Hello all! I am looking to replace my 4x5 tripod as my current one (3021 with 3047 head) was well great all around. But, it has been totally messed up by baggage handlers and it was a little heavy. I have been looking at the really big cameras website and can't decide on the CT 3442 or the CT 3471. The 3442 strong points are that it is really light like 2.3 pds.. It also has 28mm legs where the 3471 has 37mm legs but at the weight of 5.07 pds. That maybe a blessing though. I don't plan to buy the center column as the tripods have a hook under the center anyways. I am worried about the resonance of these, are there users out there? I am also not sure whether to order the CB 50D ball head or one of the PhotoClams (I don't know which one). I would appreciate any advice you guys and gals could give me. Thanks in advance!
