As I mentioned in the Weifeng WF-595T Traveller Alu-Mg Tripod Review the Weifeng WF-533H 2way Pan-Tilt Video Head is mainly coming as a kit with the WF-533T Flip Lock classic tripod.
However since it stands out as a fairly cheap solution for shooting video it can be found sold separately.
The price tag was quite tempting for me to get this head, which may described as an early attempt for a fluid head from a Chinese manufacturer engaged in mass tripod production, intended mostly for internal Chinese market consumption and as an OEM for some known brands.
Nonetheless, as also mentioned in the WF-595T review, this review is also published as a reference for comparison of older to more up to date designs.
