The RC4 has leveling windows whereas the RC2 does not. The top plate also has customizable screw positions on the RC4 to allow the plate to shift some before it's tightened.


That too :)

Not sure about either of those but the RC2 system fits perfectly on my 40D like it doesnt stick out very much if at all

That's why I ordered the RC2 instead of RC4. I heard that RC4 is too big for 40D. Just received the 190 legs from Amazon but the ball head was shipped via SLOW Parcel Pool. I won't receive it until Dec 31 for me to try the comb. OUCH!

Finally got the leg and heads in! The RC4 plate is huge, I'll mount it on my 30D tomorrow and see how it is.

I'm loving the height of the legs, and it's not as heavy as I expected. :)

Just started looking at tripods. Should I get this or one of the Dynatran setups?

Amits, how does the 30D work out with the RC4 plate?

got my legs today and awaiting the head...for the 30d and 20d i'd recommend the RC2 head instead of the RC4 - the RC4 is a very large plate...

Just getting started with photograpy I own a 40D kit with 28-135mm lens and just bought a DYNATRAN tripod and a head. Would love the Manfrotto set-up but couldn't afford it. I was bit surprise with DYNATRAN it is a sturdy and well built tripod. It can hold a max. weight of 15 pounds and I believe that I made a right choice, not comparable to Manfrotto but good enough for starters like me and I should say I am satisfied. Next stop is the Flash.
