    New FLM Video with Ball Head and Large Format Camera

    Hi,

    Just a note to let you know that I have posted a new FLM video, this one featuring the FLM CB-58FTR ball head with a very heavy Kodak Master 8x10 camera.

    Music courtesy of Dweezil Zappa.

    Enjoy!

    Don't you need a lens though Ari

    I was always very wary of ball heads but have a small (3 year old) Slik (Digital) tripod that fits inside a small backpack and they are so much better than when I first used one in the 1960's.

    That's an interesting video, an excellent ball-head, but it also shows how camera/tripod stabitily depends on good positioning of the tripod socket on a camera, so that it's well balanced, poor positioning affects all tripod heads.

    A lens is great, especially when making photos
    I was always a 3-way head user, and staunchly believed that a ball head was so wrong for large format, but I've been proven wrong by these little marvels of engineering.
    The tilt lock makes leveling a breeze.

    Thanks, Ian.
