    Hi,

    I think it was one of these: http://www.velbon.co.uk/newvelbon/pa...amaximini.html

    This is the one I use: http://www.gitzo.com/product/72038.7...section_Tripod

    Regards,

    Heinz

    The Gitzo sure looks like a good one. But kinda heavy no? As I recall the Velbon was robust enuf for a pole mount application used with common sense ie: remove lens cap:001_unsure:

    I decided for the Gitzo cause I like to have more weight at the foot of the construction. Second, it comes with a plate to directly place the rotator or monopod on top. It is the "power disk".
    Third, you can extend the legs and set them in three different positions. Lowest position gives a circle of 76cm, and you can easily place your foot on it to stabilize for longer poles.

    But yes, you are right, it is heavier. Velbon 590gr max load 1.5kg. Gitzo 1,34 kg max load 18kg

    Btw: I suppose most of us once upon a time forgot to take off the lens cap. And using a pole, another good trick is to set the wireless remote control on top of the camera to "On" as well. Not the easiest job to raise and get the camera down again. I don't ask for doing it for nothing, cause I forgot these little things.
