The 509HD's FDS (Fluid Drag System) is based on variable fluid cartridges on both the tilt and pan axis. The ergonomics of the controls have been noticeably improved to make use of the FDS even easier. Movement around the axis is smoothed by ball-bearing units which remove all unwanted vibration, which aids control support.

The 509HD supports kit up to 28.8lb (13kg) at 55mm centre of gravity, and two 3/8” threads on the top plate allow accessories - such as monitors and arms - to be fitted straight to the head, thus eliminating the need for extra clamps, saving set-up time, and freeing the video camera’s hot shoe for other components.
509HD also features the ABR (Advanced Balancing Recorder) for precision when fixing equipment, ensuring a perfect balancing position, saving time and making this operation much more efficient, accurate and fast.
