Manfrotto 128 Video Head Reviews

Best Fluid Head Ever

In combination with a Manfrotto 243 Car Window Pod it holds my 9 lb. spotting scope with no issues. I looked for years and finally found the perfect combination that would support my 95mm swarovski spotting scope.

I upgraded an old tripod base with this head and I am super impressed. The tripod base was probably 15 years old and the Fluid-Head mounted easily following the included instructions. This head brought new life to an system.

Good quality

Good quality head but not as sturdy as my vintage Manfrotto/Bogen 3130 head (no longer manufactured)

Great for video or stills

I have owned this head for many years, purchased from B&H. Originally I bought it for a camcorder to shoot weddings, but recently have adapted it to use with my Nikon Z50 for both stills and videos, with the handle removed. I added an Oben levelling base to it, and an Arca Swiss clamp that attaches to the Manfrotto RC2 clamp so that I can use it with my L brackets. I have it mounted on my Feisol CT3401 tripod. While I don't use it with any really big heavy lenses, I have no doubt it would support them with ease.

Perfect

Boss said my footage was shaky, bought this for my tripod and now I still have a job and a promotion coming my way!

Heavy but worth the weight.

I have three of these on my my spotting scope tripods. Absolutely the best, most convenient heads for birding; well worth the few extra ounces over some other options.

Is this head too big for a window mount?
Asked by: Doug
That will depend on your specific needs and the window you are using. That being said the base diameter for this head is 2.36 inches and the working height is 4.53 inches. It only weighs 35.27 ounces. It may work for your needs depending on those specs.

question

does this not come with a quick release plate if no what kind of quick release plate can this use??
Asked by: Samantha
It does not. I use this primarily for theatricals where I have extended recording and did not need the quick release plate, though it would be nice. An accessory listed for this head is the Oben QRA-R2 Quick Release Assembly with RP-20 Plate which has good reviews. I have not tried it. A search of B&H has other quick release plates. some which also give additional sliding adjustment. Make sure the base has a 1/4 thread or if larger has an adapter bushing to reduce the 3/8 thread down to 1/4 to fit the 1/4 thread on the head.
