Any good fairly low priced Fluid Monopod + Fluid Head Combinations that anyone can recommend for use with compact system cameras that shoot video? Thanks.

True "fluid heads" are beyond my budget. The best I've been able to do is "fluid like", meaning relatively smooth panning. I usually assume I'll have to clip off the beginning and end as there will be a slight jerk, but once in motion it will be smooth enough for what I do.


My current favorite is a Dolica I bought in a Costco store in December. It was only $90. Costco still has it on their website. They also have a $260 "deluxe" Dolica that has "an ultra smooth fluid pan and tilt movement" as well as a monopod feature.

SD - a $152 Manfrotto 560B-1 fluid monopod with a $105 Manfrotto 128RC Micro Fluid Head will do a great job for cameras up to 8 lbs.


Manfrotto makes top quality tripods, monopods and fluid heads. Very smooth, and in this case, affordable.


Hope this is helpful!
