The Manfrotto 504HD is just amazing. I’m obviously a Sachtler fan, but this head is fantastic bang for your buck. Yes, I said, bang for your buck. Its load capacity is 7.5kgs, which means you can happily use this guy with your RED Epic but check out the 509 if you’re going to be using it with long zooms.
We pair our tripod heads with Manfrotto 545B aluminium tripod legs with ground spreader.
