I've ended up with a head and tripod that I'm trying to figure out what to do with. The tripod is a Gitzo G1340 mk2, and currently mounted is the Gitzo G1380 fluid head.
The tripod is certainly heavy duty, and I've got no complaints there at all. The fluid head is $1000, so I don't think its junk, but I'm trying to figure if its a workable combination. I don't do much of anything in the way of video, and would rather have a nice ball head. I've already got another tripod, so no concerns there.
Anyone out there using a fluid head for stills? Thanks for any help or ideas!
