Manfrotto 701RC2 Fluid Video Head – Small and lightweight, this fluid video and spotting scope head is capable of accommodating a payload of up to 4 kg, and is ideal for set-ups such as a fully equipped 3 CCD mini DV camcorder or a spotting scope combined with a digital still or video camera for digiscoping purposes. It is equipped with a fixed 1.5 kg counterbalance spring which combined with a camera plate attachment made of a 200PL touch and go/sliding plate which can shift from +15mm to -15mm from the 0 point to optimize the position of the counterbalance spring and deliver a wide range of balancing positions.
Two-way "pan & tilt" heads are favoured for video work and are built to be used "open" (i.e. with movements not locked off). Head features such as fluid cartridges (which provide resistance to jarring and shake transmitted from the operator to the camera via the pan bar) keep camera movements as controlled and smooth as possible. Our video heads offer a range of friction and counterbalance systems to regulate the weight shift of heavy equipment.
