The head supports up to 8 kg and features a Nitrogen gas piston mechanism that allows for continuous counterbalance across the full payload range. It's also designed with improved fluid technology that allows smooth and judder-free pan and tilt movements. Other key features of the head include a side lock camera plate system and two rosette adapters each with a 3/8-16 accessory port and Manfrotto and ARRI anti-rotation slots. A half ball is included to convert the flat base head to fit the tripod, which has a 100mm bowl and 75mm bowl adapter.With a native flat base, the 608 Nitrotech can also be easily mounted on sliders, jibs, and other gear. The combined maximum height of the head and tripod is 175 cm and the minimum height is only 49 cm. The tripod is designed with twin spiked feet, allowing it to be used on soft terrain when you remove the spreader. Alternatively, optional Manfrotto 565 rubber shoes can be attached for use on flat surfaces. A padded carrying bag is included for the tripod.
Manfrotto 608 Nitrotech Fluid Video Head. The Manfrotto 608 Nitrotech is a flat base fluid video head designed for the versatility needs of the independent content creator who's engaged in different types of projects.
Thanks to its flat base with a 3/8-16 mounting thread, as well as its relatively compact and lightweight design, the head can easily be moved between a compatible tripod and a slider, jib, monopod, and various other gear. One of the key features of the 608 Nitrotech is its Nitrogen gas piston counterbalance mechanism (hence, Nitrotech), which allows continuous counterbalance adjustment-as opposed to stepped or fixed-for the head's full payload range of 0 - 8 kg. Additionally, an upgraded fluid technology significantly improves continuously variable drag performance and enables smooth and judder-free pan and tilt movements.
Providing further flexibility, the head's camera plate system features a side lock mechanism that allows for quicker and safer mounting of your camera plate and camera load. The 608 Nitrotech offers two rosette mounts for attaching the included pan bar on either the left or right side. These rosettes also feature Manfrotto's Easy Link system for mounting accessories via an articulating arm.
Each rosette has a 3/8-16 port in the center and both Manfrotto and ARRI anti-rotation slots surrounding the mounting port. The Easy Link system is designed to support Manfrotto articulating arms equipped with anti-rotation pins or those with ARRI locating pins in order to prevent twisting. At the same time, standard articulating arms can also be attached.
Other features of the 608 Nitrotech include improved resistance to lower operating temperatures in comparison to previous Nitrotech models and improved ergonomics and materials used for the different knobs. Flat base with 3/8-16 mounting thread allowing for use on tripods, sliders, jibs, monopods, and other support gear.Nitrogen gas piston counterbalance mechanism allowing for continuous counterbalance adjustment for the full payload range of 0 - 8 kg. Upgraded fluid technology enabling smooth and judder-free pan and tilt movements via continuously variable drag performance. Easier, safer side lock camera plate mechanism.
