You Get Exactly What You Pay For!

  • Excerpt: Yes, this tripod is definitely in the pro-sumer level when it comes to price. However, it is well worth the expense. The head alone is an amazing piece of equipment. It has a very mild learning curve, and once you get used to it, you will be wanting to shoot everything on this tripod. Only downside I have found so far is the size and weight. I want to take it with me everywhere!! But sometimes that is not an option.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Highly Compatible, Improves Performance, Professional Quality
  • Cons: Limited Compatibility

Great video head for the money

  • Excerpt: I've been using a Manfrotto 501 head for years and have noticed recently that the tilt function of the 501 has become stiff so my initial tilting while shooting is now jerky.I shoot a lot of team sports that require a lot of pan and tilt so it was time to upgrade.I've been looking at the 504HD for a while, and have watched the price slowly come since its release.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Smooth motion
  • Cons: Heavy

Good for the money...

  • Excerpt: I use the 504HD head with a DSLR Canon Mark II & a JVC790 video setup. The counterbalance system is a great help for the different weights of the two cameras. For still photography, the system works well for lockdown shots. As for video, tracking a moving shot is fine until the subject stops. I find I must hold the shot steady or I get slight movement as I bring the shot to a stop while continuing to shoot.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp

  • Excerpt: I've used this tripod system almost exclusively for about 8 months and I love it. Great mechanics, really wide range of adjustments for any application, and a really nice value for the build quality and durability of the product. The included bag is super easy to carry and store as well, which is great for when you're packing up the car to travel.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability

Got good head for low cost

16 June 2014
  • Excerpt: Only used it once videoing a dance recital, but it was nearly non-stop panning to follow dancers. My previous head was a Sachtler DV6SB, which is pretty good but won't fit in the 75mm bowl adapter on a Manfrotto 536 tripod... the screw isn't long enough to attach the handle. So I thought I'd try out the new design Manfrotto. My first head was the iconic flat-bottom 501, a friction head, not a fluid head.
  • Pros: Didn't Get Spring-back, Great Head Low Price, Smooth pans and tilts
  • Cons: Counter Balance Limits

Excellent Fluid Head at Reasonable Price

John Giannini, B&H Photo
2 June 2014
  • Excerpt: As a video journalist and one man band, I need a head that is full functioned, light, yet stable and this head fills those requirements. I bought this head because I found that the tilt controls for the Manfrotto 502 head I had been using were difficult to operate and caused camera shake when I moved from a stable shot. The 504HD solves this problem, because it has a tilt release lever on the left side of the head, where it belongs.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp
