View Full Version : NN3 MkII and Canon 5D + 15mm fisheye - Tripod upgrade needed?

Hi all,

I am very interested in getting a NN3 MkII for my Canon 5D + Canon 15mm fisheye setup.

I was wondering if I need an upgrade in my tripod (I mean another tripod) to better benefit from the NN3 or if my Manfrotto model 718SHB, which has a fixed head with a dove tail quick mounting plate, will be fine for my setup.

I currently like the tripod a lot for it's size and weight. I just don't like the max. height (1.23m) but this is the tradeoff I took to carry less weight arround.

I appreciate any comments.

best regards,

you can mount NN3II on to the tripod through the QR plate without any problem.
