Manfrotto 509HD Tripod System Overview

The 536 Carbon Fiber Tripod with 509HD Video Head and Padded Carry Bag offers a complete tripod solution for professional video camera systems weighing up to 29 lb (13.1 kg). A 4-step counterbalance mechanism of the 509HD head ensures optimum balance and allows the videographer to get the camera in position quickly.

Featuring the Bridging Technology with a ball bearing drag system, the tripod head offers professional quality stability as well as precise, smooth movements.

A unique Advance Balancing Recorder feature can record the perfect balanced position for your camera equipment so that the position can be recalled later on. This electronic ABR feature reduces the time needed for setting up and balancing your camera system on the tripod head.

The 536 video tripod legs feature a 3-stage design which comfortably support the 509HD head and professional camera equipment. Carbon fiber ensures sturdy construction and extremely light weight (7.1 lb / 3.25 kg) for a professional video camera tripod. The leg angle selector allows you to quickly adjust the leg angles in a precise way.

A padded bag included in the kit is useful to store as well as carry the 536 tripod legs with the 509HD head.
