just remember you look and admire what you like and buy what you are going to actually use.

if you have unlimited funds or a large budget then you can play all you want.

it looks like you are in the NYC area. in October there is the big photo gear show at the Javitts center. I suggest going there and admiring things and it will help you decide what you need or break your bank

Arca Swiss is generally represented there by one of its "friends"

Ordering today and i think its going to be the p0. I would get the hybrid for use of the product studio & lifestyle/editorial shots, but its $$$. Doing some video also, not sure if that matters on the heads i listed i was undecided on.

now what clamp assy are you going with?

their lever clamp leaves a bit to be desired.

I would advise the screw type on theirs.

Yep a very simple and strong design that works better in a number of ways I much prefer versatility

now that all depends on your use factor. none of the still camera heads have the dampening mechanism in them. a reasonably priced "fluid" type head. but you will need to adapt the plate onto the other one.
