    I have a Slik Pro 700 BH with Ball Head 800 that I use with my RB67. I suppose I might be pushing it with the weight of the this though. The 800 head says it's max load is 11lbs.

    My crystal ball sees a new tripod in your future. My magic-8 ball (and Meghan Trainor) says "All about that bass".

    q.e.d., and: well done!

    So you paid 100 $ for the Acugon, 50 $ for the accessories, another 100 $ for the camera.

    In my previous post I linked some offers at eBay, I didn't knew you frown upon this - you're right, I shouldn't do this, excuse me please.

    I wanted to show that there are a lot of cameras around that do not cost much money. Perhaps one has to repair a little bit, but this is neither wizardry nor witchcaft.

    I used to sell those cameras on Ebay for $150 to $200 depending upon age and condition. I'd include a lens board but no lens or extras. You did fine. Enjoy!

    The Slik 700 Pro legs support my Sinar Norma 13x18 fine, but maybe you need to change out the ball head, then? For a start, you could attach the camera to the legs directly.
