I am evaluating to move from the Alpa 12 TC to either the SWA or the STC for the shift possibility.
I use it mainly in travel, 60% handheld and 40% on a tripod.
Would you recommend to move to the SWA or the STC ?
-> how do the SWA handle compared to the TC : are the extra weight and size any issue (can you walk 2-3 hours with the SWA+MFDB around the neck ?), do the two handgrips of the SWA improve the comfort and stability ?
-> how do the SWA and STC compare in terms of handling ? The STC, by its name, should be much smaller than the SWA, but doesn't look so (different proportions only ?)
-> are the shift capabilities significantly better with the STC ? (looks more usable for down shift and stitch)
I find the look of the SWA so great that I hope you will tell me that is is a good choice ;-)
Many thanks for your feed-back.
