photo and/or video head for slider
on Sep 16, 2014 at 12:59:42 pm

Hi, All,

I have a Rhino Slider Kit (2ft and 4ft), and I am exploring options for which video and or photo head(s)and mounting options to use.

Has anyone used thw Manfrotto MH055M8-Q5, which is BOTH a photo and video head?

Some reviews do not look great for smooth video moves, but some reviews are happy. Thought I'd ask on this forum.

Does anyone have other recommendations for a video head and/or photo head for a slider?

I have a 503HDV head right now, but it's generally on my tripod, and I might like to keep a separate head just devoted to my slider kit - so I am more likely to use the slider.
