    Just got in a new Manfrotto 701HDV Pro Fluid Video Head and mounted it up to some Manfrotto 755XB sticks I won on Ebay. Taking my home videos up a notch! LOL This parade was the perfect trial for the new setup. I am really impressed I have to say. I was concerned after seeing a few YouTube test videos that looked like the head was sticking and not panning as smooth as I was hoping, but either it was in the encoding or the upload conversion for them because mine is just as smooth as I can operate it. Like silk! Had a horrible time uploading the 1080p version of this video to Vimeo. Had to encode a 720p version. The 1080p was a pretty watered down encode anyway at the length of this video, but still it concerns me that I can’t upload videos under 5 gigs as advertised without them failing time and time again. I would have liked to see how Vimeo handled the 1080p. Oh well. Youtube took it. No fancy editing; just a pretty nice subject to test out the new video head. I stayed up cutting the clips together and encoding it so I could get it uploaded asap. Hopefully it will be a good advert for the 701 and any other amateurs looking to step up their game a little.
