Hi!

I am looking for a solution for a tripod system which I can use for photography AND videography for HDSLRs... I would like to shoot photography and videography with Canon 5D Mark ii. I don't want to buy 2 tripods....

What should I buy? Do you recommend a hybrid solution? If yes, which one?

Manfrotto makes the Mh005 Q5 (Manfrotto MH055M8-Q5) head. Can you recommend it?

Thanks!

I guess I should have a complete system for both video and cinema...

No reason you can't shoot stills from a fluid-head on a solid set of sticks.

I'd refrain though from trying to do proper video from a three-way still head. ;)

LOL oh RRS, just couldnt help yourselves could ya? Those video support accessories are probably going to be so expensive theyll put you in the price range of some Sachtler gear which would be a WAY smarter way to go. Same with the slider and Kessler Crane. But of course they are hoping to reel in the photographer DSLR video crowd that knows and trusts the RRS name yet doesnt know any better about video.
