    In an effor to shave off those ever so precious last few grams of equpiment weight (just do not look at the 20+ pounds on my "spare tire"), here is my latest creation:



    Note the shaved monopod head. 5 degree tilt. A hand held Nadir patch shot is more than enough to cover what little bit of this pano head is left in the picture.

    Once again well done Dennis,

    Will there be the rally version with a lot of wholes in it too?

    This is for the BMX version:

    Finally have had time to play with my NEX-5/Samyang 7.5 lens combo. Here is the 2lb 1oz solution (total weight including the monopod) I now have for cycling and hiking.




    Only the clamp from my R1 pano head remains.

    Hi Dennis,

    Thx for sharing. Nice looking.
    Wow, you machine the ring from solid aluminum! That is more expensive than our lens ring.
    BTW, our lens ring for Samyang 7.5mm is shipping next week.
