Manfrotto Debuts 509 HD Head

The folks for Cinema 5D got a look at a new offering from Manfrotto SXSW.  Manfrotto has taken the “Bridge Technology,” that was first introduced with the 504 fluid  head and has applied it to their new, larger 509 HD head. The 509 is a very light weight head that’s capable of supporting payloads up to 22lbs, and with the “ABR,” system you can precisely balance that load. I looks like Manfrotto is getting serious with their video offerings.
