It also has a mounting plate and Easy Link Connector built in for additional accessory attachment without adding bulk to your camera.

    Continuous Counterbalance System Supports 12kg

    Manfrotto Nitrotech N12 Fluid Video Head employs a nitrogen piston driven mechanism to offer adjustable continuous counterbalance. This allows you to fine tune the balance of the tripod to your camera and gear of up to 12kg without stepping, ideal for heavy rigs and gear.

    Fluid Drag System and Illuminated Bubble

    The variable fluid drag system enables a smooth 360° pan and +90 to -70° tilt, perfect for capturing sharp videos without shake. The Nitrotech N12 also features an illuminated bubble level so you can get an accurate balance check at a glance even in low light.

    Ergonomic Controls

    The N12 Fluid Head makes operating your rig easy and accessible. Adjustments to the balance and drag can be made using the ergonomic left side controls leaving your right hand free to manage the panhandle.

    Sliding Plate with Ruler

    Simply snap your camera on and off the tripod head using the side-locking system on the included sliding head attachment for speed and security. A printed metric ruler on the sliding plate is also a helpful guide for positioning and balance.

    Easy Link Connector for Accessories

    Integrated Easy Link Connectors allow you to attach additional accessories without putting the extra weight on your camera body for a more refined balance. Using the 3/8-inch thread connector, you can attach monitors, lights and rangefinders directly to the head via the convenient rosette mounts so the whole set up can rotate much smoother.

    Aluminium Head with 75mm Flat Base

    The 75mm flat base is made of aluminium, making the Manfrotto Nitrotech N12 Fluid Head sturdy and lightweight. It’s also compatible with a half ball adapter so you can configure your tripod to your own specifications with sliders and articulating arms.
