Video Head for Gitzo GT0531 and NEX-6
Mar 27, 2013


New to the site.  I've read many threads and reviews here - great stuff!

Looking for advice regarding a video head.

My current setup: NEX-6 with 16-50 kit lens and 24mm Zeiss.  Gitzo GT0531 tripod.  Am going to get the new Sony external microphone.  I am thinking about fitting the Gitzo with a ReallyRightStuff BH-25 head with lever release, but I want something that will be good for video too.  Can't figure out which lightweight video head will work.

My goals: Video and stills from backpacking trips.  Also family trips with the kids.  About 1/2 of my backcountry trips are solo and I am frustrated with crappy fly fishing videos taken by placing a camera or iphone on a tree stump.  I enjoy making iMovie productions with a mix of stills and video.

Does RRS make a good lightweight head that is great for both stills and video, or is there a better option?

Sony Alpha NEX-6
