    I got a chance to handle Kevin Raber's cube yesterday while I was demo-ing the P65+.

    Yup, those are pretty damn nice. The fact that there is no geared rotation may just have saved my wallet... Not that there's much to save given I'm placing my P65+ order on Monday...Back, camera, 80, 45 and 120.... Yum.

    Yum is right. Since your going that far may want to look at the 150mm 2.8 on the Buy and sell. Mean lens

    Re: ARCA-SWISS C1 Cube - 85th Anniverisay Special

    Thanks Guys,
    I have been so anxious for this! I've been renting since leaving the studio I worked at 8 months ago. Fortunately I've been busy enough, that the rentals were pretty much a month at a time for most of that period, but then I Was sinking all the income into the rentals and buying lighting. No more. My kit will be complete in about two weeks. Actually if I had bought sooner I would of stuck with a P45+, so maybe the timing has worked out to my advantage.

    Re: ARCA-SWISS C1 Cube - 85th Anniverisay Special

    Talking to Ken earlier today and he confirmed that he indeed did order a Cube. It would be interesting to know how many folks here have made the plunge to the Cube say in the past six months.

    How about a GetDpi Cube Fellowship?

    Think we qualify?

    I think a thread with cube on tripod with camera attached is warranted. -

    Big investment for sure----particularly when it almost amounts to another lens instead (Mamiya 150mm f/2.8 *sniff*).....

    Arca Cube fellowhip? Brotherhood of the Cube? Hell, Arca should be a sponsor here for GetDPI....

    There are only two schools of tripod heads
    Cubist and cubeless

    Re: ARCA-SWISS C1 Cube - 85th Anniverisay Special

    I've owned both the C1 & the Linhof 3-way head...actually I was the 1st owner of a Cube in North America, ordering it at the end of 2004 and having to wait about 4 months for Arca-Swiss to deliver...this pic's from Passover '05

    http://onfinite.com/libraries/462144/5d7.jpg

    I'd originally sold the Linhof head to finance the C1, but ended up selling the Cube on ebay ~2 yrs ago...likely the only time you've ever seen on there if you watch that sort of thing. I found an old, used Linhof 3-way head for cheap and am happy with it.

    Don't kid yourself, though; it isn't quite the same as the Cube, though it is very good. With extremely wide angle lenses the Cube's fine gearing can nail a shot down where my placement ability with the ungeared Linhof head is a limiting factor (but not the Linhof's locking accuracy, which is amazingly accurate), and when shooting up close the Cube's far better than any other head you'll try because the lines of its 2 geared axes lies within the body of the camera. On the Linhof (and all other heads except the Korean copy, which is likely quite good), the camera's moving along upon the outside of 2 spheres of rotation, causing much more movement of the image and focus when very close.

    Financially I couldn't justify so much money in my camera closet invested in a tripod head, but I don't regret buying the Cube for a second. It is a dream to operate & I do wish I had the $ for it. For the Alaskan fellow considering the Linhof 3-way head, I do believe it is the next best thing.

    Re: ARCA-SWISS C1 Cube - 85th Anniverisay Special

    One step closer......I just ordered the Novoflex Castel-Q focusing rack, a couple of QR plates and the vertical bracket.

    The Cube is within my sights, trigger finger at the ready.....hemming and hawing, hemming and hawing.

    I know, I know....."the Cube is forever". Oh man, this is going to hurt. $1,700 for a tripod head? Are we crazy or what????

    Don't think of it as spending $1,700 - think of the money you'll save; this should be the last head you'll need. Welcome to the club, you've got your hand on the door now all you need is to open it and come in....

    Gary,

    Take a breath, and consider the Cube's aerodynamics: too much drag to carry that thing on a bike.

    Re: ARCA-SWISS C1 Cube - 85th Anniverisay Special

    Gary,

    Resistance is futile! Moreover, once you actually have the cube on top of your tripod, concerns over the ridiculous price will evaporate and be replaced by the common mantra, "Why did I wait so long to get it?"

    Ha! Unfortunately, that line of reasoning doesn't work in discussions with my wife anymore (it hasn't for years). Sometimes, I even have a hard time convincing myself of it. Problem is, I hate to sell any of the gear I already own, so it's not like I'd buy the Cube and then sell 2 or 3 heads that I might not need or use any longer.

    I'll wait till the Novoflex stuff arrives next week, put it on my big Gitzo tripod (with the Gitzo leveling base I got from Jack and the large Gitzo pan tilt head) and give it a test run. Might be able to put off the inevitable for a few more weeks. Still waiting for the dust to settle on the home front, after my recent purchase of the Leica R8 and lenses.

    I can't commit to it myself. Just got the Gitzo 3780 head and it should be fine. I need some other gear i have my eye on.

    Luckily, there are no Cubes to be had on this planet--at either the old price or the sale price--and won't be for another three weeks or so. Maybe this urge will pass by then.

    THIS IS THE CUBE; YOU WILL BE ASSIMILATED

    We have ONE cube in stock as of right now. First come first serve.

    By the way, this is clearly a commercial posting. I only put it here because it's short, and I know many people on this thread were thinking about pulling the trigger and it's in very short supply; I can almost guarantee it will be gone by tomorrow. If anyone feels it's out of order please say so and I will put my nose in the circle and wear the dunce hat.

    END TRANSMISSION

    Doug I looked at CI site yesterday. You or Chris need to post that P45+ refurb in the Commercial vending area , that was a nice price for that setup. Someone maybe interested in it

    Okay just to make you feel better I was forced arm twisting all the way to buy Bob's Elinchrom Ranger( which i desperately need in the worst way possible). So yea i went down in flames this morning too. But I refuse to go alone.

    Oh Terry, you too... and I always thought you were the most sensible among us and the least likely to be assimilated.

    Truly the power of the Cube is to be feared...

    OK so I figured this was the cheapest I would ever see it and I didn't need the leather bag so...now was the only time to go completely insane....

    .....now that I've done it I need to go back and read up if it is working for you. Last installment I read you were waiting for the proper plate.

    Ya gotta get "too big to fail", Guy. Then, you will be eligible for a "bail out" and we'll be funding your extravagance. You can thank us each day with an appropriate post here.

    I got a larger plate tuesday and gave it an unscientific trial yesterday and it seems now that the Cube and the Manfrotto are now level pegging BUT the cube is lighter, smaller, nicer to use and has the pan on the top (i.e. post-leveling) AND today arrived the 'official' Arca L plate which I have attached but not used and which feels very good indeed and also allows for vertical or horizontal mounting. I will report back with more detail when I have it but I expect great things!

    Best

    Tim

    This all just makes me wonder how many members here took advantage of the sale and now have been assimilated...

    Let's hope everybody that got one also bought good plates for their cameras!

    I'm waiting for the new style.

    Thought that would make you all pause for a second. Just joking
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    RRS L bracket for A900 on it's way. Was being held up by an out of stock panning clamp which I now won't need
