    Look for the original Marchioni Bros. 4602 Tiltall tripod. I have 3 ( don't ask) and they have been used w/ Linhof Kardan Color monorail and a Wista DX without a problem. I also used them with my Kowa 6 med. format. They are great, simple, sturdy tripods.

    Adjust the ball to level the panoramic plate, then mount the camera using the knob underneath the ball to tighten the screw. The camera is kept level during panning. For those occasions when you need to tilt the whole camera, the ball lets you tilt up to 30 degrees in any direction.

    Caveat: I haven't used this tripod yet, I've only just ordered it. It's going to carry my Linhof Color monorail 4x5. I figure the simplified construction, relative to a full three-way head, will mean better stability and less vibration.

    I have a 2032 and this system works very well. Simple and all you need for a view camera or a Hasselblad.

    Just an update, I ended up getting a Tiltall (Marchioni 4602) on eBay. I'm hoping that it can handle my LF needs.
