    Well my camera weighs about 12lbs and I'm tele a lot so I don't want anything that's unstable. Like I said, it's for video.

    Bogen Neotec 458B with 3 different heads. Wish I had got something more sturdy, but it is kinda cool for lighterweight setups

    since theres no gears or levers, setup takes about 5 seconds. weighs under 5lbs without head, so its kinda in the middle of the weight class

    3way pan tilt for when I was using a large format camera. its big and heavy but allows for extreme tightening and more controlled adjustments.

    squeeze handle for sports or shoots when fast movements are needed

    ball head for everyday use and travel, lightest and smallest on the heads

    Gitzo MKII Mountaineer Reporter, Arcaswiss B-1, Wimberly Sidekick
    Manfrotto/Bogen 055MF4 322RC2 QR

    Love the Gitzo, hate the bogen, so flimsy I can barely mount a full body DSLR on it and don't even think about raising the center column.

  24. I'm just dreaming/planning for the future, I keep forgetting that I told my girl that I'll stop buying camera equipment for alittle while so I can pay off other bills.
