I'm using the Agnos TCPS on a Manfrotto 161 mk2 tripod which weighs a ton, but it does give me some interesting aerial effects since it goes to 9'7".
My question, how do you transport your pano heads? Do you pull off the bracket from the rotation base and put it back on site using previous markings? Do you unscrew the whole thing from the tripod and carry it in its own case?
Ain't nothing friendlier in the world than a muddy wet dog.
