I have a Gitzo GT3541LS systematic tripod that I use with my 5DMKII and Markins ball head for photography right now.
I'm wanting to start dipping into doing some video using these legs and a new fluid video head but I'm not sure what I need to get.
I'm going to assume I'll remove the Markins ball head, and then I'll just have this flat tripod where the fluid head will go.
The Manfrotto 502HD looks flat and might just go right on there and I'd be done? But what if I went with the 504HD it appears to have a different setup?
My plan is to just get some still video for my kids YouTube channel where they will just discuss and show off toys and video games.
There may be a few pan and tilts etc, and I also plan to eventually buy a Cinevate Duzi camera slider for some cool product shots etc.
So based on these two video heads or maybe something similar, what would I need to go with these legs I currently own? I don't think I need to invest in new tripod legs as these seem very capable?
I mean I suppose if the fluid video head came with some legs of its own and was reasonably priced, I'd consider it and just have a still camera setup and my video setup.
But I'm just curious what else I might need with this GT3541LS tripod, do I need to put a leveling base on? I know this tripod is a systematic and has other features with addons etc, do I need to use/get any of that?
Thanks for any advice.
