The Cartoni H102 HiDV2 Video Tripod System video tripod system consists of the HiDV fluid head, APTP 2-stage aluminum alloy tripod, P731 mid-level spreader, B458 rubber feet, and the B410 soft case. This system offers professional level head movement, sturdy support and transport for handheld size HDV camcorders.

Fluid Head
The capable yet compact HiDV fluid head was designed specifically for use with compact high definition Mini-DV camcorders. Being physically small, yet recording much more detail created the need for an appropriately scaled fluid head which would provide smooth, jitter-free movements to simulate the inertial profile of larger, heavier cameras on larger heads.
Tripod
The Action-Pro double-stage aluminum alloy tripod combines superb torsional rigidity with the lightest weight possible specifically for run-and-gun ENG applications.
Payload Integrity
With the P731 mid-level spreader and B458 rubber feet, payload integrity is ensured regardless of terrain.
Soft Case
The B410 soft case allows easy transport and completes the system.

    Easy to set-up and level. Came with a small screw that needed to be removed to let shoe slide into place.

    Comments about Cartoni H102 HiDV2 Video Tripod System:

    I love this tripod! And I've been saving up my nickels and dimes for years to afford one so good. We used it outdoors in 9degree temps for hours over Xmas and the fluid head did fine. I am still figuring out how to fine tune the P&T drags - these settings are not easy to decipher. I was looking for a smaller fluid head as this one can handle cameras much larger than mine, but since I couldn't find just what I wanted I went with this one. In my local university's RTF department they use this brand all the time for student check in and out; so I know it is durable. Hope you like it as much as I do.
