    That is either an advantage or not. With many more cameras and accessories than I want to fit with QR plates, the standard tripod screw of the Tiltall is preferable.


    Nsurit is right about the covering material on the Tiltall's top being a problem. I replaced mine with thin rubber gasket material attached with rubber cement.

    In my opinion, the new Tiltalls are a poor comparison to the E. Leitz, Marchioni, Kinghome, Uniphot and Star D tiltall models. They are no better than the newer Chinese tripods, but no worse. If you're not going to spring for Gitzo, don't need a quick release, won't be working bigger than 4x5, then an older Tiltall might be just the thing for you.

    i have a black tiltall bought from b+h back in 1988 .. i still use it often
    if you get an old one ... make sure it has the threaded head on the bottom of the center column.
    one of the legs unscrews, the threaded head screws into it
    ... and you have a monopod .... sometimes monos are helpful, sometimes they aren't ...

    Mine is too old to be a monopod, but that is a nice feature.

    I rather like it not being a quick-release system. I've had some history with losing quick release adaptors.
