One could resort to digging
My Mannfrotto 055 will also flat out completely, but I havn't tried it with a 8kg
Linhof yet. Ole can I have yours
Using a long Makrotele as the 200 mm f/4.0 Mikronikkor or the Sigma 180mm f/3.5 Makro helps alot on the angle issue unless you really want to below your subjects. Then you have to resort to the digging.
