    Re: Tripod recommendation for 4X5 studio camera

    In the studio - big, heavy and wheeled.

    For heads, I can't suggest any pan/tilt head, being out in the field. I use an Arca Swiss d4 that's pretty nice. Precise, ergonomic, compact.

    Are you using 6"x8" or 6"x9" sized bags? My holders (Toyo and Fidelity) measure close to 8" in length, not sure if the thickness of the holder would interfere with closing the bag.
