T8 Fluid Head Review

Smooth Camera Gear

Smooth Camera Gear are a new camera support system manufacturer designing their products in Australia and building them in China. I picked up their T8 Fluid head recently after seeing a number of decent reviews online. It comes in at a price point that sits between entry level pro fluid head options from the likes of Sachtler and Cartoni, and the higher end prosumer options like those in the Manfrotto 502/504 range. Smooth Camera Gear have deliberately priced the T8 at this range, taking advantage of the somewhat significant jump in price between high level prosumer fluid heads and pro fluid heads. Its a very attractive option when you take into consideration that while also being great value for money, its a very durable and well built fluid head that has few downsides.
