I have just gotten into large format photography and I am looking at a tripod system for my Linhof Technikarden, mostly field work, wide angle landscape and portraiture.
I am actually a filmmaker and have been shooting video for many years, i currently have this tripod for my video work
it has a payload of up to 6kg, (Its actually more) with decent legs (with spikes) and spreader.
Has anyone any experience using these kinds of tripods with large format cameras?
I am wondering about dampening qualities, stability and vibrations. I know it's heavy, but I am used to lugging it around by now along with around 25kg of video camera gear.
I could fork out money for a good geared head or monoball and decent set of wooden or CF legs, but i would rather not to be honest.
