Feisol ball heads (CB-50DC vs CB-50D)
Jun 7, 2010

Hi all,

I'm in the process of violating Thom Hogan's rules on buying tripods, but I'm broke so I'm prepared to forgive myself at this time

Does anyone have any experience with the CB-50DC or CB-50D ball heads from Feisol? Also, do you know what the differences between them are? I'm possibly blinding by excitement and unable to read clearly, but I can't see any substantial differences listed on the pages.

I'm looking at a CT-3442 tripod ( http://www.feisoluk.com/p78/CT-3442---Medium-Tournament-Class-Carbon-Fibre-Tripod/product_info.html ) and the head looks like a good spec.

I was considering getting a Markins Q3 to replace my Markins M10, but this is a good price, so I'm asking - what's the catch ?

The setup I plan to use is as follows:
Nikon D300s with one of the following lenses at a time:

  • Sigma 17-50 f/2.8

  • Nikon 70-300

  • Sigma 105mm Macro

On very rare occasions I might add an SB800 flash but that is off camera 90% of the time.

Thanks in advance,
