I have a Gitzo carbon fiber tripod (model 1325) purchased for still photography. It has a flat plate head. I want to use this tripod to mount a 16mm camera that weighs under 10 lbs with lens.
I was told today that it will not take a Sachtler head. The sales person suggested a Sachtler "package" consisting of their DV-6 head and a Sachtler tripod. The head seems fine, but I was less than impressed by the tripod. I prefer the Gitzo that I already own.
Can my tripod be used with any of the heads made for video/film cameras apart from Gitzo's own heads. If so, which ones? If not, how are Gitzo's own heads?
Compatibility of Gitzo tripod
