    Default Diff between Video Tripod and normal tripod?

    Hi,

    Can I know know whats the main diff between a video tripod and a normal camera one? Easier to pan?

    and is it possible to shoot video on a normal camera tripod easily, cos i thought u can pan on camera tripod too?

    you can pan and tilt easier on a video tripod as the head is more fluid. that is not to say you can't do it with a normal camera tripod but you will find it a little more difficult to execute a smooth pan/tilt with it.

    there are photographers who shoot with long lenses use a video head instead as it gives them fluid motion in tracking the subject.

    thx for the reply, i bought the slik pro 400dx so i can use it for both. At $200, wonder if its abit expensive considering the 2nd hand ones are going for only $100 buck.
