If I use a battery grip with a 40D it seems that it would be necessary to use a T-Shaped Adapter, a camera specific plate and a quick-release clamp. Has anyone used this or a similar configuration? I'm concerned that there might be a small degree of slop.

Is there a way to level the NN5L without changing the length of any of the tripod legs--I can't tell from the images of the NN5L? If not, should I also buy the EZ-Leveler, although it seems the max weight the leveler supports is less than the weight the NN5L head can support?

Appreciate any comments before ordering. Thank you.
