    I can't really decide between the Velbon CX 888 and the Velbon CX 480.

    The 888 is $20 more.

    Here are the specs.

    480:
    Features a 2-way PH-248 fluid panhead. Light weight and ideal for compact video/8mm camcorders. Radial braced, 3-section legs. The CX-480 also features a Spirit level.
