I want to be able to pan and tilt, but also roll, basically when the camera can roll but most tripods that can roll do not have the anchor point of the roll in the middle. Is there one where you can do a roll where the anchor point is in the middle, if that makes sense?

No. That's a custom-built rig for each camera, since they're all different sizes. The only non-custom way would be to do it with a motorized gimbal like a Movi, and control the roll axis.

Oh okay thanks. There is also those tripods where you can do a 90 degree roll, without the anchorpoint being in the middle, but for some reason manfrotto doesn't seem to make any and they are not as popular.

When I read it, it sounds like it could very well be. Basically I want to be able to this move, like you see in this clip at 1:33 into the clip:

The tango plate will do that, but that was probably done on a remote head with a third axis.

Okay thanks. The tango plate is quite costly to get though. If I have to may just get a Zhiyun Crane 2, since I can use it for several things in the future, or just get a tripod, where you can do a 90 degree roll, only the anchor point of the roll is not in the middle, like this one here. Do you think a tripod head like this can perform a good 90 degree roll, or will it not be smooth enough since I think it was meant for still photography maybe?
