Manfrotto MVH504XAH Overview

The 504X Fluid Video Head with Flat Base from Manfrotto features an open bridge design that provides a stable, smooth performance while reducing weight. The head's patented bridge technology allows for a wider top surface and longer sliding plate that add stability and balance. The head features a flat base with a 3/8"-16 female mounting thread that allows compatibility with a wide range of tripods, monopods, sliders, jibs, and dollies, and a variety of rigs.

With its ability to support up to 26.5 lb, the 504X can be used with a variety of video and photo cameras and rigs. The pan and tilt counterbalance system includes four presets from 0 to 4.8 to 9.7 to 14.3 lb, enabling proper balance no matter what the camera's size or weight.

At the same time, variable friction components with clearly marked degree scales and vibration-free movement bring new levels of fine-tuning to your tilts and pans. A leveling bubble keeps horizons from tilting, even in the dark, while independent disc-brake locks make sure the head stays secure when at rest.

Whether you're using a pro camcorder or an accessorized DSLR, the 504X provides a 504PLONGR-1 sliding quick release plate with 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threads to balance the camera properly on your rig. The head is made from durable aluminum and includes a pan bar that can be attached via rosettes on either the right or left side to help create smooth pan-and-tilt movements.

Quick Features

Fluid drag system for precise, smooth movements
Wide top surface and long sliding plate for extra stability and balance while using video or photo equipment
Four-step counterbalance system ensures quick setup and optimal performance
Rigid structure for maximum precision and improved responsiveness
Lightweight aluminum for optimum balance of strength and size

How much weight in Kgs could the 504X can carry?
Asked by: Poonpat
I just watched the video which states the counter balance only works up to 14.33 lb. So, don't conclude that the 26.5 lb. payload will work with the counter balance.

hi, can i use the plates from Sachtler?
Asked by: John
FWIW, the Sachtler FSB-6 tilt-in model will accommodate Manfrotto 501 plates. So if the Manfrotto 504X can accomodate the 501 plates, I would expect it could accommodate the plate that comes with the Sachtler FSB-6 tilt-in model.
