509 FLUID VIDEO HEAD WITH 100MM HALF BALL
Manfrotto's 509HD is a professional fluid video head with 509PLONG quick shoe and 100mm half sphere. It has a variable, fluid dragging system in Pan & Tilt movements, a variable counterbalance system in lateral movements, quick-release slip shoe for easy setup and a light bubble level for easy setup.
The 509HD is the result of a major technical evolution - the perfect synthesis between innovative bridge architecture and Manfrotto's state-of-the-art engineering: Bridging Technology - an exclusive Manfrotto patent. A new bridge that allows the videographer and photographer to achieve even better results with today's high-definition cameras.
The 509HD incorporates the Fluid Drag System (FDS) system based on fluid cartridges on both the TILT axis (tilt) and the PAN (horizontal); the ergonomics of the controls have been significantly improved to make the FDS even easier to use. Movement on the shafts is smoothed by using ball bearings that eliminate any unwanted vibration. All this guarantees an extraordinary level of control and excellent video camera support, regardless of the situation, recording style or equipment used.
The 509HD is capable of carrying a maximum load of 13.5kg at 55mm C. O. G or 9Kg at 125mm C. O. G. and to perform counterbalance from 12,8Kg to 55mm C. O. G or 8,5Kg to 125mm C. O. G. The two 3/8 "threads on the top of the platform allow direct mounting of accessories such as monitors and arms, eliminating the need for extra clamps, saving set-up time and freeing the camera shoe for other accessories. The 509HD incorporates the ABR (Advanced Balancing Recorder) system for maximum precision when mounting the equipment, ensuring a perfectly balanced position, saving time and making the operation much more efficient, precise and fast. The system can be balanced thanks to the Ø100mm semi-sphere and the illuminated level bubble.
