      this is one area you do not want to go cheap, IMO. you need a good fluid head on your sticks. don’t sacrifice the quality of your shoot by using a “cheap” head.

      nicameet,

      In the video industry, a “pan & tilt head” usually means a remote-control head. B&H sells such things, made by Vicon, Bosch, Cambo, Glidecam, Varizoom, and others. Here’s an example:

      http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/224490-REG/VariZoom_VZ_MC100_VZ_MC100_Pan_and_Tilt.html

      BTW, did you mean 360 degrees not just for pan, but for tilt as well?

      On the other hand, if you mean a fluid head to mount on a tripod, the Manfrotto 516 and 519 are each rated at 22 lbs capacity. The 503HDV is only rated at 17.6 lbs capacity, but is much more affordable.

      Hope this helps,

      Ken
