Small and lightweight, this fluid video head is capable of accommodating a payload of up to 9.0 lbs, and is ideal for set-ups such as a fully equipped 3 CCD mini DV camcorder (GL2 or PDX10) or a spotting scope combined with a digital still or video camera for digiscoping purposes.
The 701RC2 is one of the most compact and lightweight two way heads found on the market and was designed principally to support the latest digital video equipment, including mini DV and the latest prosumer/professional compact HI DEFINITION camcorders. In addition, the 701RC2 is well-suited for still photography cameras with medium and long telephoto lenses.
It is equipped with a fixed 3.3 lb counterbalance spring and a sliding plate (from +15mm to - 15mm) to deliver a wide range of balancing positions. Fluid drag on the 701RC2 is fixed like on the 700RC2 with pan and tilt locks.
The 701RC2 has a fixed length pan bar with a soft handle and separate locking mechanisms to the head to adjust in many positions. The sliding quick release video plate system is based on the 3157N and is equipped with the usual VHS registration pin.
