Outstanding Video Head! Sure, it's not a Sachtler or Cartoni Focus, but for the price this head beats all for the smooth, solid tilting. My FS5 rig is an awkward one to balance on, say, a 504HD, but with the N8 I can tilt all the way forward and back without spending over four digits.

Head is smooth, easy to balance and feels really good to control. The base slide clip, lock and release is a bit cumbersome and has room for improvement, this will take some practice and is more difficult with a heavy camera attached.

This head is equally good on tripods and monopods. I use it for working with my Canon C200 camera, as well as for my DSLR combo - a Canon 5D MarkIII plus a Blackmagic Video Assist monitor.

The Nitrotech N8 that I order came defected out of the box from either the factory or it got damage during shipping! I would like to order it again but I'm afraid that this can be a potential issue in the future, so I'm contenplating to buy a Sachtler ACE with the Flow tech 75 tripod instead.

For me, this was step up from Manfrotto's 501HDV video head that came with a tripod kit purchased in 2010. This was a huge improvement over the 501HDV, which didn't provide sufficient counterbalance for my Sony PMW-EX1R.

On paper, this head seems to be great- sinusoidal counterbalance, continuous friction adjustment, locks and controls on the left side, decent quick release mechanism, flat base.In practice, the head just feels cheap. It isn't smooth in panning or tilting.

This is the best tripod in it's price class. It's extremely smooth to operate, is very light weight and can handle mid weight cameras. Compared to other Manfrotto tripods it's far far lighter than a 504 head, and smoother than a 509.

Nice head for the price. I really needed a flat base head. It has however been recalled and Manfrotto is just stupid to deal with. I have not had any issues with mine. Manfrotto was already supposed to have a fix, but there has been no communication to that the fix is ready.

Smooth diagonal pans are easy to perform. Threw it on some Gitzo legs, nice and light. The nitrogen capsule helps a lot. Keeps my teleprompter rig upright and stable. Gamechanger.

My camera is only about 6 pounds (DVX200) so I am not pushing the capability of this head in terms of claimed weight handling. That said, it has very smooth pan and tilt. I shoot mostly stage work from the back of an auditorium so I am moderately zoomed in and need to make a lot of following motion...
