Quote:Unfortunately, it seems that there are relatively few of the SmartEQ Pros in the hands of users, and the ones that are out there have some mixed reviews.
Quote:Thanks for the reply Paul. How do you think the EQ Pro will perform with a C6 on its back? Do you think this combination is pushing it or would I be better off with the c5 (6lbs vs 10lbs) Oviously, the c5 is lighter and would probably work better, bt I really see a c6 in the future and would love to put it on this mount. How limited will I be with AP if I am pushing up aainst the 11 lb spec? And is the 11lb limit more about the limits of the tripod, or the limits of the head?
