    I have just refinished my 12X20 Korona and tried mounting it on my Zone VI tripod with 3047 head. It seems to be a bit much weight for the head. The tripod itself is solid. Do you have any ideas of a head that would handle the weight (about 32 lbs)? Does anyone have experience with the Majestic geared head? Is Reis the only other option? Thanks for any input.

    I have used the Majestic on massive studio camera stands with 8x10 metal monorails and they are seriously rugged. I can't imagine anything that can be lifted onto it that it can't handle.

    PS. I think you ULF guys are nuts (I'm totally jealous )
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    The Majestic is the way to go. Get it with the large 6x7 plate. Much more reasonably priced than the &#39;Reis, and very common on ebay.

    Thanks for the input guys. I will look on Ebay to see if I can pick one of the heads up. Kerik do you have a model number of that particular head by chance?

    The Gitzo G1570M handles my 11x14" amply. Should work for 12x20" if you want a three-way pan head design, and it&#39;s relatively lightweight, if that&#39;s a concern.
