Software & Accessories / Ballhead for Gitzo 2542L
« on: October 26, 2014, 05:04:12 PM »
Going to replace ballhead and would like to get RRS BH-55 but thinking the size/weight might make a 2 series top heavy. Any thoughts if this is too big of head for these legs?

If 55 is too big, any other recommendations between BH-40, Kirk, Markins Q20, Acratech that would fit these legs better? Right now biggest lens is 70-300L and not sure if I would go much bigger (maybe 400 5.6) and if I did I would probably have to go to gitzo 3 series anyway.

Software & Accessories / Advice on which Gitzo tripod
« on: May 19, 2014, 10:39:57 AM »
I am in the process of replacing my 25 year old Bogen tripod and because of the great advice on this forum I am going to splurge for the Gitzo's. I am using a 6D and the longest lens I anticipate using is a 70-300L or maybe a 100-400 when the next version comes around.

I am leaning towards the GT2542L since it is $100 or so cheaper than the GT2541/2531 and like the weight/price. But am wondering if that is enough support or if I should move up to the GT2542LS or GT2542/2532 for more weight capacity/stability. This would mean a couple hundred more dollars though.

I would like to save the half a pound and the $200 but don't want to undersize myself. Appreciate any advice from users.


Lenses / AFMA 70-300L

Just picked up a refurb 70-300L and was wondering if it seems odd that when testing 300 at a normal testing distance it needs about +4 for the DOF to be centered but at minimum focus distance with the shallow DOF it needs -3 to for the subject to be in focus.
