Leofoto BV-15 70mm Fluid Video Head with PU-100D 100x38mm Quick Release Plate
The Leofoto BV-15 Fluid Video Head is an affordable and professional grade fluid head with drag control on both pan, and tilt to ensure smooth operation. Suitable for birding photography and videography. The head pans 360°, is indexed for repeatability, and has a tilt range of 90 to 75°. Likewise, the camera platform is indexed, making it fast and easy to rebalance your setup on the head. Two bubble levels (on the pan base and one on the camera platform) allow you to confirm your head is level. Handle mounting rosettes allow you to mount the included pan handle to either side of the head for operator comfort, and individual pan and tilt locks provide security when you need to either only tilt or pan.

Purchased fluid head for use on my Leofoto Ranger LS-325CEX with leveling head feature. Primary use is for my Nikon 100-400 lens. Head came with an Arca Swiss plate with a 1/4 tripod screw and a 3/8 tripod screw. Nikon lens foot has two 1/4 tripod screw, simple matter to swap out new plate for one with correct size attachment screws. The fluid head easily supports the weight of lens and camera. When properly adjusted the fluid head easily returns to a level horizontal position. I use the head unlocked for complete freedom of movement, it is more than adequate to eliminate any camera shake, even at 400mm. Very pleased with product and as a side note, the customer service provided by Leofoto is some of the best in the industry.
