The video system includes the Manfrotto NITROTECH 608 Fluid Video Head and the 645 Fast Twin Tripod in carbon fibre.
The NITROTECH 608 fluid video head features state-of-the-art technology consisting in a Nitrogen piston mechanism that allows a continuous counterbalance system enabling the precise control of a camera and accessories up to 8kg (17.6lb). The variable fluidity function on both pan and tilt allows smooth, judder-free movement. It also features a 3/8” Easy Link equipped with an anti-rotation function that enables an external monitor or other accessories to be fitted. The sliding plate attachment side-lock mechanism allows safe, quick and easy camera attachment. The NITROTECH 608 head has a flat base mount with a standard 3/8” thread that is highly versatile for different support combinations (tripod, slider, rig or crane).
The 645 FTT Fast Twin Carbon Tripod features a double tubing and Ultra L-Lock lever technology for the most robust support ever. The tripod is provided with a 2 in 1 half ball: a standard 100mm bowl along with a 75mm adapter to enable the use of a wider range of video heads. It also features a middle spreader lock. However, the 3-angle selectors make the use of a spreader a matter of optional preference.
This range was developed with the primary objective of making video shooting easier by reducing set up times and maintenance. The synchronized closure mechanisms between the upper and lower locks, enable videographers to control the entire leg with a single lock and get to work in record time. The new tripod provides maximum versatility, supporting the use of a broad choice of heads, and ensuring the utmost rigidity while also being extremely lightweight.
Moreover, it is compatible with the 2 in 1 ground and middle telescopic spreader (sold as an optional accessory) and it features a 3-angle selection mechanism for easy set up. It is equipped with spiked feet with rubber overshoes for a firm grip and adaptability to the most diverse shooting locations.
