Best Fluid Head Tripod under $200
Alas you won't get a fluid head for $200 Your budget will get a fluid effect design. (True fluid heads are $1000's)
Fluid effect can work reasonably well in some respects but their smoothness can be effected by the payload on them.
Best try before you buy with the camera you have in mind.
