Finally tripod manufacturers are now catching up with the DSLR/mirrorless offering a fluid head fit for purpose, except sports work.
I bought one of these last week for my Panasonic GH4R along with the 555B Levelling Centre Column. Finally I can release my Sacthler ACE tripod from duties using it with my JVC LS300 as intended.
The centre levelling is a dream something I have missed from using photographic tripods most of my photographic life.
The tripod head is very smooth both pan and tilt though I still won’t be using it for much beyond interviews. I already had the 055 PRO legs so I bought the the Manfrotto 755XB legs with centre levelling column (£189) swapped out the centre column with my 055 PRO legs so in total it cost me £300. (No doubt you can buy all the above as a complete kit for less than I paid.)
Total cost is £200 for the legs and £99 for the head and a further £149 for the the centre levelling column.
