    Simply beautiful. It looks so good with your 2D!

    I love Ries tripods with double tilt heads.

    I like the Ries leg setup where you don't have to lock down the thumb screws to have it it perfectly stable condition. Michael Smith showed me that he doesn't tighten the screws very much, and that allows you to level the tripod easily, so much so I use it with an Arca head for my DSLR once you have a Ries and know how to use it, that it.
    . Now if they would only incorporate that mechanism into a light weigh for small cameras!
