Re: Looking for a light weight Ball Head for Gitzo GT1542T Series 1 Traveler 6x Carbon Fiber Tripod

Well, I pulled the trigger on the GT1542T Series 1 yesterday.  Adorama is selling it for $499 with $40 rebate it will be only $459.  I think it is a great price for this tripod.

Now I need to buy the ballhead and the plates to go with it.  With all the good help I am getting I am leaning towards Makins Q3t unless I get real good data to go with some other product.

Regarding plates; looks like they are camera body and lens specific.  There isn't much price difference between RRS and Markins plates.  Not sure what would be the deciding criteria between the two.  Help...
