The Manfrotto MH055M8-Q5 Photo-Movie Tripod Head offers optimal function for still photo shooting as well as videography. Primarily designed for DSLR cameras with movie shooting ability, the tripod head features a Photo-Video selector for quickly switching between the two modes.
In Photo mode, the MH055M8-Q5 head offers free movement in all directions just like a typical ball head. Equipped with fluid cartridges and an adjustable counterbalance control, the tripod head provides precise, smooth, and controlled movement.
In Video mode, the head restricts all-direction movement to precise pan-and-tilt operation, which works well with videography. The MH055M8-Q5 head comes with a pan bar and offers fluid movement as well as friction control. The pan bar is reversible for right- or left-handed users and can be quickly detached. An included rest clip allows the pan bar to be attached to a tripod leg after being removed. A Q5 quick release plate is included.
