Tripod for video?
« on: May 16, 2013, 07:19:57 AM »
OK, I'm finally going to try video on my 7D and 6D - going to Yellowstone in a month.  I have a Manfrotto 190CXPRO4 tripod with a Manfrotto ball head (496.)  I assume video will be much better using a tripod.  Any recommendations for an inexpensive head I could use on the Manfrotto tripod?  Thanks!

I forgot what model Manfrotto tripod I originally got..came with a cheaper video head, which was ok, but I needed to get a QR system that would work on a bunch of things, including the new manfrotto monopod I got.

So, I got this head as a replacement and I'm happy with it so far:
