When choosing your tripod, it all comes down to whether you want to shoot videos or click pictures. After you have decided on the kind of work you want to do, you decide on the tripod head you would invest into. It is worth giving long thought to because a tripod and its head will last you for years to come. 

A video tripod head can be purchased as an integrated accessory along with your choice of video tripod. Components of most professional video tripods are replaceable. This means you can choose exactly which head goes on top of your three-legged friend.

How to choose a video tripod head

It is essential to understand the benefits of even the best video tripod head before investing in them. Your video head needs are decided by the content you create and the movement you need. 

Basic needs

Most lightweight video tripods have a video ball head attached to them. They are the most commonly available tripod head for, both, photography as well as videography. It is a very simple mechanism that allows you to rotate the camera from side to side. It can be very useful in most situations.

Based on control

To ensure more control a lot of professional video camera tripods use a three-way head. Also known as a pan-tilt head, they are more expensive than other video heads due to the precision it provides. You can individually adjust the pan, tilt, and camera orientation without ruining the adjustment of the other. 

If you need a smooth panning tripod, yet want an inexpensive video tripod, then a fluid head is the best solution for you. Video tripods and fluid heads go hand-in-hand with each other.

Here are a couple of the best budget fluid heads you can invest in:

  • Digitek DPVH-120 Platinum Professional Video Head (Black)

  • Manfrotto MKCOMPACTACN-BK Compact Action Aluminium Tripod with Hybrid Head, Black

Based on weight

Your tripod head must be able to carry the weight of your camera and lens combination. A heavy-duty tripod for a video camera is required to mount professional setups. All high-end studio shoots use a heavy-duty tripod which is relatively expensive as well. 

A gimbal head for video is a reasonable alternative while using lenses that are on the heavier side.

Smaller tripods use quick release plates. This makes attaching and detaching the camera easier and faster. Most tripods come with spirit levels. It helps one to identify if the tripod head is level or not. When the bubble in the spirit level is centered, the tripod head is level.
