The SVH-520 Fluid Video Head is lightweight and ergonomic weighing only 1.2lbs. Supporting up to 8.8lbs of gear this head is made for video creators, but does not exclude still photographers looking to use it as well. The built-in counter balance spring creates an appropriate repulsive force, enabling precise tilt action. Then combine the tilt action with a smooth left to right pan, it makes it hard to miss with this head. The angled pan handle can be positioned for left or right-hand control and rotated a full 360-degrees so the handle's angle is in the best position for any situation. The handle can also be removed to save space.
Not to be excluded, the smooth pan and tilt movements make this head great for those using spotting scopes and binoculars.
The head uses the SLIK quick release system for easy mounting and removal from your camera. The QR plate uses a folding wing-nut to rotate the standard 1/4-20 thread post onto the camera so no tool is need to attach or detach from your camera.
Straight out of the box you will have options for 3/8-16 or 1/4-20 mounting points to screw onto your tripod. The 1/4-20 option will require a simple screw in adapter.
