    Supporting our beloved Mamiyas

    Hi Guys

    What's the best tripod and tripod head to use with an RZ?
    In your opinions.
    I feel my current tripod head isn't supporting me enough!
    This makes me sad.

    I cant say its the best Holly but I'm using a Bogen 3021 with a 3047 head. I'm sure the legs are plenty strong enough but I need to use the rig with my 360mm lens some more to decide on the head. So far though I think its ok.

    I've got Giotto legs and a manfrotto head. You might want to check the threads in the LF forum. Anything that will work for a LF camera should be fine for the RZ.

    Hi Holly,

    I'm happy with a Manfrotto (Bogen to the American bogans) 190D with a Manfrotto 410 geared head. This works for my Wista field 4x5 as well. The geared head is not so pricy and is a joy to use.

    Should you find yourself shooting straight downwards the Manfrotto horizontal bar (adding a counterweight), or macro, Manfrotto has horizontal bars or incremental geared sliders that fit into this system too.

    Mine came from Vanbar in Sydney.

    It seems that one item that digital won't supercede is a good tripod.

    Regards - Ross

    Even my 3001 Bogen with 3029 head works great...! I added a quick release setup so it's always ready to go...very sturdy!
