What Manfrotto Kit would work best.
We have a Pentax K7 at work and need to shoot short videos for our youtube channel.

I have a Pentax Kr at home and would use it occasionally.

The Zeikos 77" 3-Section Heavy-Duty Aluminum Photo & Video Tripod with 3-Way Pan Head is an affordable camera support system will help you capture clear, crisp photos but could also shine as a support for shooting video as well. With a load capacity of 13.2 lb, you'll be able to attach just about any compact camcorder or digital camera – even a DSLR with a telephoto lens. Featuring 3-section aluminum legs that reach a very tall maximum height of 77", the tripod is topped off by a true fluid pan head with dual control handles.

The Manfrotto MH055M8-Q5 Photo-Movie Tripod Head with 755XB Aluminum Video Tripod Kit from B&H is a professional-level yet affordable pair of camera support products that serves photography as well as videography. In that regard the tripod & head kit might be the perfect choice for executing hybrid video/photo projects with a DSLR camera.

The magnesium head features a fluid cartridge for smooth movement. It moves freely in its photo mode, like a typical ball head. In video mode, motion is restricted to the appropriate dimensions: pan and tilt. Equipped with a reversible pan bar, the MH055M8-Q5 features a continuously adjustable pan & tilt drag that starts at zero. Counterbalance is adjustable, and the system supports loads up to 12.6 lb.
