Hi guys I just want to ask do you know any good low budget fluid head? I was checking Yunteng 950 but i dont know if its that good for smooth pan tilt as they say.

Hi Qventinko – I would avoid the Yunteng 950 because of the non-standard quick release plate: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00K81FI8A/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00K81FI8A&linkCode=as2&tag=videomaker22forum-20
If you can stretch your budget to $75, you can get a really nice fluid head with a standard quick release mounted on an Amazon Basics Video Tripod: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CEH7VG8/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00CEH7VG8&linkCode=as2&tag=videomaker22forum-20
This head is a great value for your money. It is the same head Ravelli uses on the $159.69 Ravelli AVTP Professional: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00139W0XM/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00139W0XM&linkCode=as2&tag=videomaker22forum-20
I have the Ravelli and the head pans and tilts very smoothly. It is also all-metal and very tough. I recommend it highly.
Hope this is helpful and good luck!
