fluid head vs geared head?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am undecided which head is best for travelling with my celestron c90.

I have been using an alt az alluminium tripod but it`s a bit bulky for travel.

I`ve been looking at the manfrotto 190 xpro with either a fluid head or a geared head. The geared  410 junior is a reasonable price but still works out dearer than a flud head. Is the geared head worth the extra money and how good are the fluid heads such as the 501 and the 502?

I would choose a geared head every time, you have much more control and it should carry more weight.  :icon_biggrin:
