    Hi, Hugo, curious which Ries head you're using w the tripod, the j or the a250? Have you tried it w just the bowl? I'm currently using the Ries a250 head on an old Ries A tripod for my 810 KMV as well as a 717 F&S but would like something lighter for travelling. The Ries legs weigh 11 lbs, the head about 2 (which is pretty close to what the cameras weigh). How much does your current legs+bowl+head weigh? Thanks

    I don't have longer lenses than a 12" Ektar, but I do have heavier lenses.
    Here's the CP26-TM2 tripod with the Schneider 210 XL. Such a thin-tubed tripod does cause the camera to vibrate, but it's manageable if you really want to use a tripod that weighs under 2 pounds.
    For everyday work I would definitely recommend going with something bigger. I do these tests mostly to see what I can get away with, but it isn't ideal for regular use.

    For those who want to fully embrace the rigidity and stability offered by the Atlas tripods, we'll be offering kits with each Atlas tripod.
    The HB-100 half ball, the CC-100 bowl adapter and the QLB-80 QR clamp will be available with the Atlas tripods at a discounted price.
    This will allow you to use the tripod without a head, but still provide you with 15˚ of camera movement, enough for most LF applications.
    The camera will have a QR plate mounted to it, and that attaches to the QLB-80 clamp, which is mounted atop the half-ball.
    This gives you a low center of gravity and an almost direct camera-tripod connection.
    It's the best, most stable tripod set-up I know of that still offers enough adjustment possibilities.

    G,

    I use a J head with the bowl as it is smaller than A250. The Ries head adds some height to the FLM tripod which is nice. If I plan a long hike, I just take the Ries head off to reduce the weight.
