Re: My pano setup

For those who asked:

Grip is a Really Right Stuff grip with L-bracket.

Head is a Really Right Stuff BH-25 ultra-light ballhead.

Panning base is a Sunwayfoto DDH-03

Nodal rail is a Sunwayfoto DMP-100

Since taking the picture I've actually modified the setup by fitting the panning base directly onto the ballhead's stem, this has allowed me to save 80 grams in weight.

The components have been chosen in order to minimize bulk and weight whilst still providing a serious, dependable single-row panorama setup. The setup is now fitted to a sirui T-025 carbon fiber tripod. Dead weight (tripod legs + ballhead with panning base) is 836 grams. Add another 120 grams for the nodal rail, and we're still well under a kilo for a full fledged tripod/head/panorama setup that's only 12 inches/30 cm long when folded. Not bad at all, I'd say.
