    I have one of the super duty Majestic Tripods and I love the head. Works just fine with the 8 x 10 Kardan Bi although I normally use it with smaller stuff like my Fuji GX680. I think it's the only 6 x 8 camera that's bigger and heavier than my Technika.

    Hard to see, I put the Majestic head on Quick-set Hercules tripod legs. The Hercules came with a beautiful video head, I may use someday. My, machinist pal made me an adapter while I waited, he said "how bout 10 bucks". I handed him 2 twenty dollar bills and told him to stay home until he's vaccinated.

    Yeah I lucked out on that Saltzman. I've never seen one of the studio stands. Just pictures. And yes great movie!

    I have 7 of these heads, all mint with 3/8-16 screws. Different vintages, three have the built in mount base, 4 have the 3/8" post adaptor. One is mounted on a very large Gitzo tripod, the others are put away as spares.
