New from Manfrotto: 504x Fluid Head and Kits Replace the Venerable 504HD

Here at B&H Photo, we are happy to share with you the announcement of the 504x fluid head and tripod kits, from Manfrotto. The 504x, which is a replacement for the venerable 504HD, makes its debut, bringing with it a host of improvements while keeping the bridging design that has proven itself in the field. One immediately noticeable update is that the 504x comes with a flat base, allowing for lower shots when working on sliders and jobs, as well as for mounting directly on flat surfaces.

As with other flat base heads, a simple leveling half-ball adapter makes the 504x compatible with a range of ball base legs, both aluminum and carbon fiber. Though lighter than the 504HD, the 504x features an increased load capacity of 26.5 pounds (that is 12 kg for our readers in Europe and the UK) with a four-step counterbalance to help offset the weight of the camera while operating.
