Ok new to the Supertellies, whats the purpose of changing the lens foot to another brand. What advantage does it give verses the OEM foot or feet. Thanks, Jeff
Jeff, replacement feet are.....
(1) lighter than the stock foot + dovetailed plate screwed onto it. (You gotta have a plate or a replacement foot if you want to mount the lens on a quick release clamp/pod.)
(2) better at having the lens + camera properly balanced on a tripod gimbal.
(3) some are lower profile than the stock feet, which has lens handling benefits, whether you are shooting handheld or with the setup mounted on a pod. In addition, lower profile feet allow easier lens packing into bags.
