I'm currently in the process of looking for a fluid tripod head. Right now my two main comparisons are:
1) Manfrotto 501HDV Pro Video Head
2) Manfrotto 701HDV Pro Video Mini Head
What are the two main differences here between one being a mini head and the other regular? If I'm going to spend the money on it should I just go for the 501 because it will be better down the road in terms of being able to support more weight?
Also, the reason I'm looking for a manfrotto is because I have a QR plate for my glidecam and want a tripod that I can easily put it on without having to remove the plate.
Thanks a lot M&A! I will give karma for helpful answers!
