Our take on the Velbon FHD61QN Video Tripod Head by Crutchfield's Woody Sherman
This oil-fluid tripod head has independent two-way pan/tilt action for smooth camera moves with video cameras weighing up to 10 pounds. It can be operated by either hand and features a sliding, lockable quick-release plate. Fluid heads are a must for professional-looking video camera moves.
While this unit works with many other tripods, it is an ideal mate for our Velbon Sherpa+ 630 Tripod.
