What is a Video Tripod? Well I am going to argue that there is no such thing as a Video Tripod. I will give in to agree that there are Video Tripod Heads but the tripod legs are tripod legs. (Even those with spreaders to take a 10kg plus load).
A Video Tripod head could be described as one that allows for a smooth (based on resistance) movement, usually with the use of a long handle. The length of the handle, longer within reason being better, allows for minor movement but when spread over a period of time, is a smooth motion.
We have assembled a number of choices for your viewing. The most prevalent is the range of "Video Tripods" from Manfrotto, Vanguard and for a short time Velbon & Slik .
