Same. The Sirui ball head seems to handle the weight of my A7, Metabones and 70-200 2.8 no problems at all. Not a huge fan of the Sirui release plate needing a screwdriver or Allen key to remove it though. Pain in the arse when moving it between the camera body, Metabones or lens mounts. Is small and light like the rest of the set-up though... I guess I should just suck it up and buy some spares!!

I really wish I knew how to drive the 7D a lot better, but I am slowly getting there. The other camera body is a 400D, to which the 7D was a massive upgrade!

:-)

Hopefully the lenses are all able to be seen.



Nice one Malcy! :thumbsup:

Bigfoot... just to give you an idea as to how compact the Sirui T-025X (with ballhead on) is.

Still got a bit of Himalayan dirt ingrained in it. :D

It'll be great for your portability requirement, Bigfoot. Some Transformer poses to get you all hot & bothered during your wait...

Hey Rob, thanks for the talk last night learnt quite a bit. What was the little manual pano mount you had and where did you get it from?

Hi slim, glad you could make it.

The pano head was a Novoflex VR Slim. Nice little unit. I shoot astro at 24mm with it and normal pano's at 50mm. its good for up to 100-120mm or so I think.

Bought it from Tim Poulton via One of a kind, was about $650 , not sure who supplies them (if anyone) in NZ.

Sorry to hear that, Bigfoot. August is not faraway, but I guess it's a steady hand until then.

For the first time ever I'm getting rid of camera stuff. A manfrotto tripod and some lenses are going on eBay to fund a fuji x100 purchase. I think I can just about be cost neutral for gear which is gathering dust and a shiny new (2nd hand) toy

Good move, Chris. The Fuji is an excellent camera.
I've got my eye on a good condition DS M3 down in Singapore, but am still not 100% on the self-justification yet, as a part of me would still prefer to head back to MF. The M3 makes rational sense, due to being able to use lenses I already have, and having all of the Rangefinder form advantages, but then I remember the zen of MF, and...
I'm retrogressing at a high rate of knots.
