      Hi, folks!

      I have a Sony NX3 camera and I’m looking at a Sachtler Ace Fluid head and Tripod combo to film animals in the wild. The camera is a little over 5.5 lbs and the tripod combo is rated for 8.8 lbs.

      http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/822102-REG/Sachtler_1001_Ace_Fluid_Head_with.html

      Is this going to be enough support to allow for smooth pursuit and panning shots?

      Thanks!

           If the tripod is rated for more weight than your camera weighs, you should be golden.  However, if you have accessories that you'll be attaching to your camera, you'll need to take those into account.
