Manfrotto 504HD,546BK Pro Video Tripod/Pro Video Head Kit

Features in Detail | Enlarged Image

The 504HD,546BK is a complete kit for heavy duty cameras. The kit consists of the Manfrotto 546B Aluminum Pro Video Tripod, the 504HD Pro Video Head and the MBAG100PN Padded Tripod Bag.

The 546B is a two-stage, extremely rigid, stable tripod. Able to carry loads up to 44 pounds (20 kg), it has an aluminum top casting with a built-in 75mm half ball, allowing it to be used with Manfrotto's professional half-ball video heads with 75mm fittings. Its aluminum twin-strut legs feature adjustable locking levers that can be tension-set to guarantee complete locking power even after years of use and wear; the spiked feet with removable rubber shoes are suitable for any surface from smooth, delicate floors to uneven ground.

The Manfrotto 504HD Video Fluid Head is a perfect balance of design and performance. The bridge design improves the head's rigidity and its Pan friction control is fast, simple to fine-tune and protected from knocks. All structural components are made from aluminum, with the Pan axis rotation unit using ball bearings to obtain smooth, totally vibration-free controlled movements that can be directly adjusted using the head's FDS variable friction system. FDS on both the Pan and Tilt axes also ensures that the head works perfectly at all temperatures, with all types of equipment and under all loads. Ergonomically improved lever and dial designs combine with the new friction index to give you complete control.

Replacing the MBAG100P Tripod Bag, the Manfrotto MBAG100PN Padded Tripod Bag is identical in features and design to the top-of-the-line MBAG120PN, but in a slightly smaller size. The MBAG100PN is padded to protect your equipment. Innovative design and style: ballistic nylon, zips and other materials used are of top quality and designed in collaboration with Kata Carrying Systems.

The tripod's telescopic mid-level spreader helps set leg angles accurately and improves rigidity.

Manfrotto 504HD Pro Video Head

Manfrotto 504HD Pro Video Head

The Manfrotto 504HD Video Fluid Head is a perfect balance of design and performance. The bridge design improves the head's rigidity and its Pan friction control is fast, simple to fine-tune and protected from knocks. All structural components are made from aluminum, with the Pan axis rotation unit using ball bearings to obtain smooth, totally vibration-free controlled movements that can be directly adjusted using the head's FDS variable friction system. FDS on both the Pan and Tilt axes also ensures that the head works perfectly at all temperatures, with all types of equipment and under all loads. Ergonomically improved lever and dial designs combine with the new friction index to give you complete control over the 504HD.
Manfrotto 504HD

The 504HD has been designed to offer a load capacity of up to 16.5 pounds (7.5kg), making it suitable for a huge range of camera equipment. The CBS counterbalance system has four presets for a full range of camera weights. Leveling the head is easy thanks to the 75mm diameter hemisphere and the back-lit bubble level. Two 3/8-inch threads on the top plate allow accessories (such as monitors and arms) to be directly and securely attached to the head, which helps cut down set-up time, keeps your camera hot shoe free and, saves you from using another clamp. The 504HD is suitable for Manfrotto PRO series video tripods with mid-level or ground spreaders and for carbon fiber single-leg MPRO tripods.

Bridging Technology
The 504HD is the result of an important technical evolution -- the perfect synthesis between an innovative Bridge Architecture and Manfrotto's cutting edge engineering. Bridging Technology is an exclusive Manfrotto patent. Provides a wider, longer platform for your camera and accessories. The bridge design improves the head's rigidity. The high rigidity structure delivers maximum response and strength.

3 - Illuminated leveling bubble
Fluid Movement, Fine-Control Drag System (FDS)
The 504HD fluid head combines a high-performing fluidity with a wide variety of professional features. Pan friction control is fast, simple to fine-tune and protected from knocks. The Pan axis rotation unit uses ball bearings to obtain smooth, totally vibration-free controlled movements. Movement can be directly adjusted using the 504HD's variable friction Fluid Drag System (FDS). FDS on both the Pan and Tilt axes also ensures that the head works perfectly at all temperatures. Each control has a degree scale to allow precise adjustment of the fluidity of every movement of the 504HD, so it can be fine-tuned to your camera equipment, the type of shot required and the operating temperature (from -20°C to +60°C).
Four-Step Adjustable Counterbalance System
The 504HD has been designed to offer a load capacity of up to 16.5 pounds (7.5kg), making it suitable for a huge range of camera equipment. The CBS counterbalance system has four presets for a full range of camera weights: 0, 5.5 pounds (2.5kg), 5kg-11lb and 7.5kg-16.5lb).
Independent Brakes On Tilt And Pan Axes
The 504HD's new disc brakes are inspired by automotive design, and are more than capable of keeping the heavy equipment safe, stable and in position.
Ergonomic Controls For Easy Use In All Conditions
Large ergonomic locks and knobs on the 504HD allow for a more solid grip and better control. Easy Link Connectors for a more flexible accessory attachment.

