Thanks in advance!

I have a Gitzo 1548 with the rationelle low profile head and mount my Gandolfi 8x10 (light camera) and my Korona 12x20 (heavy camera) on it. In both instances I have always gotten very sharp negatives even under windy conditions. The 1548 is not cheap, nor it is light weight for a CF tripod, but as they say, you get what you pay for. I do not hesitate to recommend it, OTOH, a Berlebach tripod seems to be a wise choice if you want to go with wood.
