I have a Swarovski 80mm scope. I had been using Manfrotto metal legs and 128RC head. I purchased the Manfrotto 190CX3 carbon fiber legs to save 2 lbs. I purchased this 700RC2 head to save 1 lb over the 128RC head. Both heads use the same quick release plate which works very well.

The 700RC2 is a good head for the price giving a nice fluid-like action for video work. At 10x the head can give smooth action with a careful touch - hard to achieve with most other semi-fluid heads.

    Economical with good fluid-like action

    Minimal amount of adjustments

I've been a fan of Manfrotto since I became interested in photography many years ago for the consistent quality of goods that they produce. <br /><br />When I needed a new head much research was performed but once again Manfrotto seemed to tick all the boxes so I purchased the 700RC2 from WEX (of...

A really smooth fluid video head for the price of a friction &quot;fluid effect&quot; head. No perceptible lag when changing direction and locking knobs fall easily to hand.<br /><br />I've mounted it on Manfrotto 055 legs to support a Canon HF S21 HD camcorder, a lightweight combination capable of...

I use this with a compact telescope that's within the specified weight limit. Does the job without fuss, reasonably compact and lightweight: just fine for what I want.

I bought the 700RC2 to use on my Manfrotto 055XB Tripod (that normally sports an 808RC4 head for still photography) as my Video Tripod was a waste of time &ndash; I will not mention the manufacture.

    Changing Head

3 May 2010

I've been very pleased with this head, I use it with a small mini DV camera and also with my still camera when I want faster adjustment than I can easily get with the proper &quot;stills&quot; head, for example when shooting wildlife.

    Excellent value for money, Good solid feel, works with video stills and telescopes

    swapping heads is fiddly

I replaced a tripod head on a carbon fiber tripod which relyed on a threaded handle system to clamp the head in position. The difference with the Manfrotto head is amazing. I can just aim my camera or spotting scope at a target and have the position of the device stay fixed without any twisting or...
