Best Fluid Head Tripod under $200
In the market for a nice fluid head tripod. Looking for a good buy under $200 and hoping for suggestions. A friend of mine uses a Davis & Sanford ProVista 7518, but the legs locks are a but difficult to secure. I think over all it's very nice but thought there might be a better value out there. Thanks in advance.
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.
