    RB67 Tripod recommendation Bogen 3051/3021?

    RB67 users....what tripod are you using/suggest for landscape use? Would a Bogen 3051 be too cumbersome, or maybe a 3021 a better choice for portability and still stable enough for most conditions?
    Thanks

    I picked up an Induro AKB-2 about a month ago, about the same weight as my Tiltall but much more convenient to use. It's rated for MF, but strong enough for my Cambo SC II. It has QR leg locks, ball head, three position leg spread w/locks. Comes with carry bag and strap that works for both bag or tripod alone. Priced lots less than the Manfrotto's. Only point I dont like is no spiked feet, they're an accessory.

    I just got the 3021 legs with a 410 head. It is an amazing setup. It will easily be able to hold the rb. Lots of people use the same setup for LF

    The only crime in this international discussion is that there are Manfrotto part numbers for the whole world except for the US, where the same parts are assigned different Bogen numbers.

    Kind of reminds me of all of the analog TV 'standards' that popped up in the 50's and 60's decades before worldwide pre-recorded video tapes and home machines became available to consumers.
    my real name, imagine that.

    I just picked up a Manfrotto 055XPROB with a 808RC4 3-way pan head. Plenty stable enough for my RB and durable enough to last for years.

    For carrying on my back, I like the Bogen 3030 (no longer made). It sets up quickly, as all three legs open at once, and it uses rocker locks instead of 90-degree flip locks. It does not weigh a lot, but it is solid. It feels much lighter than my 3036 or 3051, but about 2/3 to 3/4 as solid. I never should have sold mine, but I got a great deal on a 3036, which is better for my view camera. Like many tripods, they sell for peanuts on the used market.

    It's weakness is that it cannot get that low to the ground. You need an attachment to do that.

    I use a Manfrotto 055 with a 488 head+hex QR plate adapter. Plenty sturdy since the body's weight doesn't have to shift for landscape/portrait changes.

    I have the Bogen/Manfrotto 3021 and feel it is a good balance between weight and stability with my RB. My ball head needs an upgrade, though...

    I use Manfrotto/Bogen 3221 legs with 3030 head. I find it plenty stable for my RZ67 Pro II.
