March 27, 2015


Tweet
If you haven’t heard about the Kingjoy VT-3510 Video Head, it’s a damn close version of Manfrotto’s popular 701HDV (now discontinued). So much that the pan handles are interchangeable between the two heads, but of course the best part is that the Kingjoy is VT-3510 is compatible with Manfrotto’s 501PL QR plate.
