The 55 Mag Photo-Movie Head with Q5 Quick Release from Manfrotto is an innovative photo-movie head developed to simply be the best and most ideal solution for HD Digital SLRs with embedded video functions.
The unique Photo-Movie selector makes switching from shooting photos to videos quick and immediate, experiencing the best of both worlds.
In Photo mode the head provides the speed and maximum freedom in all directions, like a ball head combined with an incredibly precise, smooth and controlled movement never experienced before, thanks to the fluid cartridges and an adjustable counter balance control. In Video mode a fully featured video head allows for a precise and fluid movement for pan and tilt with all of the typical video settings, including friction control. The pan bar is reversible for right or left hand users and it can quickly be removed and fixed on a tripod leg, thanks to the included rest clip.
