Excerpt: I am shooting a little 3D documentary on the fountains of Kansas City. (Not for public consumption.) I owned the Manfrotto legs but the three way locking head was great for stills not very useful for motion shots. This mini head allows me to set up quickly and add smooth pans and tilts to my shots.
Pros: Attaches Firmly, Ease Of Attachment, Good Stability, Handles Larger Camcorder, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp
Excerpt: I purchased this fluid head to reduce the amount of equipment I bring on trips. I own a couple 701 and 502 heads. Both of which are great, but too bulky for light trips. I was expecting a something with far less usability than my other heads. I was way off.
Excerpt: Very nice video head on a budget. I decided on this head for the price, functions and the fact that I already had a Bogen tripod. I removed the squeeze ball head and replaced it with this video head.
Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp
Excerpt: Was looking for a smaller fluid pan head for using on a carbon fiber tripod ..mainly for camera but also a leupold spotting scope. This fit perfectly and is a quality product that just feels right in the hands. It will be my go to combo from now on. Could not be happier
Summary: I have a Swarovski 80mm scope. I had been using Manfrotto metal legs and 128RC head. I purchased the Manfrotto 190CX3 carbon fiber legs to save 2 lbs. I purchased this 700RC2 head to save 1 lb over the 128RC head. Both heads use the same quick release plate which works very well.
Excerpt: We use this head on tripods and tree camera arms to film hunting videos. It is perfect for the Canon G10 and G30 cameras that we have which weigh no more than 3 lbs. For this type of camera, you can't go wrong!
Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion
