Well today was spent at HQ pouring over video blogs and technical specs. I dusted off my XHA1 and bought a couple of Sony Pro Mini DV tapes. Until I can begin to make sense out of some of this, I'm going to play with the XH a little. Came very close to pulling the trigger on a C100, but read a little more and found myself moving up to the C300, then the C500, at which point I grew a little weak in the knees and dove back into my research.
I had a couple of discussions with my people at Really Right Stuff and, based upon a little inside info, I did order my RRS Fluid Head and the appropriate adapters. Seems that their new fluid head meets and in some cases, exceeds the specs and performance of heads costing many times the RRS price. They estimated my delivery at about ten weeks, if I jumped in line today, it seems that the backlog is increasing daily. They do make outstanding stuff, just works and feels good in one's hands. I think I'll be putting my Gitzo in reserve and picking up their carbon fiber pod shortly.
