Video. I have the fluid head but I haven't used it yet. I'm fond of it... but I WANTED to love it... I think longer feet without the ball would make me happy, but I did use the ball to get the shaft perpendicular to the ground, so I'm complaining for very little reason.
I picked up a manfrotto with the feet... the 5d mkiii plus a lens unstable if the monopod is extended... but if I keep the neck strap around my neck... I minimize the risk of it falling due to being unbalanced.
I tightened the ball and it isn't bad, but I feel as though I am lubing it up on the ball to keep it firm, but smooth.
It is heavy... but nothing a trip or two to three gym can't solve.
Do you have the one i have, or the video version with the semi pivoting feet? Mines pretty stable as long as it's in controlled environments... and that's with my 5d3 and 24-105... When using the 70-200, i have the collar so it's more balanced
