    This item has been in the "check back soon" category for a long while now, and personally, I am very eager to get it. Handholding the pole against even a light wind made this "test" HDR pano very difficult (as seen by the stitching errors). The original intention was to extend the pole even higher, and I think a solid tripod and adapter would help here!

    Anyone else eager for this adapter?

    Great to hear Nick!
    Wish there was a way to pre-order this from Bill...
  4. Compatible Tripods?

    #4

    I recently purchased the tripod adapter and am looking forward to doing some pole photography. However, the triopod I currently own is not compatible (no female thread on the bottom of the center column).

    Is there a list anywhere of tripod brands and model numbers that are compatible with the tripod adapter? Even just a partial list would be helpful. Thanks!

    I'm preparing one but there are some many different tripods in the field.... A future version of the tripod adapter will exist that will be compatible with tripods without thread at bottom of column. I know all Benro Carbon and Aluminium basic models are compatible A/C-157,158,257,258,357,358. You just have to unscrew the hung at bottom of column and you can then screw in column the thread included with the pole and that's it :)

    what tripod model do you have? A Manfrotto one? The tripod adapter works for male thread as well.

    Hi Randy,

    these manfrotto models work:

    http://www.manfrotto.com/product/837...section_tripod

    Adapter: http://www.kamera-express.nl/product/manfrotto-190laa-/

    http://mediacdn.shopatron.com/media/...pdf?1272346402 this one works with 190LAA at the end of the center column. You can only use models where center column allows the attachment of the adapter. Not the ones with red leveler ball on top.

    Cheers,
    Heinz

    Yes, I have a Manfrotto 055MF3 and just don't see any way to attach the tripod adapter to the bottom of the center column. Just want to make sure I get a compatible replacement!
