    The prism is great for the studio, and very heavy for more mobile work.

    another point, the WLF is useless when you need the camera up high unless you're a giant. That was probably the first thing I noticed (I'm only 5'5), I set up the tripod looking over a fence, go to compose the shot... wait a minute, not tall enough!

    particularly for photographing people on stage or slightly elevated, the WLF will have you shooting up people's dresses, not always the best look...

    Question about the above. Does anyone rotate the panhead so that you look through the WLF from the side when you need the camera up higher? I did a shoot yesterday and used a stool and/or chair. I forgot about rotating the head.
