Im thinking of attaching a DOF adaptor to my Hv20. will the M25 work perfectly on this?
2007 November 23rd, 13:57
It should work just fine. It has 2 stage counter balance. 1 the head automatically will keep from falling froward... You push the head down it comes back up on its own... The 2nd would be that the plate slides 3 inches forward or 3 inches back. So depending on how heavy that DOF is, you would probably slide the plate 3" back to help with the counter balance.

does the velbon 7000 have pull back (when you stop panning does it move the opposite way?)?

I've never used a Velbon. A friend said that the one he used did.
Most "cheaper" tripods do. Which is why i'm still amazed with the M25

Just to clarify, the _total_ travel is 3 inches - 1 1/2 " forward or 1 1/2 " back.

I read on a review once that pullback means that it is not a true fluid head, Vlebon or otherwise. So I guess those $7000 Sachtler fluid heads at B&H must be pretty smoooooooooooooth.

As far as the "true fluid head" goes. I've never used a velbon.

Hey, tripod's can be confusing, how? The legs matter, best if they are cross-braced, that the leg locks work and HOLD, that the feet have rubber tips and spikes if possible and that they don't weigh a ton for field work.
The magic part of the tripod is the head and this is where you should put most of your money.
Often buying secondhand and separately can be an economical way to go, but know your stuff, it is an option for us vultures.
You can match and mismatch heads and legs to your hearts content; bogen/manfrotto, slik, velbon etc, just know the thread measurements. If you are ever in a store with a huge range check out their stock and have a play.

2007 December 13th, 13:42

Could anyone recommend some good-for-the-price fluid head tripods? I don't usually use a tripod, but recently it's begun to dawn on me that it might be a good idea to pick one up. I'm not terribly wealthy (read: a poor filmmaker), so around $100 would be a great price point.
I couldn't find a relevant topic on the forums, so I decided to make one of my own, but if there is already a topic in regards to this, please point me in the correct direction.

Hi Maxwell, welcome to the forum!
This topic has come up here once or twice or thrice before ...
