The innovative photo-movie head is developed to simply be the best and most ideal solution for the new HD DSLRs with embedded video functions. With a single product it is possible to take advantage of an extraordinary Photo Head and a Fully Featured video head. The unique Photo-Movie selector makes switching from shooting photos to videos quick and immediate, experiencing the best of both worlds. In Photo mode the head provides the speed and maximum freedom in all directions, like a ball head combined with an incredibly precise, smooth and controlled movement never experienced before, thanks to the fluid cartridges and an adjustable counter balance control. In Video mode a fully featured video head allows for a precise and fluid movement for pan and tilt with all of the typical video settings, including friction control. The pan bar is reversible for right or left hand users and it can quickly be removed and fixed on a tripod leg, thanks to the included rest clip.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from One must read the specs more carefully This head is only suited for VERY small cameras,even then the handle is no-where long enough.A handle twice the length would be better especially for panning,giving better control..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from When one head is better than two I principally bought this as I needed a new head to use with a Cobra Crane jib. I didn't want to spend a lot and whilst I wanted it principally for video work there times when my existing head for use doing stills wasn't capable of carrying the weight I wanted it to carry. As a consequence when I came across this head I was able to get a unit that was more than capable of carrying the video weight I required plus, when needed I had the versatility of a still head I could flip through 9 degrees. Ths left me feeling I had excellent value for money, and the finish of the unit only improved upon this.

In use the head has not let me down. In fact it has exceeded my expectations. My crane neatly balanced in a neutral position. This was a total load of about 6kg.

My only recommendation to a prospective buyer is get a spare adapter or too so you can have one fitted to your video camera and another to your still camera. I am so glad Manfrotto has added this to their product line

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW - what a head! This new Head from Manfrotto really ticks a lot of the boxes. Very versatile in the range of movement and shooting styles. Very rugged and solid construction with a very cool fininsh that is so Manfrotto. I feel very confident when using the fluid motion that this head delivers. I really like the increments that have been marked for a visible guide to movement on both axis. Well done to the engineers behind this masterpiece.
