I've recently bought Manfrotto 701HDV with Manfrotto 055XPROB tripod for my increased videography tasks. Manfrotto makes totally decent products, and I'm very happy with this kit I've got. Given the fact that 701HDV is a video head with panning smoothing, I've decided to do a little test to show how smooth it works. But you should keep in mind that smoothness of moving is not only the benefit of a head itself - you have to practice a little too to do so.
