While wandering the show floor at NAB, I of course stopped in to see what was up at the Manfrotto booth – as I love my Manfrotto 685B monopod – wanting to see what was new and BAM! I found this new gem – a head that is built for BOTH stills and video! Introducing the Manfrotto MH055M8-Q5 055 MAG Photo-Movie Head.
Update: scroll to bottom to see a video the bui brothers filmed with drew gardner about this video/stills head!

Note: Drew talks about this new head starting at 2:18 in this video:
British photographer Drew Gardner shows how the new Manfrotto Photo-Movie head is an extremely flexible and useful tool to couple to the HD-DSLR cameras, and get stills and videos done with the same support.
