The head itself is nice, but it makes a crackling sound when moving up and down, which will ruin any quiet shots that you might take. Because this is a video head, it is important to have a quiet fluid head. When I sent the head to get fixed (with my own money), they returned it with a note, "Noise normal. Possibly put mic off camera." This is ridiculous. Unfortunately, I waited too long to return the head.
