Any advice gratefully received.

I would recommend a video head that takes a longer plate of arca swiss style. Then you can balance your equipment to some extent. The marvelous ATX 95mm is quite front heavy for some reason..

For example this one

I have seen people struggling with the ATX95 and a MANFROTTO 128RC but I won't recommend it.
