I posted up about a very effective (and cheap) Velbon fluid head a few weeks back and it literally sold out in a few hours. For around $26-29 dollars, it's a great way to add on a dedicated Fluid head for camera dollies, sliders, etc. You can find the original video, article, and other comments about the fluid here: http://cheesycam.com/cheap-velbon-video-fluid-head-review/.
A few of the units are back in stock at B&H (click here).

or at Amazon (click here) available at both B&H and Amazon (click here)

Isn't it maddening to see this head go from $25 to $40 in 6 months. I bought one for $30 from B&H last month and Adorama had it for the same price. Now both retailers have them listed at $40 (currently out of stock). LEECHES!!! >:-(
@Emm, thanks. 😀
@Elliot - If its a light camera the Velbon works well on a monopod.
Haha thamks a bunch. 😀 I gotta wait until they're back in stock though...
Sould I just buy the wf717 that I already have?
I'm putting this on a manfrotto 560 monopod.
Damn, out of stock again! The only ones are waay over priced on ebay. I could see the price going up... Damn.
Noooo, I was going to buy this next week. Now they will all be sold out! Thanks Em.
Would this work for the 4ft jib?
Do you know where can I find these in Europe? The lowest price I could find on ebay, shipped from HK is 53 Euros (that's about 73 USD), I just need a cheap (but good) second fluid head.
