Manfrotto Nitrotech N8 Tripod
The Manfrotto Nitrotech N8 Video Head & 546B Pro Tripod kit features an innovative counterbalance system based on a nitrogen piston mechanism. Unlike heads where the counterbalance clicks into place at set levels, the Nitrotech N8 can be precisely adjusted to the weight of your camera rig. With a maximum payload capacity of 17.6 pounds, the N8 is suitable for use with a variety of video cameras. Head features include a sliding camera plate with safety lock, fluid-drag pan and tilt functions, and an illuminated bubble level. This 75mm flat-base head can be used with the included half-ball adapter for maximum flexibility in mounting to the tripod, or to a slider, hi-hat, or other support.
The 546B Pro Video Tripod with Mid-Level Spreader is a two-stage, 75mm-bowl aluminum tripod. This tripod can support up to 44 pounds and it has a height range of 12-61". Its mid-level spreader stabilizes the legs while allowing for some clearance above the ground. The 546B's spiked feet come with rubber overshoes, enabling setups on both smooth floors and uneven surfaces. The spreader can be detached, and each leg can be adjusted independently for use on a staircase or other location with varying-height surfaces. A padded bag is included for carrying this tripod system.
