I've decided to go with the SI-2K Mini. Pretty excited. But now I have to reassess and re-budget the package that I was originally going to buy for the HVX200. Does anyone know what a good fluid head would be for the SI?

I was going to get the Cartoni Focus for the HVX200, but the Mini is much smaller, and I'm pretty sure, much lighter. The problem is that I may upgrade in January to the full SI-2K with the on board DVR. So I would like a fluid head to accommodate both. Any suggestions or ideas? Thanks. :beer:

I'll answer myself for the sake of anyone else who is interested.

The SI-2K will weigh up to 25 lbs with the full package (DVR recorder attached). So, the Cartoni Focus fluid head is perhaps a little light weight for the SI. However, to save money on a more robust, read: $4,000, fluid head, I may get the Focus head until such time as I upgrade from the Mini to the full package. I will have to wait until I get the camera and then check out the Focus in person.

Cool. Keep us informed, Mars.

Yo. No doubt. Mars, I like your style.
