The video system includes the Manfrotto 526 Professional Fluid Video Head and the 645 Fast Twin Tripod in aluminium. The 526 Professional Fluid Video Head directly addresses the high-end, heavy-duty video market by offering a feature-packed fluid video head with the ability to support up to 16 kg and counterbalance weight from 8 to 15 kg. It provides a fluid drag system comprised of three step settings for low, medium and high drag levels (numbered 1, 2 and 3), plus an additional no-drag setting (number 0) for occasions such as snap-pans/tilts. It features a continuous counterbalance system for weights between 8 to 15 kg @ 125 mm C.O.G. The built-in 100mm half-ball adapts to a number of our tripods, allowing quick camera levelling with the aid of the levelling bubble.
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.
