Asked by: Asok
The 509HD has a load capacity up to 29 pounds or 13.1kg. A total of 15kg is above the load capacity. You would need to look at the Manfrotto 526 instead, which has a load capacity of 35 lbs or 16kg.https://bhpho.to/2NbClNJ

Which quick release adapter works with this plate?

The plate that comes with this head is model 509PLONG. So the adapter you need would be the 577.

question

I am hoping to combo this head with a pair of Gitzo sticks. If I get the 100mm half ball adapter and combine it with the Gitzo Series 3 legs, will the 509 mount correctly?(Below are the exact products that Im looking at combining it with) Gitzo Series 3 6X Systematic Carbon Fiber Tripod (X-Long) Gitzo Systematic 100mm Half-Bowl Video Head Adapter Series 5
Asked by: Sean C.
I think the 100mm half ball is an universal system. I use my 509 head with a Benro tripod.Regards,Leif Rune Sundli

question

How does the half ball come off?
Asked by: Anonymous
To remove the half ball you must unscrew the center column/shaft at the base of the head, then underneath the half ball you'll see a silver nut that can be unscrewed.

Hi, all. I need to find a replacement screw for locking down the tripod plate. Mine broke and the tripod is pretty much useless without being able to keep my camera from sliding back and forth. Any help?

Hi, just double check if this head compatible with the 501PL quick release plate? Thanks
Asked by: Lenny P.
The short answer to your question is no; the509HD head is not compatible with the 501PL quick release. You may want to consider getting a 504PLONG quick release plate instead. -- B. L. S.
