter it seems to not fit well. Which is it?

Is the 75 mm ball adapter mounted within the 100 mm ball assembly? Great Tripod.
Asked by: Jeff
I took it apart and found the 75 mm adapter was installed with 3 Allen head screws. I removed it because the 608 head is intended for the 100 mm ball, which is what is supposed to be the one included. It is difficult to determine, but it seems like a better fit. I didn't look for a part number on the ball, an after thought, it's probably marked. Jeff. Thanks.