Wider Top Plate And Longer Quick-Release Sliding Plate With Secondary Safety Pin
The 504HD's wider top plate and longer sliding plate offer extra stability and balance while using video or photo equipment. It is assembled using stainless steel screws for protection against corrosion and rust. Your equipment is always secure: even if you forget to block the sliding plate, the secondary safety pin prevents the plate (and your camera) from falling.
Built-in Illuminated LED Bubble Level
The illuminated LED bubble level makes it easy for shooters to level the camera in low-light conditions.
Easy-Link Connectors
Two 3/8-inch Easy-Link Connectors are located on the top plate to allow accessories, such as monitors or lights, to be easily and securely attached. This allows the camera hot shoe to be used for other accessories, or kept free to reduce weight and lower the center of gravity for improved stability.
Lightweight Modern Materials For Optimum Balance Of Strength And Weight
Pan Handle With Left And Right Side Pan Bar Attachment
The pan bar attachments on both left and right sides of the head give maximum flexibility. Both attachments have a substitutable rosette wheel, which can be replaced easily and cheaply if it suffers wear or damage... preferable by far to having to substitute the whole side wall of the head.

Manfrotto MBAG100PN Padded Tripod Bag

Manfrotto MBAG100PN 39.4-inch Padded Tripod Bag

Replacing the MBAG100P Tripod Bag, the Manfrotto MBAG100PN Padded Tripod Bag is identical in features and design to the MBAG120PN, but in a slightly smaller size. The MBAG100PN is padded to protect your equipment. Innovative design and style: ballistic nylon, zips and other materials used are of top quality and designed in collaboration with Kata Carrying Systems.

The redesigned MBags, available in six models of varying lengths, feature new padding with a thermoformed Manfrotto logo, a rubberized loop which makes it easier to open and close, and new attention to the details, making this range of bags iconic and user friendly. The innovation of these Manfrotto carrying solutions is all in the details, in the tech materials and in the improved ergonomics that make these products worthy partners of Manfrotto's proven professional tripods and heads.

MBAG100PN Padded Tripod Bag Key Features

Easy access even with the bigger video tripods
Easy access even with the bigger video tripods
End Opening Allows for Faster "Quiver" Style Extraction and Insertion of Tripod
Zip extends down the length of the bag, but also fully opens the top end of the bag, making it easier to get your tripod in and out, as well as being able to extract the tripod quickly. You can extract the tripod quickly from the end of the bag like an arrow from a quiver.
Comfortable Carrying Handle
Ergonomic Design
Asymmetric tapered shape allows you to store the tripod with the head attached. Tripod legs fit comfortably in the narrower end (7.87" diameter) and extra space is allowed for the larger volume of the head at the wider end (9" diameter). This also means it's easier to put the tripod and head in the bag, even if the head levers and knobs are fitted and jut out slightly.
Durable Materials, Padded End Cap
Thermoform padding holds the tripod in place and protects it, especially the head, during transport. Serves a double purpose by protecting you from the tripod's hard edges when carrying it by your side. Logo end cap is padded to offer protection to the tripod head. High quality durable materials, and padded ends protects your tripod throughout.
Inner Pocket
Inner pocket holds accessories (such as video head pan bars) where they won't rattle around or get damaged.
Easy-Grip Zip Opening
New rubberized Manfrotto loop helps when using the zips.
Versatile Carrying Options
Can be hand-carried horizontally by the side handle, vertically by the end handle, or shoulder-carried using the included strap. Side carrying handle is adjustable to better balance transportation of heavy heads mounted on the tripod. The end handle is also useful for storage, allowing you an easy way to remove the bag from a high shelf, for example.
