    [...]combine this head with the Sunpak 7500 Pro tripod, which has good legs but a not so great head, and you can take it off easily and replace it with the Velbon.The PH-368, especially for its price, is a perfect buy. Once adjusted properly, it allows for smooth movement even at full zoom. Unlike the heads I tried previously it doesn't stick to a position and then snap when you try to tilt up or down, causing a sudden jump in the video. It can be adjusted to any pressure you want. Of course it takes a little practice like everything else, but for the price it's an excellent choice.

    Not bad for the money.

    The one that came on my original Velbon tripod broke pretty quickly and I ordered this as a replacement. It seems to be constructed better than the one that came on the original.

          It's very nicely priced, but it could be a bit more sturdy.

          This head was advertised as an accessory for the 33'' Revo Slider I was buying so I figured why not.

          Its not bad! but can be a little shaky.

          I wanted to use the same hot shoe and head from my velbon videomate 607 tripod on a monopod.I found this!. The only thing I didn't like is the 1/4 head mount instead of a 3/8 thread.

            I got this for my slider and it worked excellent! I have two Miller fluid heads for my sticks but this will really come in handy for the slider and monopod, places where I need decent performance yet don't need to drop big dollars.

                At first glance out of the packaging I thought I had bought another potentially bad head, But I only bought it for one purpose. However now that I've set it up I'm going to be using it for more. With the exception of the little gap of non-fluid movement when changing the direction of motion, for the money I can't complain at all. Definitely satisfied.

                  Comments about Velbon PH-368 Fluid Head:

                  Very nice feel but I found panning had too much resistance, even with adjustment knob loosened. I like to tinker and found if you completely unscrew the pan resistance knob and pull it out (along with semi-attached fork), you can then pull the rotating bottom section of the head off. What you'll find is a cone that's coated with viscous, glue-like grease. I applied a tiny dab of Vaseline, put everything back together (very simple) and now it pans much more easily. You can use the adjustment knob to add the resistance back in as needed.

                    the fluid head is very smooth. sometimes when panning or tilting the base rocks back and forth and can cause video to be shaky, besides that this fluid head is great for the price.

                                  For less than $ I got a fluid tripod head that has good smooth motions that I can throw on my legs or anything else I feel like mounting it on. The only downside is the fact the quick release portion seems like it's made from some cheap plastic. For $ though I'm not complaining.

                                      Love it, light weight, very smooth, not the most expensive but works like it is.

                                        I've been using this fluid head on my Konova K2 Slider and it works flawlessly. It's really simple to use and set up. It's smooth, kind of light weight (not too light either), built pretty sturdily, and it's really durable!One thing that I wanted to mention to everyone who is looking to mount this on a slider, keep in mind that you have to unscrew the 3/8" to 1/4" thread adapter that is already screwed in when it's shipped. My slider has a 1/4" so I was really bummed out when I first got it BUT all you have to do is unscrew the adapter and voila, you have a 1/4" that screws in perfectly!It's nice to have the versatility to go from 3/8" to 1/4" and back to 3/8" with the included adapter.One thing that I found a little flimsy are the knobs. When I tighten them to stay in one place, if I tighten it hard it makes this plastic creaking noise so I always think that I'm going to break it but it hasn't been really a problem except for my paranoia of tightening it too much. Also the knob/screw that looses and tightens the handle to the head often comes loose and forces me to constantly retighten it over and over again, but that's not too big of an issue for me personally.I hope someone found this useful!Best.

                                          I bought this fluid head to work with the Gepe 40 Heavy Duty Camera Slider, and it works well!
                                          It's not the sturdiest or strongest fluid head out there, but for the price and for my uses, it gets the job done.
