It's really too heavy for this camera! The head is rated for 14 pounds. I also used to have an S1h with a full cage and atomos on this head. Also no problem for a Komodo. But - my giant camera is too much for this!
It's worked fine and it locks well, but the counter balance weight is limited to 14lbs. And that is important to me when I shoot on a 1200mm and need tripod head safety. I need to be sure the camera will bounce back if I let go. No problem for smaller cameras like a Black magic. The half ball mount can be easily removed.Look at the photos so. You know what hat you are getting. Here's the official information. 504X fluid video head is the evolution of the hugely successful 504HD. It's a more compact and lighter version that finally comes with flat base (base diameter 75 mm), developed to meet the needs of the most demanding videographers. The head is made from a brand-new catching aluminium design, and has a maximum payload of 26.4 lbs.
Utilising Manfrotto's new fluid technology, the head allows you to capture judder-free smooth motion pans and tilts.
