Good to see many fine 50MP images - my favourite ZE/F.
'Does the Feisol have a hook underneath where you could hang something?'
I use a loop of 6mm shock cord (or several of them cut and tied to different lengths) for different levels of tripod height; loop it over the hook, put a boot/shoe in the loop and stretch it by stepping down on it for huge downforce. Cheap, light, small, clean, easy to carry/use, ever ready - unlike a bag of anything, swinging in the wind capriciously, hither thither and yon A bag does not provide anywhere near the downforce as a cord, unless you get like, 50 kgs of rocks maybe, rather impractical. How do you move the tripod with a bag of stuff in it when you need to? With great difficulty I imagine...
cord like this:
but any hardware or camping store will have.
result: rock steady and secure tripod, the legs of which flex slightly against the shock load. We experience big winds in Aust, and a lot of the best light conditions occurs in big winds. In a real big wind, like might blow you over, push down hard on the base of the head as well as using a cord, while tripping the cable release. Happy foul weather shooting!
