Which foot for the 200-400?
« on: June 13, 2013, 04:10:48 PM »
I just got the 200-400 and replaced the foot with RRS replacement.  I noticed that there was a mini foot in the trunk.  Is this normal with the new Great Whites?  My 500 is nearing 13 years old (time for photo-bar mitzvah) and only came with one foot. 

It seems the new mini foot is even smaller than RRS replacement foot.

The new big whites do come with a monopod foot.

...replaced the foot with RRS replacement.

Now you can start walking on your two spare feet...   ;)

Does the monopod foot work well on a tripod?

With the 500/600 II, some people have used the monopod foot mounted backwards for correct balance when using an extender.  The RRS foot solves that issue.  Not sure that the 200-400 would require that for balance.
