  • Correct weight of NN products

    You guys could do us (and yourself) a huge favour if you'd write the correct net. weight for each product into the shop listings.

    Because sometimes not only size matters but also weight.
    For some of your products their is no weight in the data, at least once (see RD 8) it is utterly wrong and for others it is including the case. So right now one can't trust those figures at all.

    Thanks
    Jürgen

    Bring a scale to Portugal :))

    Just out of curiosity, what are you needing the weight figures for?

        Vincèn is right.
        Every gramm matters here, and to find the best solution I also want to compare products also by weight.

            After much searching and help from Smooth, I have found that the Sony NEX-5 camera + Sigma 8mm lens + lens adapter + R1 pano head @ 5 degrees and a monopod give me the smallest, lightest most compact setup that will allow me to shoot 4 around + a hand held Nadir shot. I wanted a compact setup for my bicycle trips.

              Denis, to be precise I assume you use the R1 because you already owned it or want o use it for other purposes, otherwise the R10 should be even lighter, no?
              An what's the overall weight wihtout the monopod?

                juergen,

                I purchased the R1 because I did not know what tilt angle I wanted to use. For my purposes, weight was not so much an issue as image quality and being able to shoot 4 around. I will not give up image quality or increase the number of shots for the sake of weight or compactness. Since I am creating memories that will last forever (or at least until I am gone), I can put up with any extra weight. I will eventually machine a small block that will hold the clamp at 5 degrees and not use the R1 head at all (except for the clamp). That would be the absolute lightest pano head.
