How long does a lens have to be, to be an issue for a Tripod?
Mar 20, 2013

If you have a DSLR with a 'long' lens, how long must the lens be (or how much does it have to weigh), before you attach the lens to the tripod (to shift the center of gravity), instead of the camera body to the tripod?

The above assumes the combined weight of the camera & lens is less than the rated capacity of both the head & the tripod (or monopod).
