    Got it - thank you.
  • Replied in What problems?
    This is on reply to what? It has been a long thread, thanks to contribution from everyone.
  • Replied in What problems?
    Thanks a lot. But won't the lens be dangling from the body and straining the mount?
  • Replied in What problems?
    Correct- not meant to have hands off that stick lol. Just need to think of a nice head with it. I waited to buy that 200-500mm lens but didnt know I would spend another $500 on gear just to support ...

    I read a lot of good stuff on ishooter cobra monopod with base. Any thoughts on using with a big lens?
  • Replied in What problems?
    The rotation on the stock nikon collar is fine with clicks demarking the white dots. Only problem is the anchoring on the foot is not that string from what I hear and experienced during some lens ...

    Thanks Tord. Stupid question is there any merit to attaching the tripod collar to the monopod thread directly (without any head)? I would have to swivel the monopod itself for shooting though. Any ...

    Got it - but the Sirui head you use is like a 3 way tilt similar to the video one. Not sure that is fluid to maneuver a tekephoto like a ball head, no?

    I get your point, thanks. So you need support from a trippd to go with a gimbal, right?
  • Replied in Tower test
    Ones I checked say u need a certain thread at the bottom of  monopod. Mine has just the plastic feet - maybe they are removable. Will check
  • Replied in Tower test
    Thanks Tord, but the thing is at least for the time being I am not considering going back to shooting from a hide with a static approach. So big reason for me to get that nikon lens is to go ...

    Thanks , seems I was out for long lol.and this base fits any monopod? Or specific to certain ones? Thanks for the info
  • Replied in Tower test
    Thanks for the context. What is the difference between a monopod and a monopod base?

    I have a small manfrotto monoppd 678B but is not sturdy at all. I think with a gimbal 3 axis it is better to use a tripod for maneuverability, right?
  • Replied in Tower test
    Thank you. Your tripod is rated slightly higher than mine for weight capacity. So you think my 190x will be fine with a gimbal? Just wanted to make sure. I agree that handheld is the most flexible ...

    Question on gimbal heads. Can I get this gimbal head on my existing Manfrotto 190x legs? Or do I need a heavy tripod legs to match the gimbal? What are your thoughts please? Thanks
  • Replied in Tower test
    Thanks. Is it solid enough to support the 200-500mm? Thanks

    Thanks afoton

    Thank you. I cannot find it using the link you provided but will look for it somewhere else.

    Tord not sure I follow. The d7100 is DX format so it has 1.5 crop factor. The 1.3x on top of that is a feature in the d7100 that does not use the entire sensor but like 60% of it, so it gives like ...
