I have been looking at two setups for creating multi-row panos with both my Mamiya DF & IQ140 as well as my Canon DSLR. The setup needs to be robust to handle the weight of the DF plus lenses, so I have been looking at the Pano Package offered by RRS as well as the Arca Swiss Monoball Pan System 2.
Initially, I gravitated towards the Arca system as I already have a Cube and other Arca gear, and I know what to expect in terms of quality. And having all the items machined by Arca means everything will fit perfectly (I plan to use the Cube as the base).
However, the RRS Pano Package looks very well thought out and made. In particular, the bigger knobs seem preferable when locking and unlocking for movements.
If any of you have either of these systems, I would love to hear your comments. The panos would be both for large landscapes as well as tight spaces.
Thank you in advance for your help.
