Product Description

The 504HD offers a perfect balance between 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. The 504HD has been designed to offer a load capacity of up to 16.3 lb, making it suitable for a huge range of equipment. The CBS counterbalance system has four presets for camera weights 5.5 lb, 11 lb and 16.3 lb. Leveling the head is easy thanks to the 75 mm diameter half ball and the back-lit bubble level. Two 3/8” threads on the top plate allow accessories to be directly and securely attached to the head, cutting down on set-up time and keeps your camera hot shoe free. This Tripod is the perfect choice for all of your video needs. Featuring a classic twin leg design, this will support up to 44lbs. A built in 75mm bowl allows easy connection of the 504HDV. A ground level spreader offers great stability and improved torsion, a ground level spreader is also included. TECHNICAL SPECIFICATONS: Maximum height 59"; Maximum Load 44lbs; 75mm bowl attachment; ground level spreader.

Received the tripod yesterday, after mounting my JVC Gy-HD100 I noticed I could feel a vibration with my left hand on the legs when I paned the head left and right. It is like I can feel a bad ball bearing grinding or something. Being new to the under $1k tripod market I was not sure if this was a defect or simply what I get in an inexpensive tripod. After searching the net I found nothing stating that anyone is having this problem so I called the manufacture and was told that some defective 504HD heads had hit the market. Unclear if this means just a few or all or what? Mafrotto was very helpful and offered to exchange the head but informed me it would take a little time as the new 504 shipment was being tested for this same issue stated above and would not have a head to replace mine with immediately. I may just be forced to return it and go with another brand. I thought I would like to give it a 2nd try as I still think it may be the best choice in this price range? I like the look of the 504HD and the feel is OK except for the grinding noted above. I like the extra 3/8" taps on the side of the 504 so I can mount my firestore hard drive and such and get it off the top of my cam. I found it odd that I ordered this setup with the bottom spreader and it actually came with both the mid spreader installed on the tripod and a bottom spreader in the box. This was a nice surprise as I had a hard time making up my mind what spreader to go with and none of the pictures on the net show that you get both. Was this a fluke? I see nothing indicating you get both. One negative is that I do not like the leg releases, I assume it is plastic, it feels cheep to me but I am comparing it to the tripods at 3 times the price so this may be the norm at this price point?Read more ›
