What’s the difference between a fluid head and a micro fluid head?
I believe the difference is that a micro fluid head is smaller and is made for smaller consumer cameras.
Would there be any difference in performance?
Probably, since there was a HUGE difference between my old micro “fluid” head and my Bogen 503 fluid head.
Also, in the specs, for tilt and pan drag, it says “not applicable”, and some others it says “1 fixed”. What does that mean?
Tilt and pan drag is the amount of drag you have when you pan or tilt. A lot of drag creates resistance whereas minimal drag creates the opposite. Cheaper heads have a fixed amount of drag, but the better heads let you adjust the amount of drag.
