Able to support a maximum payload of up to 5 kg, it features fine control to help stabilise your movements. The fluid cartridges on both the pan and tilt axes ensure that every motion is smooth and precise for high quality results. This video head is the most compact head in Manfrotto’s successful Bridging Technology™ range, and comes equipped with a 60mm half ball video tripod mount.
