Hello All :
Did not know where to post the topic as its not a MF related - But as I frequent this section the most and hold in high regard participants who reply regularly, I figured this could be the place -
Sharing an idea I have had for a while - Perhaps you can comment if the approach is possible/practical.
Currently, I select which Tripod to use based on the type of Head attached on it - This in turn is dictated on what I am shooting - If's its Architecture or Product, I'd want a 3-Way-Pan Head - If it was People, then a Ball Head, etc. - You get the general idea.
I'd like the option of selecting a Tripod based on its own features ( large/small, heavy/light, number of leg sections, etc. ) and then selecting Tripod Heads to suit what I am shooting - The switching could be achieved by sliding/snapping the Heads on and off just like we do with Quick Release Plates when attaching Cameras onto Tripod Heads.
At present the way Heads are attached to Tripods, the mechanism does not permit such fluidity - Can manufactures not incorporate a simple yet efficient Quick Release mechanism ?
Your thoughts ?
