Manfrotto MVH504XAH Tripod System Overview

Support your camera rig with the 504X Flat-Base Fluid Video Head and Aluminum Tripod with Ground Spreader from Manfrotto. The system features the 504X fluid tripod head, the MVTTWINGA aluminum tripod, a leveling ball to adapt the head to the tripod, and a carry bag.

The head features a 26.5 lb maximum load, a pan bar, a quick release plate, a counterbalance system with four presets, and its open bridge design that provides a stable, smooth performance and reduces weight. Its flat base with a 3/8"-16 female mounting thread allows compatibility with a wide range of tripods, monopods, sliders, jibs, and dollies, and a variety of rigs.

The twin-leg aluminum tripod provides a 55 lb maximum load and a 75/100mm ball head mount, and it features a ground spreader for additional stability. The 504X head mounts onto the MVTTWINGA tripod using the included leveling ball. A carry bag is included to store and transport the entire system.

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 12.02 kg, 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 2.17 to 4.39 to 6.48 kg, 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.

  • 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
