    The 8x10 KMV weighs 13lb. Add a lens and your'e talking 16-17 lb. So choose a tripod with a rated weight of at least 20lb. We used a long-discontinued Quick-Set "Samson" for the KMV we had at Kodak, or sometimes a Majestic.

    Majestic tripds are sturdy and cheap enough used, the trick is to find one with a 3/8 camera screw! Way more economical than a Ries. I should know, I have 3 Ries! L

    Oh the C1, yeah, I've worked in studios with those. I think I still have some scars from getting hooked on the sharp edges.

    You are right though, the master view is about 10 lbs not 10Kg!!!

    The 8023 Ries is rated 10kg or 21lbs. So I should look for a lightweight tripod that can do 29'ish pounds?

    I think my Bogen is a 3047 or something like that. I usually carry it over my shoulder. I was thinking of getting a pic of the "Hollywood" sign and then I was like "yeah, no, not with that Bogen....

    The Berlebach Report 2 stage tripod is rated to 26 lbs. I have one, no center column. It's pretty sturdy with a Deardorff v8 and an ordinary 12" lens, which should be similar to your KMV. I use a Gitzo 3 way head on it or no head at all. Mine has the leveling ball. I think it's a good value and not that heavy to carry around.
