Took me this long to finally be able to used my new tripod head for the first time in real "field conditions”.
Before sunrise this morning I parked my car nearby one lake and carefully carried my heavy load onto the moist & soft grounded shore line. My heavy combo today was as pictured above: two cameras attached to EKI Pro MF on a GT5541. One camera with 400mm f/2.8 & the other one with a 70-200mm. Believe me this is HEAVY system to carry around - perhaps next time I will locate a baby trolley to help me move around
Once at the shore line the system on the EKI head worked really well, smooth & light weight, and was a real pleasure to work with, even to capture the fast flying birds with 400mm & TC20 attached.
