If Ferrari made tripods...

  • Excerpt: The 504HD Head, and 546B Tripod look fierce, and perform even better than their looks. All the little built in extras make this system a true gem. The extended quick release comes in handy when mounting large rigs. The light up level feature seemed a little silly at first but now I cannot imagine going anywhere without it. The extending arm handle is fantastic when using a seated dolly. Any solutions to even the most minimal shooting fatigue is highly welcomed.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, The Bag, Unfolds Quickly

  • Excerpt: Manfrotto makes a great product and this is no exception. Solid build and the smoothest movement in the market.

I LOVE this Manfrotto Fluid Head, a lot!

  • Excerpt: This head is worth every bit of the investment, and has given me all I was looking for in my research for it. Smooth vertical and lateral movements being the ultimate purpose. Manfrotto is simply a go-to vendor for equipment that just has to work, in the field and in the studio!
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Very smooth movements

Not happy.

15 January 2014
  • Excerpt: Not too happy with this purchase. Nothing against B&H they are great. But literally this thing just collects dust. For me, it is just too bulky and finicky. I have a Manfrotto 701HDV I bought years ago, and it is much better than this 504HD. The 504HD LOOKS pretty, but it doesn't have the elegance it should have for the price.
  • Cons: Complicated Controls

Good for the money

  • Excerpt: This tripod has many features you can't get from high end names for less money. Not sure why they made the locking levers out of plastic, however. Seems like that would be the first thing to break. I'm very happy with this purchase, however. I like the red touches.

Regret buying this

Jo-Anne, B&H Photo
6 November 2013
  • Excerpt: I thought I would save my department some money by purchasing this tripod instead of a Sachtler. Big mistake. The tripod is clumsy to use and one of the legs slips continually so you can't do a long take and expect the camera to be level by the end of the shot unless you lock it off with pony clamps.<br />Horrible for any kind of ENG/EFP work.
  • Cons: Cumbersome, Unstable, Weak Construction
