Questions about this product?
  • Flat Base Head; Half Ball Included
  • Nitrogen Piston Counterbalance Mechanism
  • 8.8 - 26.4 lb Continuous Counterbalance
  • Continuous Variable Pan and Tilt Drag

The Manfrotto 612 Nitrotech Fluid Video Head and Aluminum Twin Leg Tripod with Middle Spreader offers content creators a versatile solution for various applications. A lightweight head, featuring a Nitrogen gas piston mechanism that allows for continuous counterbalance from 8.8 to 26.4 lb., is paired with a robust three-section tripod and removable middle spreader that allows for added stability and more accurate angle adjustment. 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 612 Nitrotech can also be easily mounted on sliders, jibs, and other gear.

The combined maximum height of the head and tripod is 66" and the minimum height is 29". The tripod is designed with twin spiked feet with rubber overshoes, allowing it to be used on soft terrain and flat surfaces. A padded carrying bag is included for the tripod.

Manfrotto 612 Nitrotech Fluid Video Head

The Manfrotto 612 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 612 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 8.8 - 26.4 lb. 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. Instead of having to align and slide in your camera plate from the rear, you're able to conveniently tuck in one side of the plate from the top and then push and click in the other side.

The 612 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 612 Nitrotech include improved resistance to lower operating temperatures in comparison to previous Nitrotech models and improved ergonomics and materials used for the different knobs.
