Kit composed of the 504X video fluid ball joint and the MVTTWINGA aluminum tripod with ground level stabilizer.
The Manfrotto 504X fluid mount represents an innovation in video recording technology for professionals and independent content creators. It is a major step forward in the evolution of bridging technology kneecaps beyond the successful 504HD it replaces.
Professional image capture with smooth motion is essential for any independent filmmaker or content creator, and the 504X fluid ball joint is the perfect companion for such creatives at all times. Manfrotto has combined features of the successful and proven 504HD fluid video ball joint and entirely new features such as reduced weight and a flat base to meet the needs of the market. The result is an extremely versatile video ball joint in terms of supports (tripods, sliders, arms, etc), environmental conditions and working cameras.
The 504X integrates a continuous variable fluid system (Fluid Drag System - FDS) in both pan and tilt movements, setting a new performance level in the Manfrotto range, for the smoothest and most vibration-free movements to date. It is capable of operating in extreme conditions, between temperatures of -30 to +60°.
Thanks to its 4-step counterbalancing system (from 0 to 6.5 kg at 55 mm center of gravity), the camera will always be balanced in a quick and simple way. This allows the ball joint to be used in combination with a wide range of camcorders and digital cameras, along with different accessories. Independent brakes on the TILT and PAN axes of motion increase the ability to keep the equipment stable and safely in the required position.
The 504X can support a maximum load of 12 kg, and its design incorporates a flat 75 mm base that ensures maximum versatility, being able to use with sliders, arms or other accessories. Weighing only 1.93 kg, the 504X is also 700 g lighter than the previous version, allowing for easier handling. In addition, it is made of aluminum for maximum strength and rigidity with minimum weight.
Another feature that improves ease of use is the new ''Side Lock'' sliding shoe for faster setup. The easy link connectors feature Manfrotto's renowned anti-rotation technology and the Arri pin system. On the left side, there is a cover that covers the easy link connector 3/8" or the bread bar attachment, to avoid cuts during use.
The MVTTWINGA is a professional quality double leg tripod with two sections, rigid and stable which makes it ideal for all kinds of tasks. If you want to create professional level videos or movies, then this is the tripod you need. With adjustable stabilizer at ground level for more stability. For 100 mm hemisphere (includes adapter for 100 mm to 75 mm hemisphere). The leg locks are safe and reliable and spiked feet are provided for external use, e.g. on the grass. For maximum versatility, the tripod can be used with several dollies (114MV and 181B).
