From Manfrotto comes the newest technology in video supports: Nitrotech!

Nitrotech (item number MVHN8AHUS) is a revolutionary video head that combines all of the most successful features of the Manfrotto Video Heads range with a breakthrough technology for continuous counterbalance. Independant and professional video operators who work both in a studio and in dynamic enviroments are keen on using the latest cameras in combination with video accessories. Camera body sizes, even for high professional cameras, are becoming smaller and smaller - but with the size decrease - performance needs are increasing, with video resolution moving to 8K. Also, cameras are modular, with many accessories being attached to the camera body (handles, follow focus, external monitors, etc.)

Videographer needs include the following:

  • The possibility to mount different camera configurations & accessories – all of them perfectly counterbalanced!
  • Working with compact and light equipment.
  • The need for versatile gear, that can be used on different kinds of support (tripod, sliders etc.)

Nitrotech is not a replacement of the Bridging Technology but a complement to the full range of Manfrotto video heads. From the BeFree Live to the Bridging Technology, to the Nitrotech, there is something for everyone!
