The video system includes the Manfrotto 509 Professional Fluid Video Head and the 645 Fast Twin Tripod in aluminium. The 509HD fluid head combines ergonomic design features with professional performance. To help you obtain incredibly smooth camera movements and great footage, the 509HD has variable fluid drag and a fast, precise, 4-step counterbalance system that makes it suitable for a wide range of semi-professional and professional camera setups. The 509HD’s patented Advanced Balancing Recorder (ABR) allows you to quickly find, memorise and regain the correctly balanced plate position when using a particular combination of equipment. The 509HD also features Easy Link connectors for easy accessory attachment, an illuminated levelling bubble and replaceable rosettes for pan bar attachment on both sides of the head. The 509HD has a 100mm half ball video tripod mount.
The 645 FTT Fast Twin Alu 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 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.
