FDMEhhh... doubtful I think it wouldn't do what I need. I need something bigger. And a little more costly would preferred so that I know that I am getting my money's worth.
Yeah. You need something worth AT LEAST 5000$. a 4400$ tripod just sounds too cheap, you're totally right.
Get a tripod from the Russian Cosmodrome. That aught to give you all the weight capacity you'd ever need, and you can probably get one pretty cheap, too. The Russians are always down to sell old soviet tech for a few rubles.
Have a nice day, Bluename.
