Quote:PJ, can you post a photo of the top of this tripod and how you adapted it to your G9? After some math this tripod does look like a good choice price wise for me. I need to be able to attach a 6" diameter flat plate to the hub in order to attach an ADATRI.
Quote:I guess the real question is how does it compare to the Losmandy HD.

Quote:So you didn't machine the lower part of your adapter into a ball like shape anymore? It just sits on top of the 100mm ball socket?

Also, just wondering, any chance that rubber disc increases your damping time just a bit? Seems like a flexible material sandwiched between the metal-metal might degrade rigidity. Not being critical, it's an honest question.
