Shopping for Professional Video Tripod Heads

Professional video tripod heads align cameras into the precise position you want them, with ease and precision. Some models hold the camera rock steady, while others allow a fluid-like movement for a smooth arc. There are different tripod heads available, so make sure you get one that satisfies your specific needs.
 

What Are Video Tripod Heads?

While a tripod is a portable stand or frame that stabilizes and elevates a camera, a tripod head is the part that attaches your camera to the professional video tripod legs. It usually has a quick-release plate, and allows you to fine-tune your shooting angle.


Types of Tripod Heads

There are several types of tripod heads. You should choose one that suits your shooting style.

Ball Heads

This is probably the most popular type of tripod head. It features a rotating ball that lets you position the camera in any angle, with a locking screw to fasten the ball in position. This flexibility makes it ideal for shooting macro subjects and for still photography. Also, the ball heads lack some protrusions that other types of tripod heads have. Their minimalist design makes them perfect for travel.

Pan and Tilt Heads

These heads come with two axes that allow you to pan and tilt the camera side to side or up and down. They have a long handle that helps you make smooth movements during filming. This makes it possible to make fine positioning adjustments on these professional video tripod systems.

Gimbal Heads

Gimbal heads hold long telephoto lenses while allowing freedom of movement. This makes them popular with wildlife photographers. You can swivel the camera left and right or up and down. However, the horizontal position is limited to the length and angle of the tripod legs.

Fluid Heads

Fluid video heads contain a sealed liquid to create a mini hydraulic system that allows you to smoothly and steadily move your camera. They’re especially useful with compact camcorders. Many models, such as some Manfrotto tripod fluid heads, provide a 360-degree panning rotation, while others have fixed rotations.

Pistol Grip Heads

With their full-handed grip mechanism, these tripod heads give you steady, one-handed control over the precise camera position. Most of these head models have tension dials that easily and precisely help you adjust the position of the camera.

Motorized Tripod Heads

Motorized heads offer a more automated approach to moving your DSLR camera. They use battery-powered motors to smoothly move the camera.
