I may need to use a Nikon D800 with 24-70 f2.8 on top of my series 2 pole set. Short of buying a new pano head for this one shoot (I use an RS-1), does anyone have recommendations about keeping it centered/balanced?
You can keep it centered and balanced by using three wires, each one used between top of pole and end of the tripod leg. You can use thin sailing cords to do it of 5mm thickness. Try to build yourself a plate for the top. If you are interested in this, send me an IM.
