The great tripod & head thread!

I've been working on a long term project and my Arca D4 was getting banged up climbing ladders thru decks. Found a good solution to protect tripod head, Think Tank Lens Changer 50. Works pretty darn good.View attachment 175999View attachment 176000
This Think Tank Changer 50 looks like it makes just about the perfect cover. I just ordered one for my tripod head- the cube C1. By my measurements it should just fit snugly over the head. Good recommendation!

After my frustrating experience this morning (see image thread) I was looking for tripod heads and stumbled across this very interesting Rollei tripod:
https://www.rollei.com/tripod-urban-traveler-22748-en-eur

It's not really made for MF except for maybe the X1D / GFX50R with one of the lighter lenses. But it has a very interesting head - at least I've never seen an integrated leveling base in a tripod this small & light. Seems perfect for hiking

[...]

I ordered one even though it was not exactly what I was looking for originally 😁
I can happily report that this tiny little tripod has no problems holding the H3Dii + 80mm lens - even 45sec exposures are perfectly sharp. To be fair it also wasn’t very windy: around 15km/h, but steady as I was at the coast.

I can post a behind the scenes once I‘m back at my computer next weekend ;)

Picked up a new to me Novoflex Pro75 4-section kit with Ballhead II and short 2-section ground-level legs for a nice price. Very well made kit. Thing oozes quality and the head is impressive as well.

If the cube doesn't fit in it, I will fit here, I use it for the Cube GP, fits great, padding is good but not bomb proof.
