Re: Best tripod head for BIF... Dead arm syndrome in full effect

Thanks so much to everyone who replied. I like the idea of the Manfrotto lens support. Next time I am at Samy's I will take a look at that and the different heads suggested here. I have already been battling elbow pain and do not want to end up with a torn elbow. I feel for you guys who have been injured and will take this as a warning to try to behave myself.

I have been doing strengthening exercises but there is only so much you can do when you are just too small to support a big lens handheld. I have spent the day going through my photos and while I got some great ones I can't help but think what a 500mm would accomplish at a place like Bosque.
