      Comments about Vinten V4045-0001 Vision 8AS Fluid Head (Black):

      I bought this to use with Sony EX3 but unfortunately the counterweight specs is beyond the camera's weight even after adding a light and IDX battery so had to return it. Not Vinten's fault. I went up to the NY Super Store to look at this but none was on display so blindly bought it anyway. Got a Vision Blue3 instead and it is perfect! The 8AS has to be a good head though. I would recommend this for heavier cameras.
