The video system includes the Manfrotto NITROTECH 612 Fluid Video Head and the 645 Fast Twin Carbon Fiber Tripod.
The NITROTECH 612 Manfrotto fluid video head is provided with the innovative Nitrogen piston mechanism, which allows continuous counterbalance. NITROTECH 612 ensures precise control of a camera with accessories weighing from 4 to 12kg (8.8-26.4 lbs). Extremely smooth movement is guaranteed thanks to the fluidity function on both pan and tilt. The camera can be attached easily, safely and quickly to the 180mm sliding plate and secured to the head with a side-lock mechanism. External monitors and accessories can be securely mounted on the head thanks to a 3/8” Easy Link equipped with an anti-rotation mechanism. The NITROTECH 612 has a flat base mount with a standard 3/8” thread that is highly versatile for different support combinations (tripod, slider, jib or crane).
The 645 FTT Fast Twin Carbon Tripod features a double tubing and Lever-Lock lever technology for the most robust support ever. The tripod is provided with a 2 in 1 half ball: a standard 100mm bowl compatible with a 75mm adapter (available as accessory) to enable the use of a wider range of video heads. It also features a middle spreader lock. However, the 3-angle selectors make the use of a spreader a matter of optional preference.
This range was developed with the primary objective of making video shooting easier by reducing set up times and maintenance. The synchronized closure mechanisms between the upper and lower locks, enable videographers to control the entire leg with a single lock and get to work in record time. The new tripod provides maximum versatility, supporting the use of a broad choice of heads, and ensuring the utmost rigidity while also being extremely lightweight.
Moreover, it is compatible with the 2 in 1 ground and middle telescopic spreader (sold as an optional accessory) and it features a 3-angle selection mechanism for easy set up. It is equipped with spiked feet with rubber overshoes for a firm grip and adaptability to the most diverse shooting locations.
