Manfrotto 504X Fluid Video Head with Flat Base
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.

Manfrotto 645 FAST Twin Leg Video Tripod with Ultra L-Lock Mechanism (Aluminum)
The Manfrotto 645 FAST Twin Leg Video Tripod with Ultra L-Lock Mechanism is a two-stage aluminum tripod with a 100mm bowl and a single leg lock mechanism for each leg. A 100 to 75mm bowl adapter is included, so you get the flexibility to use 100 or 75mm video heads. The tripod features twin spiked feet with removable rubber overshoes, allowing for use on various terrain as well as on flat, smooth surfaces. It supports up to 55 pounds and has a maximum working height of 61.8″, a minimum height of 10.6″, and a folded length of 28.7″.
The tripod legs are selectable between free movement or having three locking leg positions so you can use the legs without a spreader. The optional Manfrotto MVASPR2N1 2-in-1 spreader can be attached if desired.
The legs feature Manfrotto’s Ultra-L Lock for the Twin FAST tripod legs. This allows you to lock and unlock both leg stages using only one locking lever located at the top of each leg, so you don’t have to bend down to unlock the legs.
Spreader or Spreaderless
The legs incorporate a locking mechanism that enables the legs to move completely freely, suitable when working with a spreader, or to lock at one of three angles, 70, 50, and 20°, which is suitable for use when working without a spreader.
You can use the included rubber feet to protect delicate surfaces from the tripod’s foot spikes.
100 to 75mm Bowl Adapter
The legs feature a 100mm bowl and include a 100 to 75mm bowl adapter. This provides the flexibility to use a video head with either a 100 or 75mm leveling ball.
