      Does anyone have any experience with the Sunpak VideoPRO-M, Hakuba Videomate 738, or the new “pro” Bescor fluid-head tripod? I’m looking to upgrade my $80 Quantaray (Ritz Camera/Sunpak) tripd with “fluid-effect” head to the real deal. I’m a part-time wedding professional looking for a lightweight and portable tripod with smooth (especially for tilting) fluid action that can hold my DVC80 camcorder, which weighs about 6 lbs with tape, large battery, and wireless mic receiver attached.

      Thanks,

      T.J.

      I think that this one will hold your camera. It’s $79.95.

      Videomaker just rated the Bogen 501 #1. I had been thinking about it and got it a couple days ago – very nice. $139 at B&H.
