New FLM Video with Ball Head and Large Format Camera
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.

I saw the tripod , camera and ballhead over the weekend very impressive equipment Ari.
Hey Bob, thank you, and it was great meeting you last week-end.
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

The tilt lock makes leveling a breeze.
