View Full Version : Studio Shoot Using RRS setup?
18th of May 2009 (Mon), 09:38
Is it overkill if I use Really Right Stuff ballhead + Quick Release Clamp and L plate for studio shoot?
Or should I have a cheaper combination? Or just handheld?

If it works for you, do it. For a person shot, I mostly just use the tripod to hold the camera when I'm doing something else.

PhotosGuy, you mean you just mount your camera directly to tripod? You didn't use any ballhead and clamp?

IMO, once you've used an RRS L-plate, you'll leave it on the camera, and forget about anything else...

A word about them: When you decide to buy one, get three instead, because over time...
1. You will want another one anyway.
2. You'll lose one.
3. And they'll have stopped making that model & you won't be able to find a replacement.
And my tripod doesn't need a ball head. It's been around for decades, too. ;)
A guy used to make them in his garage.

I thought RRS last almost forever? Why do you suggest to buy 3 then?

One for the camera, one for the lens with tripod ring, one to loose...
Okay, two might be enough if you screw them on tight ;)

Why do you suggest to buy 3 then? Why did you only read part of the post? :D
