Here's my 1541T and BH-40 already posted on ben's 1541T review thread but here I go again. Yes it doesn't fold perfectly flush. 2 legs flush one leg sticks out :P but still completely satisfied with it.

Base of the tripod is larger than the RRS BH-40.

Tripod.

Manfrotto 055PROB (modified by removing the centre column and replacing with an machined alloy boss), with Markins M10 ballhead, RRS B2 LR 11 clamp and RRS B52B camera plate.

Monopod.

Manfrotto 694, with Manfrotto 466 ballhead, Markins QR-60 screw clamp.

I use a variety of Markins and RRS lens plates and an RRS BGE2 camera plate on my 30D.

Sorry the grass is dying, we've not had much rain in the UK so far this year!

Nice setup.

How are you liking your Markins ballhead with RRS QR system?

I love my Markins M20 ballhead. The best move I ever made coming from an RRS BH-55. The reason I went to the Markins was the difference in weight. You won't be disappointed if you go either brand.

mchong75,

While no set-up is ever exactly right, what I have fits my requirements at the moment. The 055 tripod is quite weighty and I'd quite fancy a carbon version of the same thing.

RRS kit is expensive, theres no way around that. But it is superb quality and as long as I use RRS or Wimberley kit it works seamlessly together. I had to modify a Markins lens plate that refused to grip in the RRS B2 LR 11 clamp.

I've spent a lot of time and more than a sensible amount of money to get to where I am now. Maybe my next support purchase will be a travel tripod that does not use up so much of my weight allowance! However thats for the future as my next buy will hopefully be a 1Ds mk4.

Quad,

Looks like you have been caught out by your monopod wrist strap as well? Mine came undone and I narrowly escaped a serious repair bill, I no longer trust it AT ALL.

No it is ok I just cut a small piece of metal and taped it in to cover the sharp edge so I can hook it into my belt if I need a handy place to hold it while folded for a bit. Glad you escaped the bill, no one likes to see the gear crashing down.

If this thread has taught me anything it's that I will look at pictures of absolutely anything gear related with near complete fascination.
